  • The frequency, gain and Wattage input requirements are well within the LORA 915mhz range- Can these antennas be used as a more directional antenna with the LORA Radios ?

  • why is this seemingly always out of stock? =/

  • Does anyone have an idea of how much this thing weighs, and can you take this out of the case to decrease the weight. I want to try and mount this on a drone.

  • Hi, i want to know which products i need to buy specifically to connect a external antenna with my Module M6E.

  • When will this product be available again? Is there an alternative antenna that you could recommend for the simultaneous RFID reader and is available?

  • I received my antenna a few days ago. I just wanted to point out that all the shiny mounting hardware shown in the fifth photo is not actually included.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a mounting bracket like the one shown in the picture? Has anyone had success mounting this to anything, and can you share your experiences? Thanks!

  • Happy Monday! The latest comments are 2 months old and about 3 months ago it sounded like you were working with the manufacturer on a issue. Any update? I have all the other parts I purchased through you for a project but the lack of this antenna is keeping us from moving forward. Any update, even a “bad” one, would at least help in our planning. Your site is great and I appreciate you not shipping a defective product, so hopefully it gets resolved soon. Thanks!

  • Hey there, we bought your simultaneous reader for a project, first tests are fine but we definatly want to test it with an external antenna. So we’re also very interested in any news about the antenna. Do you have any recommendation for an other antenna in the meantime? thank you in advance

  • Any update about this item? Please..

  • When will this be available?

    • I was about to ask the same thing.. Waiting patiently..

    • Sorry about that. We had them in but they were breaking during shipping so we pulled them from stock and are working the the manufacture to figure out the issue. I don’t know if we have an ETA at this point, but keep checking back, as we are trying to get them back in stock as soon as possible.

  • What board we can use it with?

    An affordable one, because the “simultaneous M6E” is out of scope for me. I am looking for an 868MHz reader with good distance range.

  • It would be nice if you sold a TNC to U.FL so we could plug this into the RFID ready you sell.

    Edit: I see you sell a SMA to U.FL….That’s more high frequency connections I’d care for, but it will do for now. Thanks for making this antenna available and such a reasonable cost.

Long read range with SRTR

I’ve tested this mounted on a tripod, reading tags with SFE’s Simultaneous RFID Tag Reader. As long as the tags are clearly visible, and oriented correctly (vertically, in the case of WRL-14151), I can get 15+ feet read distance.
