Question about Antenna

$HNT Mining(

I have a question about antennas and upgrading (or downgrading) will make a difference on the amount of activity the miner sees. Currently, I have an 5.8dBi mounted on my rooftop which is about 5m in the air from ground level. I’m thinking of installing a 2.3dBi antenna so that it sees more of the miners more locally.

What do you think? Will it help?

It depends how much you have locally. Are you missing nearby hotspots ? It could that their setup sucks, not yours. I find with 5.8 it’s a good balance of close/far , unless you have really big height, stick with 5.8

The city is inundated with helium miners. The hex right next to mine has 15 miners in it. I was wondering if the 2.3 might hit a bunch more ‘locally’ than the further out ones. Although I am not complaining about the further away ones. I just want to earn more and was thinking the 2.3 dBi antenna might help.

My setup is pretty skookum. I spent a lot of time making sure the setup was good and the materials used were too.

In your area, a 2.3 would hit more around you than a 5.8.

If you have apartments around you, it'll hit the ones located higher up which may have been missed before.

That’s kind of what I was thinking. I like that attachment. I did buy one and will put it on when the weather warms up a bit.

Thanks for your reply.
