9dBi Magnetic Base Omnidirectional Antenna
- Supplied with 3m of LMR-195 cable
- Good performance on all cellular networks
- Comes in three easily assembled sections - perfect for FIFO.
This type of antenna is popular for those struggling to receive signal indoors despite ample signal outside the house, or low signal in remote and rural areas. This high performance magnetic-mount antenna demonstrates exceptional wideband performance on not only the lower band 3G networks such as Telstra Next-G and Optus 3G, but provides 6dBi gain on the 4G networks. Widely used across many of the QLD and WA mine sites, this Telstra Next-G antenna is popularly used to solve weak phone reception issues inside temporary site buildings and portable accommodation dongas. Ask us about our mining packages - if you've got a phone or Internet issue when travelling or while onsite there's a good chance we've already got the solution. Ideal for increasing the strength, speed, and reliability of your mobile phone or wireless broadband device. This impressive antenna stands at 81cm tall making it small enough to use indoors but big enough to pack a big punch. The magnetic base mounts simply onto any flat metal surface for maximum performance. If your mobile phone reception or wireless broadband internet speed is very low, and a small antenna just won't cut it, this antenna can be an effective way to give your signal a big kick in the right direction. The true beauty of this antenna lies in it's versatility; performing well indoors, on the car, mounted on machinery, on the roof, and for these reasons the 9dBi magnetic base antenna is one of our top sellers.
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 certainly 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).

What connection does this antenna have?
This antenna has a 3m cable that terminates with an FME Female connector. The FME Female connector is the most common type of connector for mobile antennas and mates with the FME Male connector found on patch leads and phone cradles.
