I would like to run one of my connectorized ePMP 1000 2.4 GHz radios as a hotspot outdoors.
What low-gain antennas are recommended for this application? I want to be sure they seal appropriately so the radio is not damaged as a result of inclement weather.
I'm considering the RF Elements OARDSBX244 (2.4 GHz, 4dBi gain, outdoor) antennas, but I am not sure whether they have a seal inside the RP-SMA connector (They appear to have an O-ring at the base, but that would not fully seal against the ePMP RP-SMA connector due to the slots).
our Cambium outdoor IP55 low-gain omni-directional 2.4GHz antenna is a great choice for your application. Our antenna is tested to IP55 and it includes an O-ring for improved seal between it and the RPSMA connector.
