Brought this over from another backup camera thread. Thought it might get more attention from antenna and "reception" experts.
I know a little about this stuff, but not much.
System is FM, 2.4 Ghz, distance from camera to monitor is about 45'.
I am attempting to mount the camera up high by the center clearance light and run the antenna inside the
AS with as clear a shot down the center isle through glass to truck dash.
Any help is appreciated.
"Ok, I received my camera system last Friday and played around with several temporary configurations on a 300 mile camping trip this weekend. I need some help from antenna type gurus.
The antennas which come on the 4ucam system at the link below, are pretty small and anemic.

I needed to move them closer together, but I think that any more than 10 feet of extension cable is resulting in more dB loss than I am gaining by closing the distance between the antennas.
Can someone fill me in on the best way to get a signal boost. I am going to try the 2M antenna listed at the bottom of the page in the above link. Can someone explain the gain in a 2M? I will still need to use a 10' extension to get the antenna where it needs to be...both to hide it as well as give as clear a shot into the cab of the truck as possible"
