Info needed

Porsche Pilot, Can you please post pictures or explain exactly what you are using, where you had ETI put the access port? What are you using inside for a booster?

Has anyone used or considered the Uniant, also made by Wireng, makers of the BoatAnt? It's quite a bit taller at 26", but I'm considering it because it purports to be possibly the only such antenna specifically designed to create a dead spot directly below the antenna. This would allow for using a higher output booster without feedback issues, such as Weboost's 4G RV, which is a 3W transmitter intended for stationary use, thereby circumventing FCC limitations to 1W for mobile transmitters of this type. Interior antenna would require emplacement directly below exterior antenna, obviously. Thoughts?

Went with the short boat ant so I could leave it in place with the cover on.

I plan to use one of these to fold the antenna flat for storage. Or possibly during travel.

This looks like an option for us, as we're 50/50 currently on installing a roof for our Escape Vs getting a cover. Does this just install in place of the antenna, then the antenna is semi-permanently screwed on to it?

It’s an antenna base mount. A stainless pole screws to the base and then the antenna clamps to the pole. You can see it here with a UniAnt antenna. To the left is a non-adjustable mount, for comparison, affixed to the anemometer.

I had the plastic equivalent of this & had a difficult time finding a nut that fit the threads. I seems to be an oddball size. Don't know about the metal version...

I used this extension mast, made by the same company as the base: Shakespeare 4700-1 1' Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel Extension Mast https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0000AXRRO..._FPnzAbNZBAKKN

I think this is the one I have. I haven't used it enough to give an opinion, though. It tends to come unscrewed from its mount, so I keep it inside the trailer unless I need it. It probably needs an extra locknut of some type on its mount.
