LoRa Fiberglass Antenna Type N - 5.8dBi (860-930MHz)

If you need maximum distance for your LoRa project you need this incredibly durable, outdoor antenna with 5.8dBi gain. This 860-930MHz antenna is 90cm / 35.5" long and includes hardware for pole mounting. Made of fiberglass and aluminum this antenna is ideal for heavy-duty and high-power LoRa base stations but can be used with LoRa nodes as well.

Antenna has a type N male termination. When mounted vertically this shrouded connector helps prevent against water and weather build-up on the threads.

Note: This antenna doesn't ship with a cable. We recommend the N to RP-SMA interface cable to connect the antenna to an RP-SMA connector. If you need to go further to U.FL checkout our RP-SMA to U.FL cable.

We welcome your comments and suggestions below. However, if you are looking for solutions to technical questions please see our Technical Assistance page.

  • Is there a datasheet or other technical specification available for this antenna?

  • Is it possible to extend range by using this large antenna on a base station and a much smaller antenna in a vehicle?

    • Hi there, it sounds like you are looking for technical assistance. Please use the link in the banner above, to get started with posting a topic in our forums. Our technical support team will do their best to assist you.

      Unfortunately, this is kind of a "loaded" question without the pertinent information. Also, that isn't quite how antennas work; especially, if your "smaller" antenna has a decrease in gain. It is probably more likely that it would decrease the range of the system. For more information look up an RF propagation, this article has some good basics.
