10 dBi Rokland Backcountry Rural N-Male Omni Outdoor Helium 915 MHz Antenna 45" for RAK Nebra Bobcat SenseCAP M1 Hotspots


Pickup available at 2251 NW 41st Street

Usually ready in 1 hour

Introducing the Rokland Backcountry 10 dBi outdoor Helium & IoT 915 MHz 45" fiberglass antenna with N-male connector and U-bolt bracket mount. This is designed for very rural and remote locations and is not advisable for urban or suburban locations. With this very high gain, the signal can receive from a very long distance but at a very narrow path. It will miss hotspots within a few miles and is designed to connect remote miners and other IoT devices to the Helium network from an exceptionally long distance of 10 miles over open terrain, or more. Urban and suburban users should check our 8 dBi and 5.8 dBi options for better performance at non-rural distances. This is certified and designed for outdoor environments and is weatherproof. We do recommend RokTape to seal all outdoor connection points. 

This antenna is compatible with the RAK V2, Bobcat 300, Nebra Indoor, SenseCAP M1, Kerlink, Linxdot,, Helium Hotspot, Kerlink, FreedomFi & LongAP, but requires an RP-SMA male to N-female coaxial cable to fit, and we carry compatible coaxial cablesThis antenna also works with other Helium hotspots (such as the Nebra Outdoor) but may need different cable connectors, please contact our sales staff if needed.

What is HaLow™?
Wi-Fi HaLow™ is "the designation for products incorporating IEEE 802.11ah technology, augments Wi-Fi by operating in the 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."

Compatible with:
Bobcat 300
Nebra Indoor/Outdoor
SenseCAP M1

I'll be getting another one

Amazed at the reception and its not even installed, was just testing with it leaning against the outside wall about 8' off the ground and right away I was picking up LoRa packets from 20 miles away.
Also shipping was fast and well packed.

High gain AND low SWR

Follow up on my initial review- Rockland suggested that coax can affect readings on UHF antennas relative to SWR measurement with a NanoVNA. Thinking about that it occurred to me that the wavelengths at 906 mhz is very short and a coax jumper a few inches long could indeed be an even multiple of a wavelength and interact with the measurement. This morning I eliminated the coax and calibrated directly to the SMA connector. Sure enough the Rockland 10 dBi Rural antenna is 1:1.19 at 906 mhz so it is actually ideal for US-based Meshtastic users. Please disregard my previous comments. Thanks for the useful suggestion Rockland.

Worked great

Although this is for 'backcountry' I installed this in an urban environment. Works great picking up my node 2 miles away behind other large buildings.

Works as stated

I'm not an expert on antennas by a long shot. This antenna works as stated. Picks up longer range well, and very close things might not be picked up as well. So if you are more rural,might work well for you.


Entirely anecdotal as I do not have a VNA to do any more scientific review, but my receive range on my lora node increased significantly from about 1500ft to over 3 miles over other 2-4dbi antennas I had on-hand. Antenna seems well constructed and sturdy. Happy with my purchase.
