Covered frequencies and bands.
Ultra wide-band antenna works with all carriers and frequencies in United States and Canada as well as virtually anywhere around the world. It works perfectly for boosting internet connection once you attach it to a working cellular or wifi modem. The long range cell phone signal antenna also works perfectly with all cellular signal boosters out there from HiBoost, SureCall, Cel-Fi, weBoost, and Wilson Electronics, among others.
All that is needed in the box.
Long range antenna comes in a packaging containing all that you need to put into work right away. Installation and assembling is super easy. You need to connect it to a cellular hotspot or cellular repeater/booster. Even so, a cell signal strength meter and cable are great to have.
Also works with Mofi 4500.
If you have a Mofi 4500, this ultra wide range mobile antenna comes in handy right away. It is a unique antenna and provides the best possible gain and perfect if you have been disappointed before by other types of similar antennas. It can easily pick up diverse carrier bands in United States, such as Band 12, 4 and 2 for T-Mobile users. Make the most of the Mofi to effectively make use of any of the supported bands as per the available signal strength appearing on the status page of the Mofi.
Cables and connection.
Essentially, it works with all cell phone signal boosters as far they are N-Female connectors. This means that all you require is a cable with N-Male as one of the connectors. For other cables you might have to pick the best according to exactly what you will be plugging into. For instance, devices such as Mofi have SMA-Female connectors inbuilt and the cable you end up using must be a perfect SMA-Male to fit.
Those intending to plug into devices such as Nighthawk M1 among other gadgets, all that is required are TS-9 connectors. It means an N-Male and SMA-Male configuration cable is okay. However, you might require a pigtail or adaptor SMA-Female to TS-9. This is important since TS-9 isn't a large connector and doesn't usually match with larger types of coaxial cables used to connect with the outdoor antenna.
For those who might have Quad Core RG6 cables for antenna up to 50 feet, it is worth noting that this antenna is a 50 Ohm type of antenna while the RG6 cables are generally for 75 Ohm devices. You could go for adapters that would make it possible to effectively use the antenna but the best results will depend on the particular device you intend to connect the antenna with, and how you end up configuring the system.
Antenna Key Characteristics.
It is perfect for boosting Wi-Fi and cellular signals, from 2G, 3G to 4G LTE and 5G. It doesn't matter what model of cell phone you're using; the long range antenna will work with it perfectly well, including all carriers globally, such as AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile for US users. The long antenna also supports all cell signal booster makes and brands, including HiBoost, Wilson Pro, Cel-Fi among others.
Highest possible gain is assured and much better than the most cellular signal antennas out there. It offers up to 26dB gain which is six times stronger than the typical Yagi antenna out there. With an adjustable feedhorn, it makes sure the gain can be boosted from any part of the spectrum as per your needs.
It is designed to last the longest possible time courtesy of an aluminum patented grid mesh capable of surviving the harshest possible elements such as unforgiving hurricane winds. Water that gets in the horn mostly dries up or drains out of the microscopic drain hole that is at the tip. Any residual water freezing inside of horn should not be of concern because material is strong enough to withstand expansion of small amount of water when it freezes.
Why is ultra wide band long range cellular antenna a superior product?
Exceptionally long range device.
For those living in some of the hardest terrains where the cellular signal is spotty, the cellular outdoor Ultra Gain 26dB antenna ensures that you can find cell towers that could even be 10 miles from your office or home. In contrast, most Yagi antennas have a 2-5 mile range only. It is so effective that dead zones will be easily turned around into areas with working cell signals while sections with poor to weak cellular coverage will have a reliable internet and voice quality.
Signal-Noise performance unequalled.
Ultra Wide Band Long Range Ultra-Gain 26 dB antenna comes in handy when it comes to enhancing the performance of any cell phone signal booster out there. In a situation where cellular towers are in competition and as a result cause so much noise, the antenna's directional attributes allow the device to connect directly with the proper cell tower you wish to access.
Directional field very narrow for best reception.
One of the reasons why this long range antenna is perfect for installers is its high gain uniqueness. When it comes to boosting virtually all the available carriers and one carrier or a number of them try to surpass the others, the antenna is designed to bypass any overwhelming tower and directly engage that particular carrier you intended to connect with but couldn’t. However, it must be pointed precisely to relevant tower using signal meter or spectrum analyzer. A smartphone in field test mode would do as well.
The long-range superior build quality of the ultra wide high gain parabolic grid antenna is designed in such a way that it protects the device against such debilitating elements as moderate-to-heavy tempests known to knock out antennas and damage their placement.
Adjustable feed-horn for maximizing Gain on specific frequencies.
