    Questions and Answers

    • What is the beam height?

      You can check the datasheet, there are antenna diagrams for a number of the frequencies in the band.

      https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/Accessories/Antenna/Fiberglass-Antenna/RAK_860-930MHz_3dBi_Fiberglass_Antenna_Specification.pdf

      You should be able to get the beamwidth for your desired frequency from there.

    • Do these antennas require (or benefit from) a ground plane? And if so, do you sell a suitable ground plane?

      Require would be a no. Benefit probably, however, I cant ascertain it as I have not tested it. The casing/board acts as the ground plane one way or another I suppose. We sell no ground planes. I might be limited in my knowledge, however from what I have seen it would seem pointless to try to extend the range beyond what you get with the big antenna as it is, right? I mean LoRa is quite long-range already and in an urban scenario, I am pretty sure you will be bottlenecked by the capacity rather the range, especially as the networks start really scale.
      This is my opinion though, please if you have a different one or you have some comments do share :)

    • What is the length of 3db and 5.8db lora 915Mhz antenna?

      3dB ->360 ± 10mm 5.8dB ->800 ± 10mm

    • Hi, is there any possibility you will consider making this antenna with a female N-type connector?

      Honestly not likelly. Our Gateways are with Female ports so this will not be usefull for them, thus there should be a good reason to produce a large quantities of those as they will not fit the Gateways anymore. If it were that we had a large quantity order perhaps, but for small numbers it would a lot more expensive.

      Naturally, if you offer a solution we would consider it.

      What would be the application you are working on so you require such an antenna?
      You can mail me with details at vladislav@rakwireless.com if you would like to share details.

    • Can I able to connect this antenna directly with RAK811 WisNode Lora Module using Pigtail interface converter which is given along with this antenna???

      Yes, you should be able to do this.

    • Hello, I want to purchase a Fiber Glass Antenna - 5.8dBi - N-Type to iPEX is it the right one to connect to RAK2245 Pi HAT Edition? Thank you

      Yes, you are right you need the one with the N-type to iPEX in order to fit it to the iPEX connector that is on the RAK2245.

    Good working Antenna for Lora / TTN

    Essential mounting parts were missing but with some DIY I could make it operational and fit on my existing pole

    Good product ships slow

    Quality build, but ships slow to Canada. Communication not great once purchase is made either.
