Re: Lightening arresters

Hello, No the tower itself is not grounded to a ground rod. The tower is in the ground though. Think you are saying that isn't enough? Think you are telling me to put in a ground rod and ground the antenna tower to that ground rod? Then once that is done can ground the lightening arresters right to...

Re: Lightening arresters

Hello have another question about grounding. Have a old school tower antenna tower. It is in a concrete footer over 3 feet in the ground. Does this mean that the lightening arresters could be grounded right to the antenna tower? Or do I need to put in a new ground rod for this? Is the tower itself ...

Re: Lightening arresters

Hello again. I looked into this. And yes says online says use arresters right before you go into the house. But I have 50 foot cables lmr 400 that go from antennas straight to router. So the only connection spot I have to add them is at the antenna connection. At the very top of the run. Is that ok...

Re: Whole Home Internet Solution?

My closet tower just has band 12 :( i hope they come soon to upgrade it. strange, the tower that Verizon is on near my house only had band 13 (the 700mhz frequency) which is very similar to band 12. They finally upgraded it about 3 months ago, it was so congested with only band 13 it was nearly wor...

Re: Whole Home Internet Solution?

Be aware that the z700a only has band 12 so theres no CA with it. If you can figure out what bands are at that att site you can get a modem to suit your needs and hopes of a better speed. AT&T pretty much has band 12, band 2, and band 30 deployed on nearly every tower then own. I would get a EM7565...

Re: MC7455 Carrier Aggregation

Can you recommend an external antenna? It really depends on your circumstances for space and location you have, but i'm currently running these and they work pretty well: https://ltefix.com/shop/antennas/4g-lte-antennas/yagi/698-2700mhz-yagi-radome-9dbi-11dbi-4g-lte-directional-antenna/ You'll need...

Re: MC7455 Carrier Aggregation

What gscheb said is exactly what I'd recommend. If you put outdoor antennas up, you'll get band 2 much stronger, and then likely get the speeds you want to achieve. It's also likely that band 2 is much less congested than band 12, so once you have outdoor external antennas you'll see much better per...
