Ultra Wideband Parabolic Grid Antenna
All Cellular 2G/3G/4G/LTE/5G, WiFi, Wi-Max, GPS, GOV, MIL, SDR
15dBi to 26dBi Gain
The Ultra Wide Band Cellular grid is the highest continuous gain antenna on the market. The patented, one of a kind design, allows for very high gain and directionality on all frequencies between 600MHz and 6500MHz.
This wide band parabolic grid antenna supports frequency ranges between 600 MHz and 6500 MHz. This includes current cellular bands for 3G and 4G as well as current and future planned 5G bands including T-Mobile Band 71 600 MHz, 3200 MHz to 4.2 MHz. It is very high gain and narrow beam, ideal for cell site selection or evasion for repeater systems.
The Parabolic Antenna also supports WiFi bands for 2.4GHz, 5 GHz and new 6.4 GHz WiFi Bands.
World Wide Cellular Bands
The Antenna also covers frequencies outside the North America - all world wide cellular bands including 600 Mhz-960 MHz, 1700 Mhz-2300 MHz and 2600-2750 MHz.
The antenna features a design into this antenna that allows for optimizing the lower or upper portions of the ultra wide bandwidth. Taking the position furthest away from the reflector will enhance the lower portion (600-960). Center position will enhance 1700-2300 and the closest position will boost 3-6.5GHz.
- 600-995 MHz Gain: 15 dBi
- 1700-2200 MHz Gain: 20 dBi
- 3000-6500 MHz Gain: 25 dBi
Continuous Gain & Radiation
Continuous gain & radiation, also known as instantaneous gain, means the antenna is always radiating at the intended frequency range it was designed for. This is beneficial for the installer since it will automatically work right out of the box on any device within the 600-6500 Mhz spectrum. No adjusting or calibration required and all the gain you can handle.
Not For Use In Good Signal Areas
Note: This antenna has a well defined signal area. It will only work when aimed correctly and the intended target. Do not use this antenna in a good signal area. This is an antenna specifically designed for weak signal rural locations. Professional installation is recommended.
Setting Up The Antenna
Here are a few tips for setting up the Wideband Parabolic Antenna
- Minimize Cable Length - Add cable only if it is required to get the antenna to a better signal
- Maximize Antenna Height - Taking into account cable length required
- Get Clear Line Of Site To your nearest service provider's tower
- Use 2 Grids For MiMo
- To Not Bend Connectors or Coil Cable
Aiming The Antenna
This antenna has a narrow signal beam. The Grid can only "see" within the signal pattern for a given frequency so it takes a bit of care to aim it efficiently.
Aim the antenna at the intended target. In most cases it will be a cellular tower which hosts your desired carrier's antennas. Locate the nearest service provider's tower that broadcasts your carrier's signal frequency range. If you are unsure which tower to use, a number of tower location apps by carrier and frequency are available.
weBoost app For Cellular Frequency Installation Help
If you are using this antenna for cellular frequencies, the weBoost App might be of help. It can give you a signal strength reading and direction of nearest service provider tower. Just load the android or Apple app on your mobile device. More weBoost App information.
Finding The Right Tower: The best way to see improvements in signal is with a spectrum analyzer. If one is not available, you will use a rough indication like the bars on your phone, hotspot or, use the speed tests on your device. As you aim better or worse, you will see the difference in your device. If possible, use a lower gain antenna with a larger spread to locate the general direction of the tower. You can also use websites like cellmapper.net (app is also available), antennasearch.com or cellreception.com to get a pretty good idea of tower locations.
Also, using your cell phone, read the signal on each side of the building. The strongest side usually indicates the direction of your nearest cell tower. Wait several minutes on each side when taking a reading
If not available, scan with the grid 2-4 degrees at a time to find the tower. Signal patterns varies depending on the frequency selection 6-20 degree towers must be within signal pattern to function correctly.
IMPORTANT - It may take a minute for a device to update the signal strength reading so wait a minute of two before changing the direction of aiming. Using the actual dBm readings on your device is more accurate and updates faster than using the number of bars on your device.
Optimize - Positioning Feedhorn
The grid's adjustable feature allows for increased gain in a desired frequency range. By positioning the feedhorn in or out along the predefined slots, you will increase gain by 2dB on either low or high band. Note that the inverse will occur for the band you are not optimizing; 1-2 dB gain will be lost on the other part of the spectrum.
