I have a Nokia 2112 CDMA mobile. Don't use it often, but would like a portable aerial to use with it when I'm away bush.
Prefer just to have one that I can put up when I need and take down when I don't.
No-one seems to be much help.
Any advice appreciated.
Cheers,
Scotty

Scotty,

I too have a 2112. Problem is that the phone doesn't have a physical connection port for an aerial of any sort.

Mine sits in a cradle which has a coupler directly behind the internal aerial of the phone. The coupler provides the interface to an external aerial.

Where did you get the kit from and what did it cost, including installation?

I got a coupler for my 2112 from Miko Technology (found them on ebay) for $16.95, with FME connector/cable to connect to your antenna. Can't vouch if it works properly; haven't set it up yet.
You will need a suitable antenna for CDMA band, not GSM (about 820-900 Mhz) and a cable with an FME connector. An antenna from the old analogue band will work fine. Miko also sells them.
Pretty easy to install it yourself.

FYI you can also get antennas that do GSM as well as CDMA freqs- they generally cost $5-15 more than just CDMA. The couplers also do both GSM and CDMA. May be worth getting a dual band antenna so you dont have to fork out for a new one later. If you are chasing a temp installation, check out the magnetic bases for aerials.

I have a Nokia 2112 and I used an adaptor that allows the phone to connect to the aerial.
I purchased this along with a CDMA bullbar aerial.

Available from a company In Ashfield, Sydney called WES

TEL.02 9797 9866

Approx $15 adaptor
$80 aerial

Scotty,

You're not going to believe this but its true.
I went into the local Telstra shop and they were having a clearance sale of "old" stock.

I bought a genuine Nokia cark 126 car kit (minus the cradle) which was reduced from $399 to $49. Picked up a suitable cradle and coupler (about $49 dollars each) and now i can connect either the 2112 CDMA or the 6610 GSM which use the same connector.

Unlike their earlier car kits (of which I have two) the cark 126 has a removable cradle. So, as one updates their phone, they also replace the cradle for about $50 instead of $399 or so for a complete new kit.
