It just keeps getting better!
I live in the dreaded cell phone "dead zone". On the rare occasion that my cell phone works, I usually have to be standing outside and hope no fighter jets fly over. The other day, my husband and I were standing next to each other, he was on my BAHA side and his cell phone rang. He looked to see if he had enough "bars" to actually use the phone without running out the front door. At first, he only had one bar and figured the call would be cut off, but as he moved the phone past me, near my BAHA abutment, he noticed his phone went from 1 bar to 5. I didn't know what he was doing, but the whole time he was on the phone, he kept leaning over near my head. (I thought he was just crazy!).
So he finished up his call and then told me that was the first time he was able to use his cell in the house and that it worked better when it was near my BAHA abutment. Now, I was sure he was crazy. So we did a little experiment, and sure enough, if you hold the phone in front of you, the best signal you get is one bar. Hold it up near my BAHA - it goes up to 5 bars. Apparently, I'm a walking antenna!
I can't wait to see if I can get a satellite signal and stop paying for cable tv! The possibilities are endless - completely self contained GPS? On-star? Sirius radio? High speed internet?
I'll bet everyone is going to have BAHA envy now!
