Questions and Answers
Hello .. I've recently ordered one of these and was wondering what cable I should buy to extend it. Also what is the limit of cable length I could add? Thank you :)
It comes standard with a 1m N-type to RP-SMA Male cable. You should get the same, if you wan to directly connect the antenna and Hotspot, lengths up to 10 meters should be fine, although not going beyond 5 might wield better performance as far as coverage goes.
Dear Team, Is this antenna compatible with the UK spec. Helium hotspot base stations? Or is it tuned for USA frequencies? Do you supply one for the UK market, please?
The antenna page has a drop down menu where you can select the LoRa band you need. Worldwide band compatibility is present.
For the UK, you can select the EU868.
This is a great antenna which you can check as "perfect coconut mink" on helium network. It suppressed my expectations. Never had any trouble and packaging was superb. If I would buy an antenna in the future definitely will be same one.
Best 5.8dbi antenna in the market
No issues, wish the shipping cost was cheaper though
I have three of these hooked up to my RakV2 miners. Couldn't be happier with the results.
It boosted my Helium Hotspot coverage significantly! But be warned, it's a yard long.
