0.6m | 2ft, Grid Parabolic Reflector Antenna, Dual-Polarized, 1.71 to 4.2 GHz

MPD2-1.7-NM, MPD2-1.7-NM

The RadioWaves MPD2-1.7-NM is a high performance LTE / CBRS Mesh Parabolic Dish antenna specifically designed for cellular networks. RadioWaves' MPD2-1.7-NM has 16 to 18 dBi gain and can be used to broadcast Cellular LTE signals. The MPD2-1.7-NM operates from 1710 to 4200 MHz which is ideal for 5G, LTE, PCS, UMTS, CBRS applications including LoRA, LTE-M, and NB-IOT. The Multi-Band design of the RadioWaves MPD2-1.7-NM antenna eliminates the need to purchase different antennas for each frequency. This simplifies installations since the same antenna can be used for a wide array of telecommunication applications where wide coverage is desired.

The MPD2-1.7-NM from RadioWaves has directional patterns with Dual Slant (±45°) polarization and features 2 x Type N Male connectors. The Type N connectorized MPD2-1.7-NM antenna from RadioWaves is designed specifically for outdoor operation and is ideal for point-to-point use in large open areas such as base station installations or cellular backhaul. The included mounting bracket and hardware makes this antenna very easy to install. This LTE / CBRS Mesh Parabolic Dish antenna just like our wide selection of superior quality RF parts, ship same day.