This almost future-proof antenna covers continuous frequencies from 600 MHz to 6500 MHz or 6.5 GHz that includes cell and wifi bands. It offers huge optimal Gain up to 28 dBi. It can be customized for tuning further to specific frequencies you need for highest Gain on those frequencies. Adjustable knobs below antenna horn enable you to push the feed horn in, or pull it out depending on which band you want to optimize. For example, if you want higher Gain on bigger frequencies like lower LTE band, you would pull the feed-horn "out" and away from the metallic grid so it can reflect more on the metal grid dish. If you push the feedhorn "in" for smaller frequencies, it would optimize for most Gain on upper part of the spectrum meaning upper band frequencies. As default, the antenna horn setting is in the middle to provide average Gain throughout all frequencies.
Antenna feedhorn positioning on this antenna is adjustable. The brackets included enable you to adjust the feedhorn position mounting as needed. For using with a standard Single Input, Single Output (SISO) signal booster system like made by SureCall or WilsonPro, you would simply leave the feed horn horizontal to catch best signal. However, if you have a Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO) device that you're boosting signal for, cross polarized antennas are better in line with the cell towers and thus can almost double the bandwidth.
Therefore, for better throughput when using two of these antennas for a single MIMO device signal boost, you can adjust the feed horn on both antennas in a cross fashion. One slated to the left, and one slanted to the right. For example, one antenna feed horn blade going from NE to SW and other antenna feed horn blade going NW to SE. Two antennas with their horns positioned in this manner are called cross polarized antennas for maximum signal optimization on MIMO devices such as Netgear Nighthawk hotspot.
Cellular signal booster and directional antennas.
If you need a solar power cell phone signal booster, this is the next best thing. A solar powered cellular amplifier or repeater would provide higher Gain but at up to +26 dB Gain, this passive antenna with no electrical hook-ups is a great alternative.
Are you using a cell phone signal booster and directional antennas but unsure about the direction of the cell tower? Use a cell phone signal meter, spectrum analyzer, or your smart phone in test mode. Thereafter, using this antenna shouldn’t be an issue. Simply replace old inefficient antenna with this one and see the difference. You may need to focus the horn to point to the relevant cell tower more precisely for the best results. This antenna is really wide band and transmits and receives all manner of cellular bands out there. The antenna is also high gain and shouldn’t be a problem at all.
Please note that since this is a parabolic antenna with narrower focus range than other directional antennas, you have to directly aim it at a specific tower or direction and the resultant signal will be the best possible one. For best results, ensure you have mounted the antenna in such a way that it moves around horizontally on a vertical axis along 360 degrees so it can be adjusted precisely along a wide area. Once the antenna has been connected with the cellular signal booster and you are able to rotate it easily, go to your Smartphone and enter into Field Test Mode to examine the gain reading while carefully moving the antenna about.
As you continue testing various directions, one of them will have the best and highest possible signal. That way, you would have found the best possible tower and sweeping along the 360 degrees axis should point you towards the strongest possible one you need to aim at. After finding the best cell tower direction, adjust the antenna the best way possible to efficiently maximize on the gain as read from your cellular device and place the antenna firmly.

Questions & Answers
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I have a mofi 4500 and I use two sma male to n male. Then use splitter all n-female to connect both sided n-male cable to a n-female antenna correct?
You have the connections correct but you need one antenna for each port.
I have the Nighthawk M1. How would I go about hooking this antenna up with MIMO?
You need a TS-9 adapter that will accept the connector of the cable you choose (usually SMA male).
Are the pole and stand included? If so, what are the dimensions?
Sorry, no mounting of any kind included except the clamp to any standard 2-3 inches pole mount.
Does this use 1 cable or two? SMA or TS9?
The connector on the back of this antenna is a type N-Female. Therefore, you will need to have a cable with at least one connection as an N-Male so that it can connect to the N-Female on this antenna. Other side of the cable is up to you to pick and is determined by what you need to plug it into. A MOFI device for example has an SMA-FEMALE connector built on it so the cable end to match is an SMA-MALE. If you are plugging into a Nighthawk M1 or similar device then it needs a TS-9 connector. Therefore you can probably still go with the same cable configuration as the MOFI (N-Male to SMA MALE) but then also buy an adapter or pigtail that is SMA FEMALE to TS-9. You will need to do this because TS-9 is a small connector that does not normally fit on the larger coaxial cables used to connect to the antenna outside. Summary: Cable required is N-MALE to SMA MALE for a MOFI and most cellular modems. In case your device requires a TS-9 connector, use the same cable as above, and purchase an adapter or pigtail with SMA FEMALE TO TS-9 connectors.
