Hello All, I'm thinking about adding this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300441519823 antenna to my micron SDA 214-1 splitter/amplifier setup. All of my wireless (Micron, Audio LTD) are in the CH69-70 frequency range. 1) is it okay that the antenna works up to 960 Mhz range? Will the micron SDA 214-1 amplify only the range that it works in? (833-865 Mhz) I wonder because all of the cellular towers start at 870 Mhz in Poland and use 900-960 band also. Would it be better to have a yagi that works within Ch69,70 only? 2) i am planning to use extender male SMA->N female panel connector cables to attach them to the bag (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300380267074?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/N-male-N-male-plug-pigtail-semi-rigid-cable-RG402-/300486126120?pt=UK_Computing_Boosters_Extenders_Antennas&hash=item45f65e6a28), so i can switch between coax dipoles and a higher gain antenna like the yagi above, as long as the connectors are ok, the loss at the connectors is neglible,right? Thanks for your attention, Bartosz
My friends and former neighbors at Vark Audio have developed some easy-to-travel yogi antennas specifically for us location folks. They look pretty good and Evan Mater, who designed and built them says they seem to perform pretty well, offering around 10 dB of gain. Here are a couple of cellphone shots I snapped of the prototype while I was visiting the Vark shop today: The longer section is right around a foot long, just for reference. Mounting is via 3/8" X 16 threads in the Delrin block, which you can sort of see in the picture. Evan says the mounting holes will be on the other side of that block in production units. Best regards, Jim
