Great rugged antenna! – 2.4GHz 100W 18dBi Directional High Gain 18-Unit Antenna for Wifi/Wireless Network (SMA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Rugged design and appears well sealed. Comes with good cable already attached and fits directly onto any wifi access point you may have. (This means it comes with RP-SMA, not SMA.) The supplied mounting-bracket has angle indications making it easy to install too.
Cons:
There really are none.
Other:
I tested this on a network analyser and it's well tuned for wifi. It detunes easily by touching close to the radiating element so make sure you mount it clear of any bushes or such that may touch it. Due to the design Yagi antennas are very easy to aim. Just sight down the pole.
Bottomline:
Great antenna, especially for it's pricepoint.
