2XPAN-6996-15 is a heavy duty 2x2 MIMO antenna covering 4G LTE and 5G NR lower cellular bands with very high gain, very high front-to-back ratio, and low VSWR.
Originally our HB Radiofrequency team commissioned this design for a US defence EW project. However with a 15 dBi peak gain across the entire band it serves as a exceptional long range 700 MHz 4G LTE user antenna. Capable of falling back on both 3G 850 MHz for Telstra, and 3G 900 MHz for Optus and Vodafone, this high performance antenna ensures connectivity regardless of network coverage type.
The antenna has two 4.3-10 female flange connectors, providing IP67 weatherproof feeder cable connectivity.
In the field this antenna is extraordinarily powerful. Typically we find installing the antenna anywhere with 700 MHz 4G (4GX) coverage nearby produces a dramatic increase in signal strength. With a 45° main lobe (azimuth) the antenna requires minimal alignment. With dual-slant polarisation and its wide beam able to capture a high level of multipath achieving RI-2 is effortless.
Like all high gain antenna it is important to disconnect this antenna during handling and installation. This product may generate EME that exceeds ARPANSA safety limits within 300 mm of the antenna mainlobe.

3D radiation patterns provide an intuitive view of how an antenna radiates in three dimensions. Unlike simulations, they are developed by taking 1656 measurements across three axes inside a certified laboratory faciity.
