It has more range than the antenna onnidireccional, but being more directional everything that falls outside the 30, opening angle, is capable of being received almost surely.
Directional. They are fully directional antennas, necessitating a focus on highly accurate receiver. The opening angle is very small and critical, for these antennas to be necessary to use a program like Netstumbler for the correct orientation. The types of these antennas are frequently used dishes, yagui, spiral, etc … For safe installation are used to support different kinds, which can be purchased or.
