I never understood why they needed a QD on a heater hose that gets changed every 10 years. Been a long time but I think I just slid mine over the heater outlet nipple and used a clamp.

genrally speaking Don, what you are looking for is an antenna with the same length as the wavelength of the radio signal.  Or at least an even division of that signal.  e.g. 10M signal you would want an antenna about 32ft long.  As your frequency gets higher the antenna gets shorter. Normally a 1/4 wavelength antenna is the best compromise.  So a 900MHz antenna would need about a 33cm antenna or 8 for a 1/4 wavelength.

http://www.hottconsultants.com/techtips/freq-wavelength.html

So look for a booster with an antenna with a wavelength in the range of your carrier's cell signal wavelength

well ken thats a good question.  I would assume 01-02 since the communication protocol is the same, but I could be wrong.

(I looked up the instructions - 99-02 require the diodes)

Don, I know it will pain you but read the instructions.  Diodes are cheap

Don so you are the only other guy putting $1200 steps on a 18 year old truck lol.  Go ahead and buy some diodes as you will need to install diodes in the door sensor wire on the 2001 and they don’t include them. The directions will be in the install manual but when I called asking why they weren’t included they asked “how many people are really putting $1200 steps on a 2001?”  I had to agree. They are right since only the 2001 requires them.

Well my oldest daughter had dance competition yesterday and they crushed it. All 3 of their routines placed 1st.

Today I had breakfast and then brought them home breakfast since everyone else slept until 11

Then I finished the hardie and caulked and then put the insulation and Sheetrock and first coat of mud. Did I mention I hate Sheetrock and mud??

Don, I'm sure you have it under control.  Just make sure they have an ID (infectious disease) guy running shotgun on your son. MRSA is nothing to jack with.  I had sepsis with staff years ago. 105 fever and 70/30 BP.  One day over a beverage I can tell you about how the rumors of my demise were greatly exaggerated...

That cable has a lot of loss because it’s small diameter. If you have a lot left over and it’s just coiled up you can cut it to length and re terminate and improve your signal a little more.

This is where I got mine for my "hide".  Be aware that there has to be a minimum signal level for the booster to work.

enter *3001#12345#* and hit call on your cell phone will get you signal information in field test mode

Don be careful ordering AC Delco brakes (or other parts). They have about 4 different lines and only the OEM are high quality. They try to compete on price with inferior products but only the OEM will really last.

Bob, yes the only other man door.  In 10 years, I've only had it open once for ventilation.  The deed restrictions are 2 car only and this one is tight so I plan to put a smaller fridge that the one I have, up against the newly created wall space and get rid of the shelving unit so its easier to walk around the front of the wifes SUV. It's maybe 19.5ft long by 19 wide.

Dave, I laid down a bead of NP1 polyurethane and used a treated 2x4 and concrete anchors to form the base plate

Been needing to replace the side door to the garage because the builder grade door was rotting at the sill. Decided to replace with a window and frame it in







Got it framed and weathered in and about 8 rows of hardie back up.  Tough to cut hardie while it’s hanging to stagger joints.

May be tough to match 10 year old paint.
