I really wish that was the case :(; I have several other antennas (like ~5-6 and tested each one and its always the same)
So the behavior goes like this:
If the antena is folded I have a connection (most of the time, sometimes it gets lost). (you can see I have a connection by looking into the screen where I draw the battery and a wifi symbol ^^"
If the antenna is straight up you can see that there is no connection
YET, when I touch it (and keep touching it), the connection gets established?
Its worth noting that the RF settings are set like this:
And that the RF24 module with the antenna is shielded with aluminum paper and grounded to the base of the antenna.
Any other thoughts / ideas I should check / experiment with?
