Bolt Panel Antenna V.4

Updated on

If you're using the Bolt Panel Antenna V.4 with your Bolt 4K/Bolt 4K LT 1500 or MAX receiver, you must connect the five RP-SMA connectors from the receiver to the back of the antenna (see below for connector placement), and position the antenna so that the front (with the Teradek logo) has a clear line of sight to the transmitter.  

The Bolt Panel Antenna includes an omnidirectional antenna with a receive pattern that varies based on its distance from the transmitter. The horizontal receive angle measures 55° at 5,000 ft (1.5 km), 104° at 4,000 ft (1.25 km), and is effectively Omnidirectional at up to 500 ft (150 m). The vertical receive angle measures 20° at any distance. To maintain signal strength, you need to adjust the height of the receiver and/or the height of the transmitter accordingly so that there is no more than 20% obstruction.
