A cheap outdoor antenna for mobile phones could save you money in the long run, according to a new study by the National University of Singapore.
The research team found that a cheap, small and portable one was a good investment to have for your smartphone and tablet, especially if you’re spending less on internet service, as well as for other reasons.
“Mobile phones are the main mobile platform of the world,” said Dr Shilpa Kumar, who led the study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
“We also found that people who used mobile phones were less likely to spend money on food or on clothing and were less able to use the internet, which is why they’re not spending as much money on the internet as they used to.”
Dr Kumar said there were a number of benefits to using an outdoor antenna.
They could be cheaper, because you can install them on your own property, and you can keep them away from water and other contaminants.
It also gives you an option for the mobile device when you are at home, as they’re more compact and not too heavy.
“For example, if you buy a new smartphone, you can store it at home and put it in the drawer to use it at night.
If you’re not at home you can put it on your smartphone as a mobile hotspot,” Dr Kumar said.
And if you can’t keep your phone at home when you’re away, then you could keep it on the road to a place where it can be easily found, like a friend’s house, she said.
What’s an outdoor TV?
An outdoor TV can be made from a single piece of plastic or glass, such as a TV antenna, and is usually cheap and lightweight.
However, it can also be made using a combination of metal, wood, fibre, plastic, and other materials, as it will not only reduce its weight, but also keep it away from moisture.
Its main advantage is that it can cover an area of about 200 square metres, which would be sufficient for a large TV, even if it was placed at an angle, or at an elevation that would give it a higher viewing angle.
The disadvantage of an outdoor television antenna is that its signal strength is weak, which can cause a lot of interference to the internet.
The research also found there were several other disadvantages, including the possibility of interference between the antenna and other equipment, such a TV, and interference with other signals, such radio and TV signals.
How to get an outdoor mobile TV antennaFor the study to be credible, it had to be done in Singapore.
The team, led by Dr Kumar, used data from more than 1,000 mobile phone subscribers and found that almost a quarter of them had an outdoor tv antenna, which had been installed on their property.
They also analysed the data from the phones themselves and found they had been paying close attention to their surroundings.
The results showed that they were spending a significant amount of money, which led to a significant increase in the number of internet connections and usage in their areas.
The team also found they were able to keep the antenna away from other equipment and water and waterborne contaminants.
“We did a lot more measurements than before, but we found that the number and amount of connections that they had were significantly greater than before,” Dr Ji Soon, one of the authors, said.
“So if you have an outdoor solar panel and an outdoor radio you could install the same amount of antennas and antennas could be connected to all your outdoor equipment, even to the antenna of your car.”
So why does it work?
Dr Kumar explained that the technology is not new, and there are some advantages that come with using an antenna.
“When you install an outdoor microwave you have a very small antenna and there is no water in the air, so there is less of an effect of the water on your signals,” she said, adding that there are also benefits from having an antenna that’s at an extreme height.
“If you have two or three antennas, then they will give you very high signal strength, but if you are just one or two antennas, there will be a lot less signal strength because of the antenna,” she added.
Dr Ji said that one advantage of the technology was that it gave you an alternative to paying for internet service.
“It is also possible to use an outdoor outdoor TV when you go out to a restaurant,” she explained.
“You can also use it when you travel to places that have outdoor air conditioning.”
The study also showed that when you were in Singapore, it was easy to get one, and the cost was cheaper than buying one.
However the study didn’t mention any of the other advantages, such that they could be a big help if you need to use your smartphone in a crowded restaurant or have a big party, but you are not comfortable using it outdoors.
