If you already own a long range Wi-Fi adapter with RP-SMA antenna port and are looking for an outdoor antenna and extension cable, you can save some money by getting our 16 dBi gain outdoor directional Yagi antenna and 5m (16 feet) of CFD-200 shielded RP-SMA antenna extension cable together for one low price. This package deal includes (1x) 16 dBi gain outdoor directional yagi antenna with 16 elements, and (1x) 16-foot CFD-200 shielded antenna extension cable to go between your Wi-Fi adapter and the antenna. Here are some more details about each item. You can click the boldface titles below be taken to the individual product page for each item in case you need to purchase one of the items individually.
16 dBi outdoor Wi-Fi yagi directional antenna:
This is a 16 unit directional yagi antenna with RP-SMA antenna connector. It comes with mounting equipment and is 23 inches long. This antenna is ideal for outdoor mounting. Directional antennas concentrate gain in one particular direction and can do a better job at piercing obstacles in a particular direction, providing you with better distance and signal. Note that the antenna should be mounted in an outward direction so the length of the antenna is parallel to the ground. You do not want to have the antenna pointing directly upward or downward, as that will negatively impact performance. Because of the way these antennas are designed, we do not recommend using them indoors. The yagi antenna should have some open area between it and the very first obstacle between the antenna and the source AP. If you place the yagi right up against an obstacle, that will also negatively impact performance. A trial-and-error process may be necessary to determine the optimal location and position.
5m (16') CFD-200 RP-SMA male to RP-SMA female antenna extension cable:
This is a low-loss RP-SMA male to RP-SMA female extension cable with CFD-200 shielding. The cable is 5m long (~16 feet) and has an RP-SMA male connector on one end (which is used to connect to devices such as PCI and USB wireless adapters that have RP-SMA antenna ports on them) and a RP-SMA female connector on the other end (this would be the end to which you would connect an RP-SMA antenna). We recommend this extension cable compared to some others online because this has a special low-loss cable. What does this mean? The antenna to which you will connect this has a gain. Let's say for example you will be connecting this to a 9 dBi gain antenna. As the cable in between the antenna and adapter gets longer, you will experience cable loss, which is a drop in the signal gain of the antenna. With low quality extension cables, the huge drop in gain will mean a much lesser range.
State sales tax of 6.5% will be added to FLORIDA purchases only. There is no sales tax for any other state.