Can this be used for boosting T-Mobile\'s band 71?
Yes, it covers that which is T-Mobile's 600 MHz frequency.
I have a wireless cellular modem. Will this work for it? I currently use 2 directional antennas.
Yes, it will. Yes, you can have two of these antennas feeding for example, a single MOFI4500 LTE modem. An AT&T cell tower that is about 12.5 miles away can yield 30 mb/s speed for wireless data, or more.
I\'m in a rural area and I just bought this antenna. I have at&t. What booster do I need to buy? Is there anything besides a booster that I need?
All cell phone signal booster kits certified by FCC already include an exterior antenna. If you're not satisfied with its performance, you can buy this antenna to switch out with antenna that came with your kit and you won't need anything else.
If you somehow have a signal booster that does not have exterior antenna and cabling in place, you will probably need a coax cable and several adapters to match to the connector on your booster or LTE modem.
What is approximate gain at 1.4 ghz?
+20 dB Gain.
What will I need to go with this to make it work?
Nothing if you're simply replacing your existing exterior 50 Ohm antenna within your cellular booster system. If not, and you're connecting it to a cellular booster, then you will need a coaxial cable with at least an N-Male on one side. For the other side, double check with the model you have but most boosters from Weboost, WilsonPro, Surecall, Cel-Fi & HiBoost have an N-Type female so your cable should be N-MALE on both ends.
Can you use splitter for the mofi 4500 for one antenna?
No but you can plug this into the main cellular port and leave the stock antenna on the other for good results.
Will I need a signal booster as well with the antenna, or does the antenna have a built in signal booster?
This antenna has no signal amplifier. This plugs into any signal booster or a cellular modem to improve its antenna signal reception performance.
My current directional antenna is picking up a little signal from 5 cell towers all miles away. Will this product allow focusing on just one tower?
Yes it will, as long as you are 100% dead on target, and antenna functions properly with proper tight connectors in place.
I'm going to buy 2 of these to pair with a mofi4500 mobile router. Correct me if I'm wrong, but LMR-400 cable is the best to buy?
LMR600 may be better but it may be an overkill.
Does this antenna require and come with a Grounding kit?
It does not come with a grounding kit, although it is a prudent thing to install. Another option to protect the system would be grounding kit plus lightning arrestor installed in line on the antenna cabling. In general, all outdoor mounts (including polls and towers) should be grounded. You can drive a standard rod next to your pole and connect the two with a copper wire.
Once that I connect this antenna, what equipment do I need to connect to bring the cell signal from 1 km to my home?
You will need a cable to connect it to a cellular booster/ repeater/ amplifier.
Would you tell me what connectors I need to use this on my m1 nighthawk?
A TS9 adapter will be needed to connect to coaxial cable with N connectors.
Will this work with a weBoost 75 ohm cell booster?
This outdoor antenna is rated for 50 ohms so its conversion to 75 ohm will cause loss of about 1-2dB which is fine given the amount of gain added by this antenna. It will also require a cable adapter because most of the Wilsons use an F connector because they have 75 ohm external antenna port.
Will this work with the AT&T device ZTE MF279?
Yes, but please double-check the connection requirements. You may need antenna port connector that fits cable to your ZTE MF-279.
Will it work with US Cellular?
Yes it works with all cellular carriers in U.S. and internationally as well.
What does a person use for inside the house to hook up to this?
Any antenna requires an Amplifier (BDA) to work. This would be inside the house. This is a tricky science and many folks do it wrong and get poor results. If nothing is coming from a distant site, nothing comes out of the amplifier. You will want to ensure that outside in an open area you have at least one bar on your phone (a very relative unscientific test). If not, the expectation for the antenna and Amplifier to work for you is pretty small.
Will this antenna work in mountain terrain where there's no line of sight to cell tower? I have a 50 ohm weboost that gets a usable lte signal in 700mhz range.
It truly depends on how far the nearest cell tower is. It can cut through dense forest only if cell tower is closer but unfortunately it is hard to predict how much closer it needs to be, because it greatly depends on foliage density. This is the reason we offer 60 days full satisfaction refund guarantee because you won't know for sure until you install it. You will for sure need to use some tool like signal meter to point it precisely in the tower's direction.
Will this antenna work with zboost boosters?
Yes, as long as the booster uses N type connectors for external antenna port, it will work with any booster brand.
Do you know its effective range in meters?
