#86293 Hi all,
I love the D1 mini board from Lolin or Wemos, they "created" this form factor so I want to buy their products instead of the cinese clones but...

they have no "attach" for an external antenna.

is it possible to workaround the problem and attach an external antenno to those baords?

#86301 Hi, a valid point that a modification is required to use the external socket. In reality the surface mounted resistor is so small it will come off the board if you heat one end with a standard soldering iron, the remaining pads that need to be linked are closer that some of the jumper pads I’ve come across.

This should be well within the scope of most people with a soldering iron.
