Quad-band Cellular Antenna SMA

This high gain, 7.75" antenna is perfect for AVL applications where cellular reception is a must. Connector is regular SMA so don't confuse it with 2.4GHz antennas.


  • GSM/850E : 824 to 894MHz
  • GSM : 880 to 960MHz
  • DCS : 1710 to 1880MHz
  • PCS : 1850 to 1990MHz

Quad-band Cellular Antenna SMA Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

    When will this be back in stock?

    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.


Perfect for the bladeRF and setting up small cell sites
