We are looking for a dipole antenna since in our application, a 1/4 wave whip antenna has not sufficient performance.
We have ordered the part with typenumber: SREI038-IPP at Mouser and we will evaluate and test this antenna.
The issue I have is that the antenna is not omndirectional as per datasheet as that is probably an issue,
but we will test the performance in our application.
As reference we have tested with the RHD-771 (SMA-M) 1/2 lambda omnidirectional dipole from Retevis (37cm) and
with this antenna the performance is correct:
The problem is that we need an antenna with about 1/4 lambda (or smaller) to fit in our application.
Also we do not have room adding a groundplate at the base of the antenna.
Please let us know your further recomendations / possible alternate solutions.
Thanks and regards,
