Default Mystery on 7100t

Please Login to Remove!

When I pop the battery cover off the back of my 7100t, there is a small hole near the bottom, right below the battery contacts. it looks like it could be one of two things: an attachment for an external antenna, or some sort of manual adjustment (like volume, squelch, or a radio tuner or something like that). Can anyone shed some light on this for me? I know that almost everything these days is all digital, so for something like this to have a manual adustment on it of some sort is stretching it a bit far. right now, i'm leaning towards an external antenna connection. It just seems to be in a very odd spot, and the fact that you would have to remove the battery cover to use it seems rather defeating. My last option is that it is a manual reset button. I haven't stuck anything down there yet, little worried about messing it up.

Someone shed some on this will ya.

No clue... although you had me curious as to if I had one on mine and I do.... it's doesn't really look like it would sbe something that would be used for adjusting... but I agree it does loook like you could plug something in to it

If you look at the inside of the battery cover, you'll notice a 'prong' that seats into that hole.
