Provision for external antenna on base station

The base station does not have provision for external antenna.

Base stations may need to be placed in locations that are not good for signal propagation in order to provide local access to the sync/silence button, thus limiting the rangefor cameras.

The ability to place an antenna on a 6' cord would resolve this and be a fairly trivial change to the design of housing and pcb.

It would likely resolve a large number of the range issues reported by users as well.


Living in southern California where many homes have stucco exteriors with a wire mesh backing that works to block signals this would be great to have.  Better yet would be to setup a mesh system that the cameras extend so all of the cameras can reach the base station.
