Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

As you probably know, in most (all?) cellphones with built-in FM radios, the headset cable doulbes as the antenna. That presents a problem when the user wants to use a Bluetooth headset with his phone.
Do any of you smart folks out there know of a method for integrating an FM antenna into the confines of a phone or PDA case that will yield good reception? I have done a Google Search for compact FM antennas, but did not come up with anything useful. Your ideas will be appreciated.
