    Edison external antenna version question(s)

    yp66

      It was about to happen sooner or later..., I have purchased various edison modules, some of which are the external antenna version.  Unfortunately, I removed them from the boxes (and recycled the cardboard) but now I realized that except for one still in the box, I cannot tell which ones are the internal antenna and which ones are the external antenna versions.

       

      So, is there a way to tell by looking at the markings or serial number on the module alone if it is the internal or external antenna version?

       

      Also, if I power the external antenna version without an antenna attached, is there a chance I will damage the module ?  I noticed that the one I know is the external antenna versions still has the on-chip antenna on it but it is unclear if it is connected.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.
