the micro-antenna of the GTA04 is not at an optimal position. It had to go behind the display
so that it has a directional sensitivity. This is a little different from the GTA02 where it is
farther away from the display.

The best result should be if you point the upper left backside towards the base station.

Hope this improves it, but don't expect best in class.
