Mobile Antennas for CLEAR WiMax and NetZero4G Back In Stock

This popular antenna was out of stock temporarilly due to delays by our manufacturer, but that problem has been addressed, and received our shipment of mobile magnetic mount antennas yesterday.  Probably the only bright news we heard all day during the elections.

This antenna is 5db of gain, about 8 inches tall, with a strong magnetic mount base.  The coax cable is 12ft long, and we supply the proper adapter for your Apollo Clearspot, NetZero4G Hotspot, CLEAR 4G USB or NetZero4G USB modem.  It can also be used with the CLEAR Stick Atlas USB modem or several other models.  It has a frequency range of 2.3ghz-2.7ghz, so it’s right at home in the CLEAR 4G Wimax bands.   We do NOT recommend this antenna for the current crop of LTE modems, as they are NOT in the same frequency range as what is being used by WiMax at this time.  That may change in the summer of 2013, but for now, they won’t work as efficiently in the other frequency bands, and in fact, may damage your LTE modem.  We will not knowingly sell this antenna to someone running LTE.

These antennas are only $89.95 plus $10 shipping & handling.  Sales tax will be charged automatically for sales going to Texas residents only.

So if you’ve been waiting for us to get some more mobile antennas in stock, your wait is over!  Order them online at this website, or contact us via email at lee@wimaxsatx.com or call/text us at 210-771-7075 during normal business hours (we’re in the Central Time Zone).

Happy Year Of The Dragon! Now Get Back To Work! LOL

Inventory of  key components for the CLEARTM Apollo 4G ClearspotTM Antenna Kit, has been almost depleted due to higher than expected sales of this apparently very popular item.  But never fear!  We’re restocking as you read this, and should be back up to full levels by mid February at the latest.  Please contact us before ordering to confirm inventory levels.

Sales of this popular item had recently spiked, following our appearance at a local trade show a couple of weeks ago, causing us to get caught without sufficient inventory to fulfill new orders until after the two week Chinese Spring Festival / New Year has concluded and our suppliers have gotten back to work.

ClearlyWimax Releases New SOHO Outdoor Antenna for CLEAR 4G Wimax Users

Our R&D department has developed another outdoor antenna modification for the CLEAR 4G Home or Home Wi-Fi modems.    We call  it the SOHO model, but it only works with the Series-G or Home Wi-Fi model modems from CLEAR.

CLEAR has changed their line up of modems, by simplifying the number of home modems available, but there are still a lot of the Gemtek Series-G modems available new or refurbished from various dealer inventory.  In addition, the Home Wi-Fi modem is made also by Gemtek, appears to be similar to the Series-G but with the add-on Wi-Fi board.  Both are smaller in size (regarding motherboard size) which led us to try for a smaller footprint antenna that would work better in a deed restricted neighborhood, or any location where you wanted to be less obvious what you were hanging up outside.

The new SOHO Antenna Conversion model is about 8″x8″x1.5″ thick, compared with our Pro Antenna Conversion model which was about 12″x12″x3.5″ thick.   So the SOHO weighs less, has a much smaller wind load when mounted on a pole or location subject to high wind speeds.

External Antenna for the CLEAR 4G Apollo Hotspot Now Available

After months of painstaking R&D, WiMax San Antonio has developed an effective working external antenna solution for the newest Clearspot called the Apollo Hotspot.   

The Apollo model was released by CLEAR Wimax about 3 months ago, and boasts a 6 hour battery life and an LED display that is much more informative than it’s predecessor’s colored lights.

The Apollo 4G Clearspot is a square shaped hotspot, rather than oval shaped, and has antenna connectors on the bottom.  The only problem?  CLEAR doesn’t sell / provide any external antennas to take advantage of those connectors.  

So WiMax San Antonio’s R&D crew tackled the problem and came up with an affordable working solution.

We’re now providing buyers with a light weight (less than a pound) 10 dbi gain panel antenna, that is rated for outdoor use,  but small enough for indoor or semi-portable usage.   The cable connecting the antenna to the Apollo Clearspot hotspot is about 15′ feet in length, letting you place / mount the antenna near a window, or even outside, while keeping the (non-weatherproof) Apollo Clearspot safely indoors.

External CLEAR Wimax Modem / Antenna Solution

WiMax San Antonio is happy to announce that we are now in production mode for our External Antenna Solutions for CLEAR 4G Wimax Home / Business modems.  This is not a solution for mobile devices like their USB or Hotspots.  After 6 months of R&D (call that trial & error?), we have reached a workable solution that allows us to successfully convert any of the three existing home modems, Original 25150, Series-M & Series-G (not the new modem with Wi-Fi).

Our conversion of your CLEAR Wimax 4G indoor modem can be used indoors or outdoors.  The enclosure is rated up to 149 degrees (F) and down to minus 49 degrees (F), in all types of weather.   We’re using power over ethernet (POE) to power the modem and get the signal back down inside your house or building.   Just run up to 75-100′ of Cat 5e (or higher rating) ethernet cable from the modem to your router, using the POE adapters we supply, and you will be up and running on CLEAR very quickly. Some installations may need the use of outdoor rated Ethernet cabling, but we can help you get that as well.

Series-M, Series-G stock modems before conversion

We also have a second model coming soon, that will keep the modem indoors, while running a coax outside to a larger 16″ or even 24″ exterior antenna.  Just screw on the coax, run the coax outside (your decision on how to get it there), and connect to the antenna. 

We suggest limiting the coax length to 20′ due to line loss on this particular model.  If the coax is too long, you’ll lose much of the benefit of using this method.  if you are in the north side of the country where temperatures like to get really, really cold all the time, with lots of white stuff sticking around, this might be the solution for you.   Of course, like our first model, if you wanted to just hang the antenna inside your house or apartment facing the window or nearest tower, you will still see a big improvement in signal strength.
