Hey guys, I hope someone can help me, my problem is this. I have a HCO UM-562 camera, the place I hunt is in a remote place but AT&T has limited service in the area. What is the best high gain antenna I can purchase for my camera. I have purchased two one being a cheaper 14.00 antenna from HCO and the other 29.00 for a covert cam for 29.00 with a ten foot cable. I mount my camera 15 ft in a tree and just need a high gain antenna to get me service on the cam. Help if you can thanks. Jeremy

i had some luck with a yagi directional antenna. im not sure buying the highest gain is best if you cannot get above the trees and hills. i bought one that was in the middle because i have alot pines that eat up the signal. the higher the gain the more narrower the signal is and can get intercepted. its like a tight focused flashlight. if you can find can find that right spot it will shine through farther and help.

Thanks for the reply, what kind of yagi did you get my hco 562 works on mhz 850, 900, 1800 and 1900. I was thinking about the one from HCO for like 100.00 but didn't know if a cheaper one was available. Please help me with some other models. Thanks Jeremy
