Paint An Antenna?

FAQ: Can You Paint An Antenna?

Q: The development where my customer lives requires that any antenna mounted on the outside of a house be a specific color so it will blend visually with the surrounding environment. So is it okay to paint a Wilson antenna?

A: Wilson antennas can be painted as long as the paint used does not contain metal. Have your customer check the paint he or she is planning to use to make sure it is metal-free. Metallic paints or polychromatic paints should never be used on an antenna because they contain tiny metal flakes that would disrupt the antenna’s signal transmission characteristics.
