Re: Nube set up question

Hi Toddle,

i have checked what equipment you have bought & it looks like you have a small orbitor antenna for better performance i would recommend a larger antenna as small base loaded antennas only do a distance up to 5 to 10 miles while larger antennas can do a distance up to 20 to 30 miles :wink:
