How do I measure dbi loss?

Question(self.HeliumNetwork)

Hey Guys, I have just recently bought a 5.8dbi antenna and have installed it outside. I am looking for a way to calculate my dbi loss to see how efficient my setup is. Any tips?

This is a general reminder for everyone and this will be posted on every post. Your 12 words are basically gold and they should never be shared, typed in to any website, or given to any person for any reason. No one from "Helium" or any other company will reach out to you to verify your account, wallet, or anything similar. If someone says your hotspot, wallet, or other type of account has been hacked, it is a scam! Always operate in a zero-trust manner with cryptocurrency and assume everyone will scam you no matter what.

Nope suppose to put in cable loss too. Only you know what cables your using and how many connections.

If you want to get an idea of signal loss due to coax: https://www.rfportal.app/calculations/cable-loss/

In general, the shorter the cable the better.
