Danno,

How did the antenna work? Was the signal improved? Why don't you start a new topic and take some photos on the antenna and your set up...

Anthony the new antenna worked great, I went from one bar to four and it started sending me pictures immediately. Prior to this I didn't get pictures for a week. I didn't take any setup pictures but I will send some wildlife pictures. Thanks a million! :D :D :D

thats great... so your "frozen" camera turned out to be in a poor signal area. I am glad the antenna helped. I still want to see if you can make a ground plane for it. And post some pictures of the antenna nda set up. How high is it mounted ?

What percent signal were you at prior to and what percent do you typically see now?

I only had a 6 foot ladder so I would say it is about 10-12 feet off the ground.

I am at 62.5% now, before it was around 20%.

Going from 3g to 4g lte is huge, lightning fast transmissions. When I had my lookout in the city I think it was taking and sending photos in about a ten second turn around time. Also I want to clarify my lookout wasnt frozen, it wasnt communicating with the portal. Ridgetec in canada did a few things and it let loose 40 pictures from the days it wasnt talking.
