I'm wanting setup RBI for a friend on a hilltop.

 

We've taken care of the logistics of getting power to the top of the hill but really want to use an RBI modem with an antenna.

 

None of the RBI suppliers we've spoken to are interested in a hilltop install, so we're limited to a self install which unfortunately doesn't include an antenna.

 

Does anyone have the brand and model number or the exact specs of the antenna? We're thinking the best option for us may be to get a self install kit and then buy/import the appropriate antenna ourselves.

 

Failing that, anyone know an RBI supplier who'll supply the external antenna as part of a self install kit?

 

Thanks

The usual 4G antenna is the ANT0627Y11. Just do a search for it. It is usually available in NZ but I couldn't find one when I needed it and bought it from Australia instead.

It could be that none of the RBI suppliers are interested is because they know the service won't be that flash. I take it there is mobile coverage on the hilltop. If this is a rural/remote hilltop I would think that there are no cells sites sectors facing it resulting in a list of issues. I am pretty sure Techs know/use site scrambling codes to know the site that a yagi is locked onto. A yagi just has to be slightly off to miss the closest cell and lock onto something another 10km away
