Cloverleaf 5.8G antenna cover (compatible for 90 degree adaptor) by brianhomer Jul 1, 2013

Description

I bought a pair of cloverleaf 5.8G antennas from the shop and found the product itself with cover is more then double. Therefore, I made the pair of the covers for my antenna. Of course, you can make your own one with the following reference.

1) The link about cloverleaf for your reference.

2) If you want make your own cloverleaf antenna from scratch. the following tools is good for you to build one.

By the way, I browse a lot of on line stores and found their antenna rod some is short and some is long. Make sure if you use this covers, the rod from the leaf to SMA should has at least 3 inches then will be better.

Also, this size is only fit for 5.8G. 2.4G and 1.2G does not fit. Please note.

basically the frequency up to 5.8G,the shield does not affect any of the radiation indeed. But I didn't have the comparision so no figure can tellyou the truth.

Have you by chance measured the antenna VSWR with and without the radome to see if it changes drastically?
