I know this style of thread has been posted a number of times however I am facing a slightly different problem.
I received my xEM kit from an Australian distributor and simply cannot read from the tag no matter the orientation. I’m looking to purchase a selection of antennas and potentially design one specifically for my tag however I cant tell if the tag is dead on arrival or if its the limitation of the stock antenna that came with my Proxmark 3.
My questions are:
a) Should I inject the tag anyway as it may be a limitation of the tag interfering with the metallic syringe.
b) What is the most fool proof way of determining if the tag is DOA.
c) What should I do before I contaminate the (~$100AUD after shipping) tag and render it non-injectable.
d) Other than the advertised cylindrical antenna has anyone suggested alternative antennas.
Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
