 ah the freecom came with an adaptor.  and the rubbish antenna that
only works in say china (where the broadcast signal strength is so
high that literally a bent paperclip will do, to receive a perfect
picture...)  so yes you don't get much choice, here, because as you
can guess, USB dongle size is a pretty small formfactor.  watch out
for removing/inserting the adaptor too many times: those small
connectors only have a limited lifetime number of insertions/removals.
