Broken Antenna :( (United States)


#1

Hi There,

I recently broke one of the antennas on my Turris Omnia. I’m based in the US and I can’t seem to find the same antennas for sale.

Does anyone know where to find them in the US?

Thank you – the model number helped. I ended up finding it on NewEgg for relatively cheap:

Hi…You can keep using the antenna if you solder the tip piece back on, with the piece positioned in the “extended” position. The soldered antenna will not reduce the range. It may even be a teensy bit better because of the solid electrical contact between the two pieces. Trying to reassemble the two pieces together to maintain the original collapsibility is questionable without special tools/fixtures.
