RFI 7.5dBi Folding Antenna Kit - Caravan/Marine

phone antenna for caravan mobile broadband aerial for motorhome

Manufactured by internationally renown antenna manufacturer, RFI, the CD2197 is a durable and weather resistant antenna, consistently achieving an impressive gain across all Australian mobile networks. It's white construction blends in to your caravan or motor-home, and at 114cm it is the ideal length for practical mounting and storage.

This kit includes a solid white nylon swivelling ratchet mount and 13mm chrome adapter allowing easy attachment and removal of the high gain antenna. The ratchet mount folds 180 degrees flat for minimal height when travelling. Plus a stainless steel steel antenna holder, to be mounted on the side of the van for antenna support whilst travelling.

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.
The CD2197'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.

Experience & comments about this product
"I have used one in some very distant places (up to 70km as the crow flies from the nearest tower.) on undulating country on the RFI 2195 broomstick.... an excellent combination. also the RFI 2197 if on flat country will get signal even further out

They are without question the 2 best antenna's on the market. "
