RFI CD8194 5.5dBi Bullbar Mounted 3G+4G+5G Antenna


Key Features


  • The key feature of this antenna is its reduced height, measuring in at 675mm tall compared to 920mm and 1160mm respectively

  • The RFI CD8194 sports similar performance to its CD7195 and 7197 bigger brothers, but with a lower 5.5dBi gain.

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

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

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

  • Supplied with 5m low loss coaxial cable, with Male SMA connector


Additional Information


  • The new CD8100 Series 5G LTE antennas not only cover the 4G LTE bands (698-960 MHz, 1710-2170 MHz, and 2300-2700MHz) but now the new 5G LTE band (3400-3800 MHz) and are ideal for use with cellular modems & active repeaters, especially when signal is poor.

  • The outstanding performance of the CD8100 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.

  • The CD8100 Series Includes an integrated spring with threaded stud/nut for easy installation on vehicles.



  • This antenna is not commonly used unless vehicle clearance height demands it

  • The CD8194 provides an impressive 5.5dBi gain on lower bands such as 3G, Next-G, and 4GX, as well as a modest 4.5dBi gain on regular 4G bands & 6.5dBi on the 5G 3500MHz band.

  • 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

  • With a 13mm stud mount on a heavy duty black chrome stainless steel spring, the CD8100 Series can be installed on a number of mounting brackets and are ideal for installations in commercial vehicles, four wheel drives and trucks.

  • The CD8194's fully ground-independent design results in true 5.5dBi gain regardless of mounting position.
