    Best Antenna for Nighthawk

    Hello HoFo!

    I have a Nighthawk in my parent's house that typically gets 2 bars of service and like 15Mbps down at home for them.
    I was hoping to purchase an external antenna (or two) that would improve the connection. Has anyone had good luck with an antenna?
    I've seen many mixed results online and figured y'all may know.

    Thanks!

    I bought this one and can't tell that it did any good at all. Signal no stronger, speeds no better, wifi no stronger.

    Have you surveyed?

    Where is the cell tower?

    Do you have a LoS?

    Would a directional or omni antenna be better for your location?

    I would look at Poynting's offerings, particularly the MIMO outdoor antenna. Run it with a short run of LMR 400. Consider proper grounding/lightening protection too.

    Cell tower is 2 miles away almost due north. I don't have LOS, trees get in the way almost the whole way.
