Hi Matt

Any opportunity to extend the coaxial line?
I have thought about this issue, and planned to try one of these:
https://www.data-alliance.net/u-fl-extension-cable-male-to-female-1-5-inch-2-in-3-in-4-in-6-in-7-in-8-in-10-inch/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAnL7yBRD3ARIsAJp_oLZgihbPsuyjcXW51G1_1HEFxT-kxrcJSm2XSu4Eh6WNAjJhtA9x8_waAonsEALw_wcB

But, Im not sure where I would mount the antenna, I am not fond of the idea of the worlds smallest coax running in/out of my enclosure.

What about the modem? Do you have a spare xbee3 around to swap out with the suspected ‘weak’ one?

Living vicariously through you with this issue, because I anticipate crossing this bridge.
