Antenna Gain

Recommended Posts

Guest Havasu Desert Rat

I have an external antenna that a HAM friend of mine gave me. Haven't been able to use it yet as I have a Garmin Model 12.

 

The antenna is a Micro Pulse and has a 26Db on the label. Unless I'm mistaken, that's the gain of the antenna. I haven't seen any mention of Db for any of the other external antennas, or the internals for that matter. Is this information available, and if so, how do they compare?

Yes that is the gain of the antenna. That gain means, how much stronger the received signal is over a halfwave dipole. That antenna you have is quite small and the gain is achieved through electromic amplification of the signal after the precise frequency is filtered out. Not that you asked.... icon_smile.gif
