    (But you look silly with it attached to the metal button on top on your hat.)

    And I wear it defiantly!
    Now Bruce - don't be so harsh on yourself. You didn't look out of place at all with that antennae on top of your head at the event!!

    Before I ordered the external antenna, I asked BRDAD what he thought about it. He said to go for it, and suggested that I get an Army helmet liner to mount it on. I intended to have it ready for the Mt. Agammm?? event, so I got one, but the helmet liner turned out to be a cheap plastic kid's thing.

    You will see me DEFIANTLY wearing my helmet liner with antenna in the future! LOL!

    We were out yesterday doing a couple of caches and I had the same problem...20ft from cache and then suddenly 100ft from cache. I know I can't move that fast!! But that's been a problem recently even without tree cover but much more exaggerated in tree cover. I have the 60cs and the garmin vista and they both do it so I think there is something else going on.
