Will a TIU perform better if I drill a hole in the TIU and Extended the antenna wire through it.



Original Post

Before you do,

Are you getting a lot of out of range messages on the remote?

Is your TIU placed well? Is the top facing the remote? ( mounted stood upwards)

Are both transponder boards in the TIU and the remote well seated?

I did drill a hole in my first TIU and put the wire out. I have four different TIUs now and never needed to do that again. I only have one dead spot in the basement and if I turn slightly the remote works well.

For one problem installation, I drilled the hole and also mounted an antenna cut to the half wavelength of 900mhz, made a significant difference.
