How Ernst increased his earnings:
Ernst Coetzee, one of our RF Engineers, shared his results with us. He compared the following 3 scenarios at his house in Pretoria, South Africa:
- The miner on the windowsill at his house using the antenna that is supplied with the miner.
- The Poynting OMNI-300 Helium Antenna on the roof of his house using an L Bracket
- The same OMNI-300 moved onto a 2 m pole on his roof.
He looked at the distance to the furthest node and the number of witnesses that he could connect to, as this will give you the best opportunity to increase your earnings.
In the results below, you will see that the witnesses increased from 4 to a maximum of 20 and the distance to the furthest node was increased from 2.9 to 13 to 34 km. Ernst also mentioned that his earnings increased from a third of the network average to DOUBLE the network average with the antenna on the pole.
