    I wonder if it will work on the ET-72 that I have??? It only has one probe but it looks like the same unit and when I plug it's the probe it reads saying it's #1 probe. But thanks Jim for the link.

    I wish my yard/house was big enough to make this mod necessary.
     
  7. THANKS FOR THE LINKS ......Now I just have to do my homework.....got the feeling I'll give it a try though...getting too irritated moving the unit around the room looking for a good signal all of the time......!

    I know what you mean, first day I was amazed cause I could take it all the way to the other side of the house but that must have been dumb luck because now I can go inside and into the living room and have to wonder if it is still connecting.
    Wonder if I can boost the range to 500' then I could keep the smoker out by the shed and sit inside in the warmth (or cool air since Summer is on the way)
     
  9. I realize this is an old thread and this topic has been discussed ad nauseam, but I am sooooo pleased with how simple thhe receiver mod was to do and how much it increased range. I recently moved my "cook's corner" about 3 feet from where I was located which resulted in the reciever not getting a good signal from the transmitter when placed next to my baseball/nascar/football watchin chair. I placed a wire in the empty hole on the receiver antenna circuit board, drilled a small hole for the wire in the case, and WOW what a HUGE difference!

    I did both my transmitter and receiver... didn't help mine
     
  11. hmmmm.  how long is the wire you used?  I am not elec engineer, but I read where 6.5" on the receiver end is MAX.  If a diff length (over or under) it actually hurts vs helps.

    6.5"... is that from where it's soldered on or from the top of the case where it comes out ??
