JEFA WiFi Outdoor Omni Antenna

I am considering installing a WiFi antenna on the outside of my coach and I am looking at this:

JEFA Tech: Long Range WiFi Repeater Kit for RVs

Has anyone out there used this? I'm looking for mounting and cable routing tips.

Thanks

WiFi Antenna

I bought the "RadioLabs Inc." WiFi antenna and can't believe all the sites it pulls in. I've even logged on to a restaurant's WiFi from 1/4 mile away. It's unreal how well the antenna works. It's about 9' square and 1" thick with several different mounts on the back and comes with a mount for a pole. We just put it in the front window, plug in the USB to the computer and watch all the different WiFis come online. It is directional, so you may need to turn it to get the best signals.
It comes with about 15' of wire and a USB plug. I paid $119.95 for it and $17 shipping.
Great antenna for a boat at a marina or anywhere NEAR a marina or RVs in State or Fed parks that only have WiFi at the office. Picks up everyone's hotspot too.
The antenna is a "02CONN High Power Directional USB Panel"

This is what I just purchased. Alfa WiFi Camp Pro -- long range Wi-Fi repeater kit -- R36/Tube-(U)N/A

I'm going to mount it to my TV antenna to give it some height over the other campers but foldable with the tv antenna. I hooked it up at my home and it pulled in at least a dozen more local wifi networks than I can see with my home Linksys setup. Time will tell if it is worth the $100.

I have the ALFA kit that I bought through TechnoRV. FANTASTIC. Highly recommended for getting WiFi from restaurants, libraries, camp buildings, etc.

I bought the JEFA Tech. I mounted it to my ladder, ran the cable under my Coach into the front window to the repeater. That was the only place I had an outlet near an opening. I will probably figure something better in the future. It provides you your own secure network. It will only be as fast as the RV Resorts Wi-Fi. It definitely boosted our signal.

Please keep us informed. I am very interested in this product and if it works?
