As Jon said, a MIMO (Multiple In Multiple Out) antenna set is a good choice if your hotspot or router supports it. I use an aimable dual Yagi set that has equaled or out performed our previous $600 amplifier/repeater everywhere we've been with it at less than one-third the cost. My set is mounted just above our Winegard "batwing" TV antenna.

Hey Dutch.... could you please post a picture of the rear of your batwing antenna? I have my yagi's, just need to see the best way to build a bracket for them. I have to build a bracket that will allow the antenna to go up and down, but I haven't worked that out yet. Thanks


Here's a couple of shots of the back and the roughed out bracket. The red arrows on the antennas were just temporary to indicate the top so a condensation vent was at the bottom. The bracket was cut from a piece of 1/4" thick scrap aluminum. The two larger holes were already in the scrap piece, and were not used. The antenna mounts themselves are just the 'L' brackets that came with the antennas hammered flat. The antennas maintain the same orientation when lowered the same as the batwing.

This is really great. Thanks!


4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.

My son lives in the state of Washington on the east side. He needs internet to earn a living but where he lives internet is very weak. So he and his father in law subscribed to "Star Link", he is very pleased and the signal is as good as it gets. The equipment costs around $500 I do not know what or if there is a monthly premium. Anyway, Star link can only get better as Elon Musk is sending up satellites almost daily to cover the entire off grid world. Try it you might like it. Let me know how it works out if you decide to use it.

Starlink is $100 per month and not available everywhere - it is not available for mobile units, such as an RV. I have looked into it and it is not available where I live - limited number of people in each area.

My son has Starlink, and he is very satisfied with it. I’m not sure about the practicality of hauling it around.
