(Get Your) Legs Down
Independent product review by Richard Easy at (Get Your) Legs down.
'There is the option of using the router on it’s own with it’s supplied antennae, but for me - as with the WiFi kit - its having the antennae outside your unit that makes the difference. The more rural the site and/or the weaker the mobile signal and this will come into it’s own even more. As someone who is looking to spend more time on CL’s this year - not least because of cost - I feel sure this kit will prove it’s worth even more.'

Article - Antenna Choices for your Vehicle, by Louise Barrett
The Solwise antenna range has traditionally contained antennas that have been mounted on a pole or on a wall/building/portable building but in more recent times we are seeing more antennas used on vehicles. These include a wide range of vehicles such as cars, buses, lorries, caravans, motorhomes, boats, barges and even a space agency, an F1 team, mountain rescue teams and a defence contractor have all bought antenna hardware from us so who knows where some vehicle antenna have ended up!
Across our range we offer permanent and temporary solutions for antennas to mount on your vehicle; these antennas cover WiFi solutions and Mobile Data Solutions which means we have something for most situations.
