Background

An antenna’s dBi value is a measure of its gain compared to a reference antenna. The reference antenna is isotropic, which means that it emits signal equally in all directions. An antenna with a higher dBi value has more gain than an antenna with a lower dBi value.

dB values are always relative to something else – in this case, relative to an isotropic antenna.

When choosing an antenna for a particular application, it is important to consider its gain. A directional antenna with high gain can be a good choice for applications where you need to maximize the signal strength in a specific direction, such as when aiming a radio signal at a specific target. However, directional antennas can also make it more difficult to receive signals from other directions, so they are not always the best choice for every application.

Antennas for cell phone boosters and TVs are often directional to maximize signal from a fixed cell tower or TV station.
