The SC-231W Yagi Outdoor Antenna is a directional antenna with up to 10 dBi of gain across all wireless frequencies (Voice/3G/4G/AWS/WLAN). It’s very powerful at picking up weak signal in one particular direction.
The SC-231W antenna measures 19.1" L x 8.8" W x 3.4" H and offers 7dB/8dB/10dBi of gain. This is a 75 ohm antenna, for use with 75 ohm signal booster kits like the SureCall Fusion4Home. A 50 ohm version, the SureCall SC-230W Outdoor Yagi Antenna, is also available.
It needs to be set up pointing in the direction of the cell tower, and because it is directional it will only pick up signal in that direction. We recommend it for situations where existing outside signal is weak, and you only want to boost coverage for one carrier (or if more than one carrier has a cell tower in that direction). If you need to boost signal coming from different directions, it is possible to set up more than one yagi antenna. Contact us for more help with this.
Directional antennas must be mounted horizontally and be aimed at the desired cellular tower for best results. Any metallic rods must be at least three feet from the antenna. The antenna comes with mounting equipment to attach to a 1 to 2 inch diameter pole (not included, available separately). For best results, the white fiberglass portion of the antenna should be mounted above the roof line and unobstructed in the direction of the tower.
