Howdy, friends. The Cowboy 5G is an all-purpose dome, broadcasting its signal in a 360-degree radius. It’ll get those signal problems sorted out in a jiffy.
The Cowboy 5G kinda looks like a cowboy hat, hence the name. It gets the silly sounding “5G” at the end because it can handle T-Mobile's 5G network. You might see it hanging from a ceiling in an office somewhere, its most common use case. These are ceiling-mounted and particularly suited for drop-tile ceilings.
Therefore, The Cowboy 5G is a great option for wide-open rooms and office spaces, but can be installed anywhere, including hallways and small rooms.
The Cowboy is an ultra-high quality dome antenna for broadcasting cellular signal and is the ideal accessory for your 50-ohm cell phone signal booster system, providing boost gain at the end point by up to 5.1 dB.
The Cowboy dome antenna works with all cell phone signal boosters (weBoost, SureCall, Cel-Fi, etc.), and cellular hotspot boosters (Pepwave, MoFi, Netgear Nighthawk, etc).
You have questions. We have answers.
The Cowboy 5G is an omnidirectional dome antenna meant to be placed on a ceiling. The Cowboy 5G is a Low-PIM, wideband indoor antenna with low return loss and very stable performance designed to take your cellular booster system to the next level. It has several advantages over its cousin, The Board panel antenna.
First, it broadcasts in every direction, ensuring everything in its range is covered. Second, its placement on a low or drop ceiling means it will work in large, wide-open rooms very well. It is somewhat harder to install than the Board, but it is even more discreet and wide ranging.
Bear in mind that The Cowboy 5G is a 50 Ohm antenna with an N-Female termination, meaning it works best with 50 Ohm cable and N-Male termination.
Indoor antennas effectively expand your antenna coverage, so buying more with a powerful system makes a lot of sense. The specific number is something you’ll need to figure out yourself – but here are some relevant questions to ask:
- Is my outside signal weak? Weak outdoor signal makes it harder to add more antennas to a system.
- Where do I most need enhanced cellular? Is it more than one place? Are these places near each other? If yes, getting another antenna is a no-brainer.
The Cowboy 5G broadcasts any signal between the 617-6000 MHz bandwidths. That includes all 4G/LTE/3G/2G cellular signal, as well as T-Mobile 5G. This covers all North American carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and more) and most international carriers, as well.
However, all this is dependent on what your donor antenna(s) is capturing. While The Cowboy 5G does increase gain at point of broadcast, it cannot create high-quality or strong signal on its own. If you’re only capturing one or two bandwidths, those are what The Cowboy 5G will broadcast.
dB refers to the power gain of the antenna, and the higher the number, the more powerful the antenna. As dB is measured on a logarithmic scale, every +3 dB represents a doubling of the power gain.
The Cowboy 5G will work on any US or Canadian carrier, as well as most cellular carriers worldwide. If you are not sure your country’s carrier will work with The Cowboy 5G, verify whether your service falls within the 617-6000 MHz bandwidth, and if so, it will work.
