The Wittenberg LAT 58 LOG Antennae on Amazon Germany are the equivalent and should work well also, however, they are more expensive.  If you only get band 20 in your area, the LAT22 pair are very sensitive on band 20.  LOG antennae need to be spaced around 60-100cm apart, so you will either need a tall pole or a cross-pipe clamp and steel pipe to mount them side-by-side.  These are not included with the antennae.

Personally I would avoid the TP-Link 4G routers when using LOGs.  From what I'm aware of, TP-Link routers do not provide RSRP or SINR read-outs, which makes it tricky to properly aim the LOGs. For example, you could swing the antennae across a 30 degree arc without affecting the signal strength reading, yet have a massive difference in performance due to fluctuations in the signal to interference and noise ratio (missing SINR reading). Both the MR200 and AC750 are not 4G+ capable either. 

If the Chateau LTE12 is too expensive, I suggest going for either the Huawei B535 or B818 instead.  The B535 which costs just a little more than those TP-Links is 4G+ capable (2 carriers) and provides RSRP and SINR readouts (including via mobile App).

Hi Sean, 

So the chateau is a serious piece of kit.  Fired it up today with interesting results.

I have a previous recommended log antenna at gable end, 10m coax x 2 to tplink archer mr200 on underside of attic door. I've been achieving 50mbps on the tplink since march or April, good result.  Pic of antenna below.

I'm pointed at 60° to Meteor LTE KE_4679 in Moyvalley Kildare. Chateau was unable to connect to KE_4679 using log antenna. It kept connecting on OY_4215 Edenderry. As soon as I reconnected tplink I was again achieving 50mbps on KE_4679. I confirmed this on the EIR MME.

I disconnected the log antenna and inserted the 2 paddle antennas on the chateau and went to 2 upstairs Windows either side of log antenna and had no problem connecting to KE_4679.

I could see the CA on band3 and band20, link above.
I achieved 50mbps and it did hit mid 60s at times.  Any idea why the log antenna connected to chateau won't connect to 4679? It is 6.7km away. Paddle antennas on chateau have no issue to 4679.

The ISKRA P58 LOG is in the post.

Interesting point, before CA kicked in on chateau I was only getting approx 9 - 11 Mbps. I think the tplink mr200 behaves the same way. Takes a few seconds then the speeds ramp up significantly. 

Any thoughts on the above?

Thanks again.
