    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Nice job, I remember you were telling me about the pigtail issues @ Shmoo, but looks like that's sorted out. I might be picking up the same model soon, so be prepared for the barrage of Q&A I'll have for ya!

    I agree, it is very nice, he has two antennas so that makes him one of those "£337 H4x0r$"!!!

    The metal parts are 1/8" aluminum for the bases to hold the antenna connector and usb port. Then there's a steel sheet metal cover over that to keep the coax from getting screwed up. I build the bases several months apart so the holes I drilled into the case didn't line up, so that's why they are at different heights... I had built two identical mounts for rp-tnc pigtails, which would have been at the same height. I'm not too worried about this now though, it gives my wispy some extra height to clear the display. The radio is the stock radio for the eee. There's really not a lot to it. I think the hardest part was getting the holes I drilled in the cover to line up with the holes I drilled in the antenna mounts. For the 7" eee a 12" pigtail with work for the left hand side of the display looking at it from the back. You'll need an 18" for the other side. Where I have them mounted is about the only place to do it without having to move the speakers. Where they sit, the screws that hold them in place are just below the speakers.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I'm more interested in if it can stay up-right without holding your hands on the keyboard.

    It would be funny showing up at one of these events with 8 more antennas in between the two on each side. An entire wall :P.
