Hi guys and gals,
Can anyone answer or point me in the right direction in regards of modifying antennas? I'm pretty sure it's not allowed but can't find a definitive answer on the FCC website. The main question is:- if I've got a 2.4GHz antenna that's got a BNC connector (push and twist) on it for a Symbol Access Point can you cut off the BNC connector and crimp an RP-TNC (screw-on) connector in its place (or craft a BNC to RP-TNC converter)??
As stated, I don't think it's totally legal to do that but would like to have 'official' confirmation before the RF Police pay a visit!
Yes you can.... as long as you don't go past the maximum transmit power per antenna gain. I have had antenna cables cut and crimped to a connector I can use.