It is not easy to guess range. It depends on terrain, height and vegetation that may be between you and your favorite cell tower. Many have cell towers about 12km away from their home through heavy forest and they are very happy with the signal boost. An internet speed test would reveal downlink and uplink speed in Mbps. A better way to estimate performance would be to use a cell phone's signal strength meter in the position you intend to mount the antenna and expect 20dB increase in signal with the antenna properly aimed. If you wonder what 20dB signal increase is all about, simply move your cell phone closer to your cell tower until signal strength is 20dB better, then perform download tests etc.
I\'m going to buy LMR400 cable and I already own a mofi 4500. What connectors are needed to hook this up?
Make sure the cable has a SMA Male connector. Not SMA Male RP.
Will this work directly on the mofi4500 with the right adapters? Also will it work ok over RG-6 coax cable?
Yes and yes, you will have an impedence mismatch on the cable (50 ohm vs 75 ohm) and consequently lose about 1-2 dB for that reason but it still will work great as long as it is a short cable run.
What are the dimensions?
About 30 inches parabola end to end, perhaps 12 inches tall and with radiating element 12 inches deep. Light weight, easy to assemble and mount.
Will the MoFi 4500 work with just one antenna? If so, what is a recommended splitter?
Many have setup my Mofi4500 with just one or two of these antennas. These antennas are great and provide the best gain after trying a number of other log parabolic antennas. It picks up many T-Mobile bands including 2, 4, 12, etc. You can use the Mofi to lock to one of these bands based on the signal strength that the Mofi will report on the status page.
This antenna is all it needs to work out of the box or what else is required?
This out door antenna for better reception needs a cable and is then connected to an cellular booster/ repeater or a cellular hot spot. Depending on which equipment you have, you may need proper connector to connect the cable. For example, if you have MoFi LTE modem, it has SMA female port for cellular connection. Therefore you will need N-Female to SMA male connector which will connect your cable's N-Male adapter to the SMA female connector on the device. We carry cables and connectors of all types we simply use the search tool to find the right connector.
Does this work on all Verizon bands and frequencies? Does it require an electronic internal amp and / or booster? How to set up to receive Wifi or Verizon?
It does work on all frequencies and carriers globally. You will need to connect it to a cellular modem if you're using it for internet or a cellular booster from Wilson, Surecall, HiBoost or Cel-Fi for example.
What connector is needed to connect to Cel-Fi Go X system?
There's a SMA-Female connector on exterior antenna port of Nextivity Cel-Fi GO+ X or M base station.
Thus, SMA-Male connector is needed to connect to Cel-Fi GO signal amplifier base station.
Therefore, a cable with connectors N-Male to SMA-Male will be needed to connect this RF Boost long range antenna (or practically any 50 Ohm exterior antenna with F-Male connector).
What is the measurement/size of this antenna?
Dimensions when installed: 24 x 39 x 16 inches.
Dimensions when boxed: 20 x 25 x 4 inches.
Can I use this antenna in my RV?
Yes, maybe by mounting it on a tripod placed on RV - but only when parked, because not practical to keep it secured to stay put while in motion.
Do you do installations?
Yes, please submit installation service questionnaire so we can schedule site survey if necessary and provide equipment and/or installation quote. Thank you.
I live off the grid without power (only a intermittent generator). Is there a solar powered cell phone signal booster on the market? Would it work at night?
Sorry, we do not have a solar cell phone booster kit at this time. A passive antenna like this may help to some extent.
There's a hill between our house and the only cell tower. What antenna is best?
This RF Boost antenna is the most powerful. You may also want a powered signal amplifier such as SureCall Force 5 or Wilson Pro 70 to go with it to rev up amplification further to boost densification indoors.
Data Sheet / User Guide

Note: For any signal booster to help, outside signal strength must be at least -110 dB or there must be a clear line of sight to a cell tower that is within twenty miles of your home / building. Please check outside signal level in decibels before ordering. Square footage stated in signal booster listings is based on good signal outside. If it is any weaker, the boosted sq. ft. area will be considerably lower, accordingly.
If it is too weak, submit request for cell coverage solution assessment. Upon receipt of questionnaire, we will perform residential or business site survey. This will help us determine the system that is needed to improve cell coverage. Then, we will create system design using that system such as femtocell, active or hybrid distributed antenna system (DAS), or other carrier feed signal enhancing method available that will work at your signal-challenged location. Finally, we will schedule for installation after equipment and installation service quote has been approved by you, or your company.
Please note: Most home / office / building cell signal booster kits only include bracket to mount exterior antenna on outside wall, edge of roof, or existing pipe up to 2 inches in diameter. Mounting pole not included with most kits, unless stated specifically that it is included for free. Therefore, a mounting post must be purchased separately if you will require it to mount exterior antenna.
