This is an indoor omni-directional antenna with 5.8 dBi gain. Also included is a heavy duty magnetic base that measures 2.5 inches in diameter and weighs 11 ounces
Compatible with RAK 2, Nebra Indoor, and Bobcat 300 (915 MHz USA and Australia versions only). This is a Rokland 915 MHz antenna kit.
You can use the included magnet base with the factory antenna of any of these miners, or with the included 5.8 dbi antenna. As gain increases, your vertical path will decrease, allowing you to communicate with hotspots from a greater distance but reducing your ability to be in the path of closer hotspots. As your community experiences new miners over time, it may be necessary to adjust what antenna you are using to deal with the density.
We recommend using with the included magnet base for maximum performance.
Low loss shielded cable
Our cable includes 11 feet of CFD-200 shielded coax cable built-in, with RP-SMA termination (to connect to your miner). CFD-200 has a gain loss of just 1.1 dB at 11 feet. Lower cost bases generally use RG58 cable which has a loss of 1.7 dB, over 50% more loss.
