I have a flow meter that is already installed in a box no more than 6" below ground level. It keeps periodically losing signal and disconnecting from the controller. It’s about 70’ away but it’s down a hill slightly so I think it’s having a hard time seeing the controller signal over embankment.
I really don’t want to pull it out of the box and re-plum the irrigation line. Anyone have any suggestions how I could get 5-10dB boost on the signal hacking the unit or adding a small antenna? Because the unit is in the box I’m tempted to remove it and try to take it apart and somehow tap into the antenna and install one outside of the box.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
