Ant-17 angling

What is the best way to angle this model. Is there any built in tilt or should i just aim the antenna at the area i want covered. (an outdoor field)

Re: Ant-17 angling

Hi rhtabor

 

Yes, ant 17 has built in electrical downtilt and typically would be mounted flat against a wall or pole, horizontally positioned relative to the ground without mechanical downtilt.

 

However, please be aware that whilst the ant-17 is a sectorised antenna, as with most of the Aruba wide beamwidth sector antennas it doesn't have much additional main lobe gain, it's intent is to reduce side lobe coverage to allow for reuse etc.
