5dBi Magnetic Base Omni Antenna

 

Key Features

 

  • Supplied with 3m of LMR195 antenna cable

  • Your choice of SMA or FME connector

  • Black anodised finish

  • High wind speed

  • Strong rubber-lined magnetic mount

  • Suits all wireless broadband devices and mobile phones with direct connecting antenna ports.

 

Usage

 

  • Ideal for increasing the strength, speed, and reliability of your mobile phone or wireless broadband device. Perfect size for indoor use, the magnetic base mounts simply onto any flat metal surface for maximum performance

  • If your mobile phone reception or wireless broadband speed is low, this antenna can be a cost effective way to give your signal that extra 'kick' it needs

  • Easy to set-up, easy to remove - the detachable whip makes the antenna easy to store when not required

  • Despite its compact size (just over 30cm) this antenna performs exceptionally well in a range of different areas, from hilly to flat areas, city to country, and can be used to give a boost to areas with low-moderate signal.

 

Why does it need a metal surface?

 

  • A metal surface such as a filing cabinet, car roof, or gutter acts as a 'ground plane' for the antenna, which acts as the 'second half' of the antenna vastly increasing its performance

  • The larger the metal surface, the better the performance. If you don't have a metal surface to mount the antenna on, you can still use the antenna on any surface at a decreased level of performance (we generally find it to be twice as powerful when mounted on metal).
