Help Me Mod FM Transmitter *pictures*


Hi!

I got this freebie FM Transmitter. It's branded Nordic, model FM-018. I Suppose it's a cheapo with the resellers logo or something. I want to make antenna longer and better but I can't seem to find it. I havn't really messed with electronic components before so your help would be very much appreciated.

Sorry for the crappy light. Hope anyone can help

I read in a comment on a guide to modify the zune fm transmitter, a guy used a multimeter to detect a better spot to 'weld' an antenna to. If I try that with a multimeter what am i looking for? How can I identify the antenna?

The pictures are kinda hard to see at the resolution needed. Can you do some closer shots at higher res?

The antenna would normally look just like a small peice of uninsulated wire that may have one end unattached to the circuit board. It could also be a chip type mounted on an ic chip.

If its the wire type I would suggest just adding to it versus trying to relocate it on the board. It would be easier to solder with less chance of heat damage to other components.
