mAP Lite positioning

Mon Oct 11, 2021 10:49 pm

Hi,

I know this is a stupid question but how should the mAP Lite sit?, vertically or horizontally?

Being an integrated omnidirectional antenna (2 chains), it will have a specific polarization and the "donut" will be more efficient horizontally or vertically.

Never noticed anything different either way.

Does it matter that much ?

Being so small, there is no real difference, as you won't be using it for big distances anyway.
