    Posted by Michael Crudele on

    Unfortunately, the FM2 will not work with the OD9 series antennas from Laird, however, the OD9 series ship with a dual U-bolt mounting system.

If you are willing to expand your antenna search beyond the OD9 series to all small antennas that work in the 900 MHz range, we have two recommendations found below.   ROSA-900-SNF: An RFMAX outdoor rated 900 MHZ omnidirectional stick antenna with N-Female connectors for IoT use in the US 902-928 MHz bands.

    We recently had a client reach out to us about a cellular antenna that he wanted to place on the side of his building.
