I have a remote control on a 12v water pump, what and were can i get a magnetic aerial for better frequency?

The water is pumped from my van for window cleaning.The problem i have is i have to lock the van when working and loose a good signal,so is there a magnetic aerial i could put on the roof of the van that would pick up the remote signal.

You could run a waterproof cable THROUGH the water line being pumped from the van - and attach a switch to the 'destination' for your pumped fluid...
I'd guess it says "433Mhz" somewhere on the remote ? If not, try and find out what frequency it works at. Are you set on Mag mount ? I know some really dinky little body mounting aerials.
