  1. i would like to know more about that antenna mod for 5823..

    • Here‘s a link to the guide we used. THe hardest part is snipping off the SMA, the rest is easy.

      • thank You so much..

      • I ordered some of the TS5823S on the above recommendation. I have found that the SMA connector on the transmitter has a male pin and is not compatible with standard cloverleaf antennas that also have male pins. Are there any easy solutions to run a standard cloverleaf antenna?

        thanks,
