Didn't need much courage, Johnny. i just learned a long time ago to get detailed instructions and correct tools before starting a repair.

Thanks.

Nope, try again fibberich. That is simply the connections from the PCB to the antenna. What makes an M3 cool is what is inside all that die cast metal (which is as big as the main PCB board). The LNAs are very small parts.

Yea, I thought the red strip was going from the horn to the LNA's - "The nuclear core" - Ha! Just draws your eye to that center area.

Well, whatever's going on inside that die-cast metal is Microwave Goodness!

And, thanks to its special patented design, that Microwave Goodness stays inside the casting

I was referring to the antenna signals staying inside the casting, it's stealth feature by design
