RM500Q-GL Antenna Ports

I wonder if anyone could provide an updated document describing the roles of the antenna connectors on the RM500Q-GL?

The only document I have seen for the RG500 (https://forums.quectel.com/uploads/short-url/gZbwan0OT4teshliYw6xhFmI1yh.pdf) enumerates eight ports; while the RM500Q-GL only has four. Some of the documentation released early on for the RM500Q seem to depict it having more ports too.

Dear customer,

Pls find here after link to Quectel 5G documents: https://cnquectel-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/nicolas_lemoine_quectel_com/Egt3ZfUKqLBCl5E5Pez1OY4BQCag7zBo_0JbGGW-D1qJAA?e=mUZiAj

In document “Quectel_RM500Q-GL_Hardware_Design_V1.0”, see §5 for antenna configuration.

Kind regards,

Thanks Nicolas - that’s perfect.

Hello dear, Peter.

I’m still confused for which is the first pair of Main and Diversity antenna ports for the RM500Q-GL module. I’m using two 2x2 Mimo antenas. I currently have one connected to ANT0 for Main, and ANT3 for Diversity is this correct? Thank you

Dear Alpha,
We recommend to connect all four antennas, at least three antennas including ANT0, ANT1 and ANT2. Thanks!

Dear Peter,
Thank you for your answer, does the order of the antennas make a difference? Thank you.

Dear Sir,
Yes, and basically we suggest to keep all four antennas connected.
