- Jaycar remote question

I have their LR8822 remote control ( http://www1.jaycar.com.au /) hooked up
to open a gate. Range says over 50m but I am lucky to get 10m. I tried a
fair length in my roof space but no go. I thought it could have something to
do with the insulation foil, so I connected it to that but still no good.
What's the catch? Aerial length? Should it be horizontal or vertical?
Thanks for any help,
Re: Jaycar remote question
At the moment the antenna is coming out from behind the wall plate (where
the unit is) and hanging on the wall, about 1.5M in length. If I pull it out
horizontal into the room I find the reception is better but still nothing
spectacular, maybe I get a few more metres. I thought I may need to screw up
an external antenna on the outside somewhere. These are made for cars so I
wonder if the antenna should be a lot shorter.
