I am trying to use a second antenna with one XBee Pro 900HP with a U.FL connector to pick up a signal from a different location than my first antenna. I see on the chip that there is an open pad next to the connector, is this meant to be used for an antenna? If so, can I just solder on a U.FL connector and it will work fine? Is there any software changes that need to be made?
In the overall system, each antenna will be talking to its own XBee in a mesh configuration which I think I'll be able to distinguish between them with unique packets easy enough so I am not worried too much about this.
