• Like using and amplifier and external antenna for an android phone maybe? Assuming you cant do more on the puck then use the max transmit power

  • Would an external wifi antenna automatically be used for bluetooth as well, seeing that it is all 2.4Ghz?

  • If you've already increased the transmit power with NRF.setTxPower then yes, I guess you're going to have to look at ways to make the receiver better.

    As a very low-tech solution you could make the receiver more directional by placing it in the middle of a parabolic reflector - you could google 'Cantenna' for some super cheap options.

    Just using an external USB Bluetooth dongle might help, especially if you found a good one, or one that you could attach an external aerial to. No promises, but at least something like https://www.newfrog.com/p/150mbps-wifi-b­luetooth-4-0-wireless-usb-adapter-networ­k-card-with-antenna-125900.html seems to have a better aerial on it.

    Otherwise if you're just on a phone you might be a bit stuck I'm afraid.

  • It looks possible it'd be ok, yes... But I wouldn't want to say it'll definitely work!
