Best Omnidirectional Antenna for B25/B26?

Post by Cheburashka » Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:03 am

I am currently using two Proxicast whip antennas but they are pretty mediocre.

I do not have line of sight to the tower, so this is why an omnidirectional antenna would work well. I prefer to keep it inside the house but I can also just put an outdoor antenna inside as well. I need Band 26 & 25.

What is recommended?

Proper antenna selection depends on a number of factors. And, unfortunately, there is no single solution that works in all situations.

Options for antenna placement can often dictate antenna selection. And, optimal antenna placement can often be trial and error.

We had one creative customer who built a small two foot shelf and installed two of THESE Omni antennas under the shelf. He then installed his router on the top of the shelf. After trying various locations he ended up mounting the shelf directly above a window frame with the antennas in front of the glass.

There is no reason this concept could not work for most any omni (or directional) antenna. It would sure save on running lengths of low loss cables.
