USB cable improves signal (not only on FP)

A trick for those with a weak mobile signal:
Attach a USB cable to your phones USB port and just let it hang - dont connect it to any other device.
The cable will act as a counterpoise for the built in antenna and may improve your signal. In my case the phone changes from a slow and unreliable EDGE link to 4G with speed, bells and whistles.
Different cable lengths bring different results - longer is not always better because the length is ideally tuned to the wavelength. Lot of room for experimentation for the FP radio amateur…


This, sir, sounds like plain old Voodoo. :no_mouth:

The built-in FM-Radio proves: this is no trick.
