How the 26″ RFI whip antenna works
- Receives outside signal from a cell phone tower and directs it to a cell phone signal booster.
- For use with commercial RVs, adventure vans, motorhomes, fifth-wheels, trailers, service vehicles, and pickup trucks. (May also be adapted for use with buildings.)
- Works with cell signal boosters with FME‑male connectors; easily adapted to SMA, SMB, or N connectors.
Optional add-on mounts for this antenna
The RFI 26″ antenna requires a sturdy mount with a 0.5–0.625″ (13–16 mm) hole. If you need a mount for your antenna, we offer five add‑on options:
- The 2½″ 3‑way mount secures to rails and brackets.
- The fold-down “bull bar” mount lays the antenna flat instantly with a spring‑loaded pin.
The MagMAX 3X magnet mount firmly attaches to steel roofs. (Currently on backorder.)
- The ladder-mounted SkyPole sets up in moments and extends to 12 feet for maximum antenna elevation and reception.
- The tow bar-mounted SkyPole for motorhomes without ladders attaches to a trailer hitch.

Do you need an adapter?
The RFI 26″ antenna has 16.4 feet of RG58 coax cable terminated with an FME‑female connector.
If your cell signal booster has FME‑male connectors (like the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 does), you do not need to adapt this antenna; it will connect to your booster natively.
You will need to add an optional adapter (above) if you plan to use this antenna with any of the following boosters:
