Usage

  • The 7.5dBi Gain is perfectly suited for Marine Applications, with reported usage out 100km+ off the Coast. 

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

  • The 20° vertical beamwidth offered by the CDQ8197 will help to alleviate any issues with Rolling Seas.
