The 15970 is a 1 dBd, omnidirectional antenna. Its adhesive backing adheres to a wall, rear-view mirror, window, or another suitable flat, non-conductive surface. This antenna should reside inside of a building or enclosure.
Omnidirectional antennas pick up signals from all directions (i.e., they don't need to be pointed directly at the source of the signal to pick it up).
