    New guy here thanks for the membership. I have a question about these cell booster antennas I have. In the picture the small middle one is the one I bought and I know for sure it's a 700mhz 13 band for Verizon. What are the two larger ones on the ends? The one on the right has the same loop as the middle one but the gold one does not have the loop. Are the bigger ones more powerful and how do you know if they are the same MHz and band as the middle one or does it matter? I'm just wanting to put the best and most powerful system up. Thank you

    Lower right hand corner when posting you should see a box that says, "Upload a File".

    Yes that's a what I'm seeing, I select upload a file and it takes me to my file manager where I select the photo. It then takes me back to this page but it never loads the file. I'm on an Android phone

    So once again the middle one i know for sure is 700mhz band 13 for Verizon. the one on the right looks identical only larger and the gold one look like the other two except it doesn't have the loop. What are the outer two for and will one work and be more powerful? Thanks in advance

    I have very limited knowledge on RF antennas, but I'll tell you what I know, and I'm not sure how accurate it is.

    First, those antennas look like directional yagi antennas, and I'm not sure you are looking for a directional antenna.

    Second, Have you notice a lot of new TV antennas are square with out the poles. I would guess the poles are still there but are wrapped in the square.

    Third, I've installed a few cell phone amplifier antennas on the outside of rural office buildings. I didn't do any testing or tuning. The amplifier antennas were in a square box.

    That's about all I know. I hope it helps.

    I agree with you, the driven element loop appears the same size in both antennas middle and right. I think they are both on the same band.

    The right antenna will be more directional, and require more accurate pointing than the middle antenna. You should be able to see it receives more signal on any device with a signal strength meter.

    I don't see enough detail to say anything about the left antenna.
