Operating on all 3G and 4G frequencies in Australia and abroad, this high grade antenna can be used in a range of residential, commercial, and industrial mobile broadband applications on any mobile network.

The Blackhawk Wideband Omni MIMO Antenna provides an ideal solution for 4G data applications where a high speed MIMO data connection is required. This antenna is typically used to provide a high speed 4G connection in areas where 4G signal is weak. The antenna has been designed with a moderate gain (2.5 to 4 dBi) provide a wide receiving beamwidth, making it the perfect choice for situations with lots of obstructions such as nearby buildings or trees.

Make no mistake this antenna is a finely engineered antenna providing V-V nominal 2X2 MIMO with good envelope and isolation characteristics, ensuring highest possible data speeds in its design class. The antenna remains compact and visually unobtrusive despite operating an extremely wide frequency range 700 to 2700 MHz, ensuring your connection remains compatible with the rollout of LTE-A Pro and 3C carrier aggregation technologies.

  1. It might be best in class but if it's over $150 it's also too exxy. There isn't a lot of hardware in these little units and gain is as per their size,. I could lose 2dB gain just in the 5M of LMR 240!
    • Thank you for your enquiry regarding the Blackhawk Omni MIMO Antennas. As you have stated, yes the antenna does cost over $150. These days you really do get what you pay for. These antennas have been designed specifically to pair with our Cel-Fi units and Altai Wifi Access Points to have the best outcome. In regards to the dBi loss with our LMR240 cable, our technicians have tested all our cabling and the dBi loss of 240 is at 0.2533 per meter, LMR400 is 0.13 dBi loss per meter. You could potentially be referring to a particular cable, I'm not sure. We generally move up to the LMR400 cable at 15m as the loss does become more and more significant. The incoming signal of any antenna also relies hugely on the output from the tower, distance and trigonometry between the tower and external antenna. We do have alternate antennas available that are also Omnidirectional but don't have MIMO capacity , I have linked these below found at our Australian distributor. https://www.powertec.com.au/blackhawk-omni-high-gain-698-2700-6dbi-antenna https://www.powertec.com.au/blackhawk-omni-antenna-824-2700mhz-5dbi Please don't hesitate to get in contact if you have any further questions.
  2. Hi Please advise if this antenna can be purchased with LMR400 cables instead? I am interested in buying antenna with 5m LMR400 cables instead of the standard LMR240 cables. Thank you Paul
    • Good Morning Paul Thank you for your enquiry. Yes, You can purchase these cables separately to the antenna.
