new M3 :) -- no IPX antenna socket :(

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hi Folks,
so ... I have received my new M3 (arrived within 2 weeks in the UK, which is good).
...BUT... there's no IPX antenna socket in the new board layout.

As mentioned in another topic, the in-built chip antenna is as useful as a chocolate teapot.
I can connect only if I place the M3 on top of the Access Point.
The AN6520 is a waste of board space (and makes the AP6212 useless).

Sales @ friendlyarm said that I could remove the chip antenna on the board to install an external antenna.

I have NO idea at all how to do that, or what the wiring points are.


best regards
You can refer to my image.

thank you!
Hi there,
many thanks -- this picture is exactly what I needed.
The surgery is a little fine for my clumsy fingers, so for now I'll leave the M3 sat on the access point.
When I do need the M3 to work at range, I'll just have to be careful with the soldering iron :)

many thanks & happy year of the rooster
