pentax k-x remote alternative


first time here, just found the forum and hopefully going to be on it regularly now.
just got my k-x loving it, want to use it from a distance, and the ir remote as you will know just won't cut it over 15 feet. really i want to use a radio transmitter, but as ive now found out to my dismay is there is no jack where i can plug the remote radio receiver in.

so is there any way i can use a radio transmitter, or something in particular to activate the shutter from a distance, really just say 20m at least. o noticed there is the mini usb plug on the body, is there any adapter cables that will let a wireless remote plug in and work there?

thanks for any help guys.
