Re: Antenna mast build & grounds

At the top is fine, just be sure to weatherproof all threaded connections exposed to the elements really well. He was correct that the arresters do not stop static electricity. I'm unfamiliar how the proxicast antennas are constructed so can't comment about the ground shielding in the lmr400 protect...

Re: Antenna mast build & grounds

Hello, Thanks for the photos it helps. Need to ground mine as well. It is on a very similar antenna tower like what you have. The thing I don't understand about these set ups. Is it really necessary to ground a TV tower antenna that is literally in the ground? My tower is over 3 foot in the ground ...

Re: Cradlepoint CBA850LP6 and amplifi mesh network help

Your problem is the b12 being only 5 mhz. That's the lowest possible and why I only recommend modems with 3 CA such as the Em7565. But it also depends on what the tower offers. U may want to check cellmapper.net to see bands available.

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

Hello all, I just found this long thread about the wide band parabolic grid. I work at the design and fabrication shop and lab where it originated and can answer any questions. How can I help? Hello Raul, I've installed 2 of these at my own home and 2 at my parents place, both identical setups exce...

Re: Sierra Wireless EM7565 -- Flashing | Updating Firmware

I have Em7565 on a mini PCI-E to M.2 adapter to work with my wg3526. Is it possible to take my Em7565 already mounted on mini PCI-E to M.2 adapter and plug it straight into this USB to mini PCI-E adapter to upgrade the firmware?

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

B2(15mhz) with b66(10mhz)on 2nd and 3rd CA is what gives me the really high speed. Seems it only gives me this cell in mid afternoon or early morning when the network is not congested. When it switches cells on me it's just b66 alone. Speeds average 70/25 on just b66. I might play around with the ba...

Re: Antenna mast build & grounds

That's what mine have as well. Only non N is the router sma's. N connectors are the absolute best for our application since they have the best frequency range, lowest signal loss, and have excellent waterproof capabilities due to the sealing inside of the connector. I think these ground kits are int...

Re: Antenna mast build & grounds

Just finished up my final grounding today. Definitely overkill, but we get a lot of thunderstorms in my area. In my research static electricity builds up in the atmosphere during thunderstorms and that static build up degrades the gas charge in lightning arresters. So not only do these wick away sta...

Re: I returned the mofi router..

I too almost bought a mofi before reading the reviews about thier customer support on Amazon. So glad I found ltefix.com! For just a little more $$ I was able to build a WG3526 with Em7565 modem vs mofi's (imo outdated) pre-built router. Plus with ltefix.com you have an entire community of people he...

Re: 26 dBi ultra wide-band parabolic grid antenna

Well I popped open the router and checked connections. They were good. Booted up modem and it gave me b2 with same as before signals so I did a quick speed. Uggghhh I sooo wish it would leave me on this cell. SmartSelect_20190821-180600_Speedtest.jpg As soon as I switched over to grab screen shot of...
