The evolution continues with the release of the CDQ7195 4G LTE cellular mobile antenna. In response to the lightning fast roll-out of Telstra 4GX and Optus 4G+ services nation wide, Telco approached RFI to design a vehicle mounted antenna capable of operating on the new 700MHz LTE network. Part of the challenge was also to improve gain on regular 1800MHz 4G services, and provide some operation on the new 2600MHz network to ensure the antenna would remain futureproof for Cat-11 LTE devices capable of providing 450-600Mbps by aggregating 700+1800+2600MHz bands together. Like the CD7195, the secret to it’s outstanding performance lies in the use of the patented Meander™ radiating elements. These Meander™ circuits are coupled together to deliver extraordinary consistency in gain, coverage pattern and bandwidth. The result is a unique antenna able to operate across all mobile phone networks globally, housed in the one unit. The CDQ7195 provides an impressive 6.5dBi gain on lower bands such as 3G, Next-G, and 4GX, as well as a modest 4.5dBi gain on regular 4G bands. It's important to note this antenna does not provide MIMO, if you require the best possible Internet performance you should use two antennas, separated by around 300mm.
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 CDQ7195's 6.5dBi 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. "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. With a 13mm stud mount on an heavy duty black 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 CD7195's fully ground-independent design results in true 6.5dBi gain regardless of mounting position.

What connection does this antenna have?
This antenna has a 5m 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.
If you would like a shorter length of cable, or a different connector please send us an email and we can customise this antenna for you.
