Interesting.  My out-of-the-box configuration does not agree with what 
is listed at http://www.dba.org.au/index.asp?sectionID=120  You might 
have been lucky in that your particular hardware and drivers were 
smart enough to correct a mis-configuration.  Or maybe you system is 
configured correctly and mine is not.  I will experiment.

I am using one external antenna.  I think that Philip is doing the 
same.  Signal strength seems quite good here.  Kaffeine is reporting 
signal strength of about 94% and snr or about 80%.
