  • Fractal antenna for clear wimax modem

    I have a Clear modem and I am close to two towers. But
    still only get 2 or 3 lights at any given time. I plan on moving into the
    country this summer and the towers will be further away. So an amplification
    unit will be needed.
    I was talking to a friend about fractal antennas if they were made large
    enough how good would they be?

    Fractal antennas are typically useful for wide bandwidths and this typically
    means that they offer low gain. One such antenna is the log-periodic dipole
    array (LPDA) antenna here:

    Our most popular clear antenna is however not a fractal antenna and covers
    only the WiMax band 2.5-2.7GHz. This is the 18dBi panel:
    http://www.rfwel.com/shop/2.5-2.7GHz...l-Antenna.html.
    You can get this as part of an antenna kit here:
    http://www.rfwel.com/shop/4G-USB-Mod...tenna-Kit.html where you
    can select cable lengths, pigtail for your CPE/USB modem and lightning
    protection if required.

    Note that these are NOT "amplification units". There are currently no
    consumer amplifiers/repeaters for Clear WiMax. This means that you are
    limited in what these antennas can do. These antennas are NOT for extending
    coverage much above where the coverage zone ends. Rather these are for
    improving indoor coverage. So if your outdoor signal is quite strong but it
    gets weak indoors then these antennas will definitely help. If you cannot
    pick up a strong signal within several feet of the outdoor location where
    you could mount an antenna then it is unlikely that any antenna would help
    (not even our most powerful 24dBi grid antenna).

    Hope this helps and let me know if you have additional
    questions/clarifications.
