RFI CDQ2194 Bullbar Antenna


Key Features


The RFI CDQ2194 sports similar performance to its CDQ2195 and 2197 bigger brothers, but with a lower 5.5dBi gain. The key feature of this antenna is its reduced height, measuring in at 655mm tall compared to 900mm and 1200mm respectively


  • Cutting edge printed circuit board design

  • Q-Fit removable whip technology

  • Supplied with 5m low loss coaxial cable, with female FME connector

  • Low profile 655mm height.




  • This antenna is not commonly used unless vehicle clearance height demands it. The CDQ2194's decreased form factor also makes it a great choice for M2M and telemetry applications where visual impact is a major consideration

  • As a rule of thumb: the higher the dBi, the flatter the angle the antenna can receive from

  • In hilly areas cell towers are usually located at the peak of the hill, and if you've got a very high gain antenna (like 9dBi) chances are the antenna won't have a tall enough angle to receive from the tower

  • The CDQ2194's 5.5dBi gain is the perfect compromise between high/low gain, making it the perfect antenna for travelling through a range of different areas - powerful enough to give you great signal when in remote areas, but low enough to work when travelling through hilly ranges

  • With a 13mm stud mount on an heavy duty electropolished stainless steel spring, these antennas may be installed on a number of mounting brackets and are ideal for installations in commercial vehicles, four wheel drives and trucks

  • The CDQ2194's fully ground-independent design results in true 5.5dBi gain regardless of mounting position. "Q-Fit™ removable whip system for fast and simple removal when entering low height areas, car washes or for antenna security." - read more on the RFI website.

  • When travelling through different terrain, the removable antenna can be swapped over to a larger or smaller size and gain, ensuring the best performance in all geographic areas. NB: Due to the size of the CDQ2199 Whip, it is not recommended for this base. The CDQ2199 has a heavier spring base and is recommended for all replacement whip or whip combinations.
