We used this device on our boat when it was moored in a marina and therefore not subject to changing directions with the wind.
The Hawking Antenna is highly directional and has a 15db gain. to reach out and get a good capture of a shorebased WiFi source.
We mounted it on the side of the pilothouse or you can add railing adaptors and mount it to a lifeline stanchion or something.
You will need a USB extension amplified cable if you plan on working on your computer some distance from the antenna.
USB 2.0 Active Repeater Extension Cable: 5 meters / 16-ft: Chain up to 25 meters / 80 ft
(The best length is the 5 meter active extension cable - longer lengths are available but the line loss gets excessive even with the active amplifier in the cable.)
Type: High-Gain Antenna Frequency: 2.4 GHz Gain: 15 dB Impedance: 50 ohm Nominal Connectors: 1 x Reverse SMA
