Cordless phone hookup

9 posts in this topic

Here's the situation.

I've got a shop about 100' from my house.

I've got a satellite receiver in it, where I have to pay $5 per month because I don't have it hooked to a landline phone.

Is there a way to get this receiver hooked wirelessly to my house line, whether phone line or ethernet, so I can save the $5 per month?

Or do I have to bury a phone line from the house out there?

I have never heard of wireless phone jack but that is not to say that someone out there might not sell something like that. If you do bury a cable make sure to get weatherproof cable. It will be black and gel filled and you should be able to get it in one or two pair. I would get it in two pair just in case you need a spare wire some day.It would not hurt to put lightning protection on it but it is not required.

They exist. Most work by transmitting the signal down the electric line. Check out PHILIPS Wireless Phone Jack And Extension Unit in your favorite search engine

They claim it will work for satellite receivers and it looks like Lowes and Circuit City carry them and for the price they are a lot cheaper and a lot less labor.

Thats what I have for my direct tv it works great. Just remember you have to follow the directions to a t and you shouldn't have any problems. Bought mine on evil bay it was cheaper.

Pretty sure a good cordless would work that far, all you'd need is a second docking station just for charging purposes. I know I've been able to venture pretty far from my house without dropping a call. Have you ever tried a cordless out there?

I don't need the phone itself, but a way to run a phone LINE, literal, to a satellite receiver.

I think you can run wireless internet to it cant you? If you have wireless internet already, you should be able to just buy a wireless adaptor and plug it in to the DVR box. Wireless internet should go atleast 100 ft!

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
