    Your antenna is only as good as your cable.Some of the chinese yagi ones are ok as long as you replace the cable, just buy some lmr-200 /1700 lmr-200 being the cheapest lmd-1700 the most expensive.

    The NHA is a weak card to begin with since they are only 650mW. I had one directly connected to a 14dbi panel and I could barely connect to my neighbor. My 8187L is way stronger so if you really need to connect to something far away you my need a different card.

    i dont have that issue i pick up 20% with a 7dbi with the thing from about 1 mi away i would guess maybe more
    but not enough to send or get a true signal :wtf:

    so i need a better antenna other wise my alpha works great i pick stuff up many blocks away in town with a good 40% + in the middle of no where i get less but everything is 1mi + away
