We lived in Elk Rapids for a few years. I miss it up there.

Beautiful harbor, great Chinese place. Ask for "Dr-G Spicy" seriously they will remember me!

This mod involve taking apart the receiver, moving the antenna lead outside. I covered it in heat shrink.

This improved range, no more drop outs. Frame rate is still a issue but less of one as the signal is better.

Hmmm, Antenna mod. Interesting. I may have to look into that.

It looks like we swapped locations. We love it in Elk Rapids. It's a nice small town right out of a Norman Rockwell print. We live up near the north end of the lake just past the Wandawood Resort. I retired from Selfridge 1-1/2 years ago.

We eat at Chang Express at least 1-2 times a month. I like their Thai menu. The owner's daughter went to school with my step daughter. The do have great food.
