What type of external?    Omni,  Yagi, Panel,   what gain ?

Is there a signal strength indicator to use to aim the antenna ?  On both
USB and PCMCIA cards ?

What is the gain on the USB internal antenna for comparison ?

What about the home appliance ?  Does it have an internal panel ?

Also,  it appears only half of the coverage area in Philly is active, 
any idea when
the suburbs ( west chester,  collegeville ) are going live ?
