Camping

 -

 Let's boost your coverage while camping or hiking.

 -

 To start, because you are outside when camping or hiking you will have no close-in 'clutter' loss (thick walls if inside a house, or steel roof in a caravan to overcome).  Because of this you will need a direct connection when camping or hiking.  This page describes the differences between direct and passive connections. To check whether your device has a direct connection go to our home page and use the left hand menu system.

Option 2 - Cellutronics AY15

If you are camping in one spot then it is worth carrying a larger directional antenna. Here we recommend our popular AY15 as it does all 3 operators in NZ (Spark, Vodafone and 2degrees, and even all operators overseas) and all their different frequency bands. This antenna is popular for campers as you can connect it up to say a Wifi hotspot (Eg Spark E587, Vodafone R208) and you and your family can enjoy streaming wireless internet around your campsite. Great if you need to keep in contact with the office over important emails, or if your kids need to use facebook, surf the net etc. Mount it yourself on a tripod, attach it to a tent pole, tree, whatever you like. Check out our AY15 used at a campsite at the edge of a volcano in Vanuatu here.
