I'd like to buy one XBee Pro with Wire Antenna, and another with an u.fl connector. The problem is that, on the only website I can buy them, the U.Fl one costs 20 € less than the one with a Wire Antenna: I wish I could keep these 20 bucks.
On the other hand, I've already got two unused XBee with Wire Antenna: I wonder whether I could unsolder the U.Fl connector of one XBee Pro, and instead solder the wire antenna of one unused XBee.
So, Could I just replace an U.Fl connector with a Wire Antenna ? Won't this lower the range ? Are the XBee w/ ufl connector different from XBee w/ wire antenna, except for the antenna/connector ?
