    I have installed Bluetooth Explorer 4.0.9 from developer.apple.com. I need to know how to use Bluetooth Explorer to change from using the internal Bluetooth antenna to using a 300 foot Bluetooth dongle.

    If someone could provide me with step by step instructions that would be great.

    Note to Apple use long range BT antennas in your computers... for God sake! 15 ft is nothing.

    Tools > HCI Controller Selector

    Go to the tools menu and select HCI Controller Selector. It should be pretty self explanatory from there. Note, when you change it, all you BT devices will need to be forced to be re-paired.

    It seems on some older OSes that the selection does not stick across reboots. I have found today that it sticks across reboots on Mavericks.
