It's unlikely. We think the 435.150 tx is still on a very, very low power, so if you have a good station you might hear it if the battery voltage comes up enough.

This week I want to look into trying the S band transmitter. Being from a cordless phone, it may still work at the lower voltage available.

We've not given up, but patience is the order of the day.
