Digital Yacht's new, budget priced WL70 wi-fi antenna brings reliable, long range wi-fi connectivity to an on board laptop PC or MAC.
More and more boaters want access to the internet afloat. Marinas and ports as well as a large number of cafes, hotels, restaurants and service providers offer wi-fi connectivity but you may just miss that vital connection if you’re moored or anchored away from the dock – especially if you’re below decks about to enjoy a movie or catch up on email. The WL70 can offer connections up to about ½ mile/1km depending upon conditions.
It has a very high performance 1.25m 15dBm antenna to suck in the weakest of signals and the encapsulated low noise, high sensitivity modem connects to the PC via simple plug ‘n play USB interface. It fits a standard 1” mount (not supplied) so can be permanently mounted or even taken out into the cockpit when moored and temporarily installed.

The WL70 is priced at £125/$199.95/€185 (excluding VAT) and is available now.
