New Optimised Performance Helium Network Antennas from McGill Microwave Systems Ltd
McGill Microwave Systems introduce the 9dBi High Performance Antennas for use with the Helium Network offering superior Power Transmission compared to other commercially available alternative non optimised VSWR Antenna designs.
The new 9 dBi Antenna design has been specifically tuned to operate with peak performance over only the frequency band of interest to UK/EU Helium Hotspot operators – the UK/EU 868 frequency band.
Most commercially available Helium Hotspot Antenna designs available today are designed to be universal – meaning that the one product has been designed to cover both the European EU868 and US915 Frequency bands – resulting in designs which may be non-optimised for either frequency range.
Antenna Connector: N Male
These optimised Antennas feature a superior VSWR performances of 1.5:1 absolute maximum – which immediately results in over +7% more transmitted, non-reflected Power from your Antenna and reduced Mis-match loss when compared to many of the commercially available 2:1 VSWR performance. According to etsi.org, this antenna may only be used to compensate for cable loss.
When I received the antenna I was surprised by how big it actual was, but I was even more surprised how well it was made!
After installing the McGill 9dBi on the same antenna mast I used before with my older antenna it doubled the witnesses (important for earnings).
I am streaming my McGill antenna setup (with some more interesting data) live to YouTube. If you are interested than have a look at see it yourself at https://youtube.com/iamnoel/live
I replaced my 10dBi antenna (unknown brand) with this antenna, and the results are very good.
