RFI CDQ2197 3G Bullbar Antenna

  • Cutting edge printed circuit board design
  • Q-Fit removable whip technology
  • Widely used by government & emergency services
  • Supplied with 5m low loss coaxial cable, with female FME connector.

Trusted by government, the farming community, and industry professionals Australia wide, this antenna consistently demonstrates a high gain across all Australian mobile phone networks.

Typical Usage

As a rule of thumb: the higher the dBi, the flatter the angle the antenna can receive from. In hilly areas cell towers are usually located at the peak of the hill, and if you've got a very high gain antenna (like 9dBi) chances are the antenna won't have a tall enough angle to receive from the tower.
The CDQ2197's 7.5dBi gain is an excellent compromise between high/low gain, making it the ideal antenna if you live or work in remote areas - low enough to work when you're in town and travelling through hilly areas, but truly comes to life when out in remote and flat areas.

The secret to this extraordinary performance lies in the use of two unique PCB radiators. These meander circuits are coupled together to deliver extraordinary consistency in gain and pattern. This latest design offers coverage across multiple networks – ideal for the latest requirements where network operators can switch calls between bands.

With a 13mm stud mount on an heavy duty electropolished stainless steel spring, these antennas may be installed on a number of mounting brackets and are ideal for installations in commercial vehicles, four wheel drives and trucks. The CDQ2197's fully ground-independent design results in true 7.5dBi gain regardless of mounting position.


"Q-Fit™ removable whip system for fast and simple removal when entering low height areas, car washes or for antenna security." - read more on the RFI website. When travelling through different terrain, the removable antenna can be swapped over to a larger or smaller size and gain, ensuring the best performance in all geographic areas.
