Usage

Not sure if you’ll get 4G? With an equally high gain on all other 2G/3G networks, you can still improve your current connection. With the Telstra 4G network expanding to cover 60% of Australia’s population in 2013 this is an antenna you can buy with the reassurance of future compatibility. Take full advantage of the blistering fast speed the Telstra 4G network offers. If you’re outside the official 4G ‘coverage zone’ or your modem keeps switching back over to Next-G, this antenna will help you lock on, or increase the signal strength and speed of your 4G connection.

Better for hilly areas

Lower gain Yagi antennas are ideal for areas where hills are very close to your location (within about 2km). Hills create a multipath environment – transmissions that bounce off trees or terrain at an acute angle cause signal echos. Having travelled a further distance than a straight line transmission these signals are delayed, and to a simple receiver would be nothing more than interference. However, thanks to clever technology used in cellular communications, multipath signals can recovered by your modem’s RAKE combiner (or with cyclic prefix for OFDMA based systems). A RAKE receiver consists of a series of sub-radios which read the incoming signal at different delay periods (typically one chip in WCDMA) and then combined to result in a higher quality signal. This antenna rests at ground potential, providing improved lightning protection and reduced precipitation static noise.

Termination is via your choice of an ‘N’ female coaxial connector fitted to a short LMR195 cable tail, or SMA male connector fitted to a 10 metre low loss LMR195 cable. We recommend the use of LMR400 grade cable when using this antenna on 4G due to it’s high frequency.

Connection

  • You can choose between a 10m cable that terminates with an SMA Male connector, or a short 50cm lead with an N Female connector
  • If 10m of cable is enough you can use the appropriate patch lead (make sure it has a SMA Female connector) to connect to your modem
  • If you need to use more cable, or are using it on 4G, you’ll need to select the N Female connector option so you can attach a super low loss cable (which have N Male connectors).
