Thread: LTE Outdoor Antenna

  1. #1

    Default LTE Outdoor Antenna

    Wonder if someone could point me in the correct direction:

    I am looking for an outdoor antenna for my 4G router. It is a Huawei B593.

    From my experience, I will need two antenna's to get proper MIMO performance. I can use two omni directional antennas and I do believe you you get integrated antenna's nowadays as well.

    My signal just went to shreds all of a sudden indoors.

    I figured that it may be a bit more flexible having the two omni's, but it might be easier and less work just mounting an integrated antenna on a pole.

    Any recommendations? I am not even sure where to shop for one - been out of the loop for a while.

    I also had a thread going there at some point over there.

    You can go with:
    http://www.otto.co.za/products/antennas/
    or with http://www.antennas.co.za/Products/ProductList

    There may be even more now. I was looking for something about a year or so ago but went with a WISP instead.

    Thanks - I appreciate. I believe you are not staying too far from me - mind sharing the WISP you are at? It will be awesome if they have coverage in my area.
    I have phoned many without much joy.

    I'm with BitCo but they aren't accepting any new home users.

    Good luck!

    Will keep you posted, hopefully with pictures, when I finally buy and install it.

    Priorities first - got myself a second mobile package with Afrihost as it gets expensive topping up. Now that that is handled, onward to getting better signal.

    I struggled with a decision but decided to get the Poynting LTE XPOL-A0001 OMNI LTE antenna. I have ordered it today and should be arriving on Thursday.

    It is a 2.5dBi gain antenna (Will probably average 2.0dBi) vs the 11dBi for the XPOL-A0002.
    The A0001 can be window, wall or pole mounted and I am not convinced that the A0002 will give me better signal strength and the A0001 is cost effective.

    Hope I am right. :-) Here is a picture:

    Will let you know how it goes once I receive it.
