Maverick ET-73 Mods

A few years ago someone posted a thread on how to modify the ET-73 for better reception by drilling a small hole and pulling the antenna wire through the case. I can't find it anymore. It had pictures and nice directions. Anyone know where it is?

Thanks Lew. Pigs, your video link is for access to the switches and not the antenna mod. Thanks anyway.

Re: Maverick ET-73 Mods

I have the ET-72 and I have been less then happy with it. It's constantly dropping the probe and never seems to update when it does display the temp. Does anyone else have this issue?
