I’ve been a technology antenna hawker for years now. I’m not really a hawker at all but the convenience of being able to purchase my own antenna has made me an expert at this. You can buy just about any antenna from any shop and if you get stuck with a problem you can always go to the internet and search for the problem.
As a technical specialist, I could probably do a better job of selling a specific type of antenna but I do like the convenience of buying an antenna when I need one. My antenna buying is done mostly by word of mouth but my own research is always done on the internet so I like to talk it up.
I bought an old antenna once, but it wasn’t exactly convenient. The antenna I bought was too long and it didn’t do anything. Well, it did do something and it was annoying. I have a couple of antennas that aren’t broken or too big so I don’t feel compelled to buy new ones all the time.
I personally use both my TV, radio and phone as antennas. As such, I have three antennas to choose from. I have two of each and I find myself buying different antennas based on the radio frequency of my device. For example, I have an antenna for my TV that is about the same as my iPhone and I have an antenna for my cellphone that is about the same as my TV. I also have an antenna for my phone that is about the same as my TV.
At its core, antenna technology is the same, it’s just the placement of the antenna. The antenna placement for TV, phone, computer, etc. will naturally vary based on the frequency of the device you’re using. The same is true for your WiFi usage.
This is all good, but now there are a lot of people who will say, “You can’t just use the same antenna for everything, I’ve read the FCC rules.” The problem is, the FCC rules are a guideline. They change every few years, so they’re not a firm document that can be relied on.
If youre the type who likes to get up close and personal with your tech, you will probably get a lot more useful information from a “proper” antenna. If youre the type of person who likes to watch TV while browsing the internet, then by all means, get a WiFi antenna, because it will be a lot more convenient than the antenna youre use to.
The problem is that the FCC is actually just an application of the rules that can be broken as the rules change. Its purpose is to guide the government in how to move the internet toward more efficient and faster networks. In other words, it is a rule that is meant to guide the government in better ways, so it would make sense that if you were to apply it to your antenna, it would be a lot more efficient.
Because one of the rules that the FCC is supposed to serve is to protect consumers, we can easily assume that it wants us to be more efficient. The problem is, this rule is actually really vague and has a lot of ways in which things can be broken. The FCC’s site has a great section detailing the types of rules that can be broken. Now, if you’d like to go to the FCC, go to www.fcc.gov and click on “Rulemaking.
If you’re going to break the FCC, you’d better go the FCC website because that’s where the rules are. The FCC wants us to be efficient, but it also wants us to be efficient with the rules. If the rules are too vague, there’s no way the FCC can enforce them. Now, these are the rules that the FCC wants to prevent you from breaking, but there’s no way to enforce them.
