Warranty and Support Information:
This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price! I was very impressed with the quality of the construction, and even more impressed with the range.
I've had similarly priced antennas perform half as well. I won't part with mine, and I am considering purchasing the 15dBi model!
The description on this website does not do this antenna justice.
It comes with complete high quality mounting hardware: two mounting brackets of what appear to be aluminium that will fit on a pole up to 2" (or so, don't trust my measurements, check with Netgate!).
Further, the antenna is mounted by first mounting an an aluminium sleeve to the mounting brackets, and then putting the RF cable through the sleeve, connecting the antenna to the cable, then sliding the antenna into the sleeve and securing it with a screw.
The end result is that you don't need to spend much (any?) effort waterproofing the connector, at least in the low rainfall areas we usually install in (southern CA).
As for coverage, we don't have enough field experience to say yet, but so far it seems at least as good as other 8dBi omnis we've deployed.
