We now have MOBILE Antennas for the CLEAR Apollo Clearspot modem & the 4G USB Modem (PXU1900) available for sale. These antennas are the ones we were testing for the past couple of weeks or so. Our tests (with the Apollo Clearspot sitting on the console between the driver and passenger seats in our mini-van) proved that mobile connectivity remained higher with the mobile antenna, than without it, as we drove around downtown and urban Houston & San Antonio, Texas.
The antenna can be used with either designated CLEAR device, by using the supplied pigtail adapter attached to the cable, or by removing the pigtail, used with the CLEAR Hub Express modem (assuming you have proper power supplied to the Hub Express in your vehicle). This antenna is designed for use with a ground plane (metal surface), so it won’t stick on fiberglass.
The mobile antenna is only 8″ tall, has a magnetic mount base that is about 2.25″ diameter, with 12′ of RG-58 cable and of course the correct pigtail adapter to fit either the the Apollo 4G WiMax Clearspot or the CLEAR 4G USB modem (PXU1900, not the just released USB Stick Atlas). The antenna had no problems staying on top of our van while driving 75-80 mph on the freeway for the 900+ miles we put on the van during the testing. Even during the thunderstorms with winds gusting 25-35 mph, plus the speed of the vehicle, the antenna stayed put on the roof without moving. Every antenna is tested by us, prior to shipping, to prevent DOA complaints. As a licensed ham radio operator, we’re very familiar with antennas & connectors.
The best location to mount this antenna is near the center of your roof. Be sure to wipe the surface of the roof, and the bottom side of the magnet, to prevent debris from being between the two surfaces. Don’t “scoot” the magnet around, or it may scratch the surface paint. Tilt the antenna by grabbing it near the base and tipping it over to break the magnetic seal. If that means placing it closer to the edge of your roof where you can reach it, then put it there instead.
We were able to negotiate a slight price decrease from our supplier for this batch, and further negotiations are underway, so this batch of antennas will be selling for $89.95, with FREE USPS Priority Mail shipping included (2-3 day avg delivery quoted by USPS, but our experience has been closer to the 2 day, unless you are in the east / west coastal areas). Texas sales tax will be added for orders with Texas shipping addresses only.
