    Hi Dominik,

    That would be really tricky to do because it is an inverted F planar antenna on the PCB. Are you putting the Tailwind controller inside a metal enclosure or something? It is strange that you would only get -83 a few meters from an access point. That actually sounds like it might accidentally be connecting to a different AP and not the one nearest to it for some reason.

    It is a plastic enclosure. I also checked the AP and it the the correct one. It could either be: the Gate Radio 433 interference or something in the neighborhood also interfering... a pity with the antenna.

    You said you have 2 Tailwinds right? Have you tried putting the other one at that location to see what it reads? There will be some natural performance variation. Maybe the other one is better?
