Thanks for this Jim.

I already have the pig tails and a bucket of antennas. I think my only 
problem will be where to mount the connector. The 3 Ethernet variant of 
the WRAP is a bit busy on the back panel.

FYI my next adventure into WRAP will be with their newest single port 
board for use as an Asterisk PBX. I'm thinking that I can use them for 
exhibitions etc were my staff have to demo our products but are nearly 
always out of cell phone reach (you'd think the phone companies would 
sort that out). I may even add a Wifi node to it for the sake of ease at 
the stand. Nothing worse that trying to explain to a set builder where 
you want your data cables only to discover they've install phone wires
