What are the water resistance characteristics of the long range rtk antenna and the sma connection. For instance if the thread came through a sealed hole and the antenna was attached outside.

The current LR antenna can be used under rain, but it’s not IP65. For a permanent outdoor installation, should be protected from weather conditions. We have seen that many of our customers are using simpleRTK2B for fixed outdoor installations, we are working on a kit upgrade to meet this needs. Stay tuned.
