|Connecting to a 4G cellular system in the 2.6 GHz band|
from a fixed indoor location with a square or rectangular
omnidirectional antenna about 5" square. The signal goes
through glass windows with aluminum frames, a wood wall
supported at intervals by thick reinforced concrete posts,
trees, more trees, and possibly more trees. Sometimes
the signal is strong: 5 bars. When it rains, and afterwards,
for a long time, days it seems, the signal goes down to
three or just two bars, at which point it becomes useless.
Recently it has been mostly at three bars, or only two, rain
or no rain. I suspect that it is because the trees have grown
a lot from all the rain.
Question: Would a highly directional yagi antenna designed
specifically for the 2.6 GHz band be likely to give significant
improvement over the omnidirectional antenna if the signal
still has to go through all that stuff?
