Is this antenna right for me?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. With a significantly higher gain than the CDQ2195 and CDQ2197, the CDQ2199 is the best performing antenna in flat outback and rural areas, where cell towers are few and far between. "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. The secret to this extraordinary performance lies in the use of two unique PCB radiators. These meander circuits are coupled together to deliver extraordinary consistency in gain and pattern. This latest design offers coverage across multiple networks – ideal for the latest requirements where network operators can switch calls between bands. With a 16mm 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 CDQ2199's fully ground-independent design results in true 9dBi 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.

Special Delivery InformationThis product is over 2m in length and must be sent by specialist freight companies. Understandably a 2m long cardboard tube is very easily damaged so this product is shipped in a custom made PVC enclosure. Due to the costs incurred shipping of this item is very expensive, irrespective of whether we're shipping it to Sydney metro, or to Canada.
