Key Features

  • The RFI CDQ8197 is perfect for the traveller heading to regional areas, providing enough gain to stop the drop outs between towns but still providing a 20° vertical beamwidth to get the service up and over the rolling hills or dunes.
  • Ideal for new 5G/LTE networks with true multi-band coverage.
  • Multiband covering all of the 3G, 4G & 5G frequencies currently in use
  • Q-Fit® removable whip system for ease of removal in low height environments such as multi-story car parks, car washes or for security purposes
  • Patented PCB based collinear design offering the ultimate in pattern and gain stability
  • Supplied with 5m low loss coaxial cable, with Male SMA connector


  • The new CDQ8100 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 is ideal for use with cellular modems & active repeaters, especially when signal is poor.
  • The outstanding performance of the CDQ8100 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. It is our flagship product and is designed for the harsh Australian conditions. & includes an integrated spring with threaded stud/nut for easy installation on vehicles.
  • The CDQ8100 Series whips can be removed via the integrated N male connector in the whip and N female connector on the spring assembly.
  • 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.
  • “Q-Fit™ removable whip system for fast and simple removal when entering low height areas, car washes or for antenna security.” – read more on the RFI website


  • As a rule of thumb: the higher the dBi, the flatter the angle the antenna can receive from making this antenna perfect for the regional travellers
  • The CDQ8197 provides an impressive 7.5dBi 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 higher 5G 3500MHz band.
  • With a 13mm stud mount on an heavy duty black electropolished stainless steel spring, these antennas may be installed on a number of mounting brackets and are ideal for installations in commercial vehicles, four wheel drives and trucks
  • The CDQ8197’s fully ground-independent design results in true 7.5dBi gain regardless of mounting position.
