I have a maverick and was able to extend the range by pulling the antenna to the outside of the unit. If i remember correctly, this was discussed here on a thread.
It was easy to remove the back and pull the coil spring(antenna) to the outside of the unit. It doesn't look great but works great. And you have to be careful not to stick yourself with the spring.:)

do a google search on super charging the maverick for much better range...it is very easy to do and works much better....I think the article and pics are at instructables.com or something like that

or, get a stoker and be done with it:)

Nu-Temp for me. I've heard more Maverick breakdowns than Nu-Temps, which is why I have one.
It is Brethren preferred!
