Even the best omnidirectional receiver antenna can’t match a good directional for range* and bounced signal rejection.** This right or left-hand circularly polarized directional 5.8GHz antenna has a forward gain of ~8dBi, a beamwidth of 60 degrees and superb front to back reception ratio (see beam plot below). It is easy to point it in the general direction of the transmitter and greatly reduce multipathing reflected signals from the rear and sides. Comes complete with 6″ flexible cable and SMA connector. Works well on Clearview Ground Stations with mounting supports. Ask for RHCP or LHCP when ordering.
* How much better range? On average, up to 1.8 times as far as a 3 dBi omni (Up to 2 times as far as a cloverleaf).
** Bounced signals are the primary cause of signal fades, dropouts and other multipathing effects. Rejecting these signals greatly enhances the quality of your reception.
Don’t Forget! Select polarization before adding to cart.
