RFI 7.5dBi Folding Antenna Kit - Caravan, Camper or Motorhome

 

Key Features

  • Manufactured by internationally renown antenna manufacturer, RFI, the CD8197 is a durable and weather resistant antenna

  • Consistently achieves an impressive gain across all Australian mobile networks

  • Ideal for new 5G/LTE networks with true multi-band coverage.

  • Multiband covering all of the 3G, 4G & 5G frequencies currently in use

  • White construction blends in with your caravan or motor-home

  • At 114cm, it's the ideal length for practical mounting and storage

  • The kit includes a solid white nylon swivelling ratchet mount and 13mm chrome adaptor, allowing easy attachment and removal of the high gain antenna

  • The ratchet mount folds 180 degrees flat for minimal height when travelling

  • A stainless steel steel antenna holder (supplied with this kit) can be mounted on the side of the van for antenna support when travelling.

 

Usage

  • 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 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 CD8197's 7.5dBi gain is an excellent compromise between high/low gain, making it the ideal antenna if you live or work in remote areas - low enough to work when you're in town and travelling through hilly areas, but truly comes to life when out in remote and flat areas.
