placement of 3 cards on a PC box

Having done this before, If you use external antani and locate the
antani about 3ft from eachother, it works most of the time.
My config was:
3 x 100mW PCMCIA PRISM2.5 Cards (on Channels 1,4,10 each at 2mbit)
Costom AP Server Program
Contact me off list for more information.
