Telco 16dBi 850MHz Telstra Next-G Yagi Antenna

  • Designed for Telstra Next-G devices
  • Narrow beamwidth, high F/B ratio
  • Fully welded alloy construction with black powder-coat
  • Short Semi-Flex cable tail with N Female connector.

This durable antenna has been designed for applications requiring high performance - sporting low passive inter-modulation, and low VSWR. All 20 aluminium alloy elements have been precision welded to the boom to ensure long service life and black UV-stable powder-coat provides corrosion protection and assists ice-shedding in colder climates.

To ensure maximum performance a finely tuned chrome copper-alloy dipole has been VSWR-matched with a semi-flex SF141 microwave-grade transmission line, terminated with a white bronze N Female connector. The folded dipole assembly has been injection sealed to eliminate potential water ingress.

Designed for operation on 850MHz 3G networks such as Telstra Next-G, this antenna has a stable VSWR response across the entire 824-896MHz bandwidth, permitting use with practically any communications or telemetry application within the band.

Is this the right antenna for me?

If you're having serious problems with your Next-G broadband internet or mobile phone signal, the performance of this high quality fully welded aluminium antenna cannot be matched. Measuring in at 2.4m, this yagi is a solid piece of hardware that is often used for:
- very flat outback locations
- areas where transmission in the direction of the base station is clear of obstructions for several kilometres
- when no service is available, even for several kilometres
- when no other antenna cuts the mustard.

Higher Gain Yagi Antennas

To increase the gain of a yagi antenna by 3dB you have to double its length. A good quality 16dBi yagi measures around 2.4m in length, so you can imagine a 19dBi yagi should measure between 4-5m in length. Accordingly having a larger yagi is not practical, instead higher gain is achieved by using grid antennas, such as the two models below.
