6 dBi Low Profile N-Female Omni Outdoor 915 MHz Antenna for Helium RAK Miner Bobcat & Meshtastic
Rokland introduces our 6 dBi 915 MHz low profile 21.6" fiberglass antenna with an N-female connector and U-bolt bracket mount. This is certified and designed for outdoor environments and is weatherproof. Using less fiberglass, the antenna costs less to manufacture and ship, resulting in savings. Plus it has better wind resistance due to its smaller surface area.
This antenna is compatible with IoT devices that use the 915 Mhz frequency or 900-930 Mhz range. This includes US Meshtastic devices, and Helium miners like the RAK V2, Bobcat 300, Nebra Indoor, SenseCAP M1, Kerlink, Linxdot, Kerlink, FreedomFi & LongAP. If using with Helium it requires an RP-SMA male to N-male coaxial cable to fit, and we carry compatible coaxial cables. It also works with other Helium hotspots (such as Nebra Outdoor) but may need different cable connectors, please contact our sales staff if needed.
*If using with Meshtastic, you need an SMA cable which we don't currently carry, but you can use one of our RP-SMA connectors by adding this barrel converter.
- 6 dBi gain 915 MHz band antenna for LoRa and HaLow™ long-distance low data transfer industrial application (this is NOT a 2.4 or 5 GHz WiFi antenna).
- 35-degree vertical beamwidth, 360 degree horizontal, N-female connector. VSWR ≤ 2 with 6 dBi gain, 50-ohm impedance, max input power 50 W, made of Fiberglass, Copper, and Aluminum Alloy
- Low profile 21.6 inches height (650 mm)- low profile design using less fiberglass for lower protrusion (vs standard 31-inch tube height of RAK and Nebra OEM 5.8 dBi outdoor antennas). Learn more about antenna size and gain correlation
- Includes 2 U-bolts and mounting bracket as pictured, plus antenna. Does NOT include a pole to mount to as shown in the picture. Pole shown in images with the antenna mounted are just for demonstration purposes
- This is NOT a WiFi antenna or 4G cellular antenna, it is ONLY for 915 MHz sub 1 GHz HaLow or LoRa application, or other application this band.

Comparison vs. Bobcat factory antenna. This was done by one of our beta testers. Results won't be typical- in the right environment, you should see more hotspots and earn more HNT but much depends on how far you are from the nearest cluster, as well as your elevation. In some cases, if your factory antenna is already in a good location, it may give you better performance than a higher gain.
What is HaLow™?
Wi-Fi HaLow™ is "the designation for products incorporating IEEE 802.11ah technology, augments Wi-Fi by operating in spectrum below one gigahertz (GHz) to offer longer range and lower power connectivity. Wi-Fi HaLow meets the unique requirements for the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable a variety of use cases in industrial, agricultural, smart building, and smart city environments.
Wi-Fi HaLow enables the low power connectivity necessary for applications including sensor networks and wearables. Its range is longer than many other IoT technology options and it provides a more robust connection in challenging environments where the ability to penetrate walls or other barriers is an important consideration."
Optional Compatible Accessory:
This optional base allows you to use the antenna indoors if needed. We generally recommend outdoor placement of the antenna for best results. However if you are in a high rise apartment with no outdoor access, this magnet base would be usable with the antenna indoors.

Earnings went from .1-.2 to .3-.4 so I doubled my earnings plus a lil more. But it hasn't been a month yet just need time to tell. The 3bi I got is working well also.
I replaced my stock Finestra antenna with this 6 dBi antenna from Rokland. Also used the LMR400 from Rokland. The result - I started witnessing miners 10 kms away. Till then, the only other miner I witnessed was one from my own cell. I wish I had switched sooner. Great product and good build.
The antenna is great. Excellent quality and easy to get up and working. I'll have to wait until the Helium Network issues are resolved to see what changes it's made.
Love it works great . What else can I say 😆
My helium mining rewards are 2 - 3x better than the stock antenna. Highly recommend.
