Customer Comments

  • What kind of connector would be necessary to connect to this antenna? It looks like it would have to be a a female SMA, with an outside thread?

  • This antenna works great. Significantly better than “Quad-band Wired Cellular Antenna SMA”

    The difference is about 7 RSSI (the value returned by AT+CSQ) tested on a GSM modem, in the middle of Boston.

    I coupled this with a low-loss RG58 SMA extension cable (not sold on Sparkfun) and the results are excellent. Nearly no signal loss in the cable.

    If you need a cellular antenna for your project with great signal, this is it.

  • Great antenna if you need the gain it offers but not as durable as I’d like. after getting bumped around some the swivel part no longer stays. still electrically ok. Hope to run it on the network analyzer when I find it again.

Worked perfectly

Connected to two Horner Elect PLC in order to text tank levels back to water plant. Perfect fit. Units are talking every 40 seconds.

Excellent item

It complies with standard manufacturing product.

Great signal reception

I’m using this as a replacement for a tiny strip antenna on my Adafruit FONA 808. My RSSI jumped and now I can put my device in my basement and still get signal.
