    Not that I understand the full meaning of it, but can anyone tell me what
    the power of a Nokia handsfree kit is? 2W, 10W someother W??

    Re: Handsfree Transmitter Power

    in the US, you'd be looking at a max of 3W of phone power (RF) or you may be
    looking at the audio wattage (i.e. how loud is the speaker?)

    Whatever the output power of the phone is; car kits don't usually contain
    a power amplifier.

    In the UK, GSM900 is a max. of 2W, 1800 1W. The phone won't usually
    transmit as much as this as with a good signal from the base the power
    output will decrease accordingly, only if you are really struggling for a
    signal will it TX at full power.

    OK - I was a little concerned that my new car kit has an aerial stuck to the
    inside of the car windscreen instead of a proper outside one - I thought I
    was frying myself in my own oven every time I made a call! On the matter of
    not containing a power amplifier, with the old car kit with external aerial,
    I always noticed a dramatic improvement in signal strength as shown on the
    phone's display of number of 'signal bars', most noticeable when for
    instance there might not be any signal with the bare phone at all, but in
    the car there would be, say, three bars

    That type of aerial is basically crap, get rid of it and fit an external
    one. It doesn't have to be huge, a small 1/4 wave glass mount on the rear
    window will do, something like this:

    Hope this helps,

    Presumably that gadget you've just recommended would need a corresponding
    connector, like some sort of inductor, on the other side of the glass? So,
    presumably I'd need effectively to have half the car kit refitted?

    It comes with the corresponding inside component, which has a coax cable
    which you connect to the car kit's aerial connector.

    I use one and it works well with my CARK-91/6310i.
