LMR HELIUM ASSEMBLIES
Low Loss Helium Interconnect
Previously Hotspot devices in Europe had a higher Power Output rating. Now that there is a new restriction on output power in Europe, it has never been more important to use LMR-240 Cable assemblies as the perfect low loss interconnect.
Previously, “RG” type coaxial Cables were used between the Helium Devices and antennas. RG cables are now a very undesired option due to their very high loss characteristics – combined with their ability to increase their Attenuation over time – directly resulting in degraded Hotspot range and coverage
Coax cables should never be bent to a 90 degree, fully straight or a slight curve should always be maintained.
I would remove that cable tie and relax the 90. Also, sma connectors are not really outdoor rated. I would wrap all the connector adaptor junctions (N, sma, etc)in silicone tape.
- Upgrading my hotspot antenna to 8bdi do i need to change any settings in the hotspot ?
When you settle on an antenna you can update the info in the app.
