#1

Who is the default carrier and what LTE band does it use in Northern California?

I have a Boron dev kit on order, and want to get a stronger LTE antenna for a remote sensing setup.

I’m planning on starting with the default carrier, Device Cloud and the onboard SIM chip.

Also, does anyone have a recommendation for an LTE antenna?

Thank you!

Welcome

and from the datasheet

Thank you! That tutorial had exactly what I was looking for.


#4

Do you know where I can find the max power the LTE antenna can pull? I don’t see it on the datasheet…


#5

5.00dBi peak gain for the antenna. (from the antenna page)
The SARA-R4 modem max transmit power is 23 dbm.

Thank you! Exactly what I was looking for
