  The 0 degree reference arrow corresponds to the 0 degree position in the antenna pattern file. Each antenna pattern file uses a top down orientation view (the patterns are viewed from the top of the antenna looking down).
Notes on cylinder brackets Mounting details
  • All CX* antennas come with the bottom mount bracket (marked as A ) factory-installed (all factory testing is done with bracket attached)
  • Hardware is included with each antenna to connect bottom bracket to different mounting systems.
  • JMA cylinder brackets are compatible with bottom mount via universal cantenna mount sleeve (marked as B ), sold separately
  • To mitigate potential risk of PIM issues, the recommended torque values need to be applied.
