Wahoo, that’s connected! *Usually* after you’ve made a few connections it connects more quickly the next time, but signal quality of -81 isn’t stellar, so it might still be somewhat slow. Are you testing at where you’re going to deploy? If so, you might want to take some time fiddling with just the right arrangement of the antenna and other wires to maximize your signal – you don’t want other wires to cross the antenna and I think you want a slight curve in the antenna’s cable. Small movements can make a surprising difference. If you’re planning to deploy somewhere else, and it’s easy to do so, you might want to run that “first connection” program again at your deployment location to see how long the connection takes. Hopefully it will be faster. Concrete office walls do a pretty good job of blocking cellular signals.
