how can i attach an antenna (or a cable as antenna) to this cordless phone base? Answered

theres ANT1, ANT1_SHORT and ANT1_SGND. I thought maybe solder a cable into ANT1 only and it should work. I need to extend my phones range by a couple of meters (it says 50mts but it doesnt even gets to the 5 mts. probably due to the walls) thanks!

i did find this schematics: https://philips.encompass.com/shop/model_research_docs/?file=/MSC/sm/KXTGD224N.pdf in my search. Its the TG220 one. I probably would just solder and try it but i fear i might damage it as i got no replacements

whats your country do you live in?

Your particular phone works on 1.91 GHz,what limits this range can be antenna type and any other devices that use 1.91 GHz.

By sodering an antenna you won't increase the power output of the phone but the direction the phone signal travels.

You may need to experiment a bit - I guess your phone is working on 2.4 Gig hz, It should work quite well for a reasonable distance, my BT phone doesn't seem to mind the walls.

Try a 6 inch or so length of wire or if you want to try a more omnidirectional antenna try this design.
