RFI CDQ7199 3G/4G/4GX/LTE Bullbar Antenna


Key Features


  • Patented PCB based Meander™ collinear design offering the ultimate in pattern and gain stability

  • Ideal for all new 4G networks with true multi-band coverage

  • High gain across 4GX/4G+ band suiting fringe and rural applications

  • Q-Fit® removable whip system for ease of removal in low height environments such as multi-story car parks, car washes or for security purposes

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


Additional Information


  • Trusted by government, the farming community, and industry professionals Australia wide, this antenna consistently demonstrates a high gain across all Australian mobile phone networks

  • The outstanding performance of the CDQ7100 series 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.



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

  • In hilly areas, cell towers are usually located at the hill's peak, and if you've got a very high gain antenna (like 8.5dBi), chances are the antenna won't have a tall enough angle to receive signal from the tower

  • With a significantly higher gain than the CDQ7195 and CDQ7197, the CDQ7199 is the best performing antenna in flat outback and rural areas, where cell towers are few and far between

  • The CDQ7100 series is designed with our Q-Fit® system for quick and simple removal of the whip section - this allows users to remove the whip section when entering car washes, low height areas such as car parks and for security

  • The antenna is provided with a waterproof sealing cap to prevent the ingress of dust and water when the whip section is removed

  • 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 CDQ7199's fully ground-independent design results in true 8.5dBi gain regardless of mounting position.
