2
Using the antenna extension brackets or
the templates (fig. 1; Pg. 2), mark the two (2)
mounting hole locations.
3
Drill two 5/16” (8mm) pilot holes
(Fig 2).
4
Fold the anchor (D) in the middle by
pressing in middle with finger (Fig. 3).
5
Insert anchor in hole and tap flush with a
hammer (Fig. 4).
6
Use nail or small screwdriver to pop anchor
open behind hollow wall (Fig. 5; not necessary
for thick or solid walls).
Do not hammer nail or screwdriver.
Remove the nail or screwdriver.
8
Repeat steps 4 - 7 for the second anchor.
Note: to avoid interference, only one
anchor should be installed vertically.
9

5
Mount antenna over-head and within line of site to
transmitters. The dipole antenna’s reception is strongest
at the sides of the antenna with a null point at the tip.
Therefore, it is best to tilt the antenna so that the side
faces the transmitters.
• Wall Mount (Fig. 8).
• Ceiling Mount (Fig. 9).
• Ceiling Mount RX with PoE to Converge Pro 2 or
Beamforming Mic Array 2 (Fig. 10).
• AV Rack Mount (Fig. 11).
Separation distance of antennas should be a
minimum of 2’ (ft.) and maximum of 30’ (ft.).
Attach TNC panel mount connector (C), antenna from
Dialog20 Receiver and extension cable (E) to antenna
extension bracket (Fig. 8).
Attach the other end of extension cable to Dialog20
Receiver.
Repeat steps 1 & 2 for the second antenna and
extension cable.
