RPi IC880a Gateway Antenna Port

#1

The IC880a board we are using for our gateway uses a u.fl connector for the LoRa antenna by default.


Since the board is prepared to solder a SMA plug I’d suggest doing that for our gateways:

The SMA connector costs about 0,20€, it can be done very quickly and the SMA connector is much better and stable than the u.fl. What do you think?

if there’s enough room in the housing - for sure it’s preferable …

fyi: we will get a few SMA 90° connectors so we have them available.

Thanks for the idea!

We now have 30 connectors available for testing/production - If you need one just let me know, or join one of our gateway workshops!
