    Hi all

    My CQ-20 got rushed offstage at a venue the other night, and the WiFi antenna snapped. It looks like it’s a simple threaded router antenna, but does anyone know if I need to get a specific replacement? Manual doesn’t seem to have any info. thx

    No you just need one that has the same connector. However you may be able to get the exact one from A&H.

    I believe that the connector is RP-SMA but am willing to be corrected.

    Based on your experience, I have ordered a third party replacement antenna. It should arrive this week so I will update you later.

    I got the antenna today, it is an RP-SMA connector. The one I bought is longer than the existing one and is not ideal but it works and gives a stronger signal than the stock antenna.

    Did you manage to remove the old one successfully? Just unscrewing it?

    Yes it just unscrews, I believe it’s different on the CQ18.
