    Questions and Answers

    • Nearest helium hotspot in my city is 5km away. do you think that 8DBI antenna will be sufficient to reach this hotspot?

      Hello,

      This all depands on where the antennahotspot will be mounted. If the greater portion of the distance is unbstructed it will be possible.

      However if both hotspots are at glound level and there is nothing but buildings (as opposed to free space) between the two hotspots it is unlikelly.
      In any case you will get significant range improvements with the antenna. Just use the following general rules as a guideline.

      1. Position the antenna as high as possible.
      2. Make sure there are as little direct obstructions between the two points (line of sight) if possible.
      3. Try to has as short of a cable as possible between the antenna and the hotsport to reduce the attenuation and noise.
      4. Think of lightning protection as this will be outside.

    • Will this work for the EU hotspots?

      This 900M-930M is not suitable for Europe. But our EU based fiberglass 8dbi antenna will be ready soon(in around 10days)

    Amazing antenna

    Great antenna overall. Build quality is great and sturdy. Saw a huge jump in earnings in the first hour after I installed it. The included mounts help with an easy fast set up and the cable is a good length to reach my hotspot. Definitely would buy it again and I already recommend it to 2 of my other friends!
