Can't find where to screw-on the Cellv1.0 antenna

Postby jerrywrice » Fri Jan 02, 2015 5:54 pm

I've just received my CELLv1.0 and SparkEE daughter board after waiting multiple weeks. The external antenna which was included has a screw-on threaded brass connector (~ 3/8" diameter). I can't find anywhere on the shield, CELLv1.0 module, or my Raspberry Pi+ module to attach (screw on) the antenna. I might be going blind, but ???

Sorry for the wait - I'm assuming that was an RS Components buy? Was it an ok process otherwise?

For the antenna, you're not blind, check out this picture from the SparqEE website:

The screw-on connector is an SMA and the CELLv1.0 side is a W.FL - so you have to attach the jumper cable between the CELLv1.0 and the SMA plug. All the boxes should come with one.

Thanks, got it. And yes the delay was on the RS Components side ...

I need help. The wire to my cellv1.0 is broken. I accidentally pulled it out of the W.FL socket. Is this the correct replacement?

Sorry to trouble you again. But that shipping cost for that website is too expensive. Will this cable do?

No. You need a W.FL aka IPEX3 connector on the CELLv1.0 side. Try mouser if you don't like digikey, or even amazon if you have a $30 order or prime would be free shipping..
