HotspotRF has spent countless hours testing Helium antennas, tuned antennas, low loss cables, lightning arresters, and Helium miner placements. Using a HotspotRF Tuned Helium Antenna 8 dBi has shown to perform with a lower VSWR and greater performance than other name brand 8 dBi antennas.
Many name-brand antennas advertise a VSWR of 2 or below. A VSWR of 2 results in over 11.11% signal loss. The signal lost reflects into your Helium mining equipment rather than being transmitted. HotspotRF Tuned Helium Antennas perform with a VSWR of 1.4 or below. This results in less than 2.78% of your signal lost when using a HotspotRF Tuned Helium antenna rather than 11.11% when using an antenna with a VSWR of 2.
HotspotRF Antenna 8 dBi Performance
HotspotRF tuned antennas have witnessed other Helium miners over 100 km away. This high gain 8 dBi Helium antenna performs great in a variety of environments. An 8 dBi antenna is designed to perform with a clear line of sight but can still perform great in a city or suburb type of environment. Pairing your 8 dBi Helium Antenna with HotspotRF-400 low loss cables helps provide the most network coverage, and therefore $IoT out of your Helium miner and location. HotspotRF lightning arresters are highly recommended to protect your Helium mining equipment.
