    If I am not mistaken the Blubeam antenna's are a circularly polarized antenna and you need to replace both your Xmitter and Rcvr antennas as a set. Why not go with a TP-Link 9dbi whip antenna for just the repeater? Just add a RPSMA connector to the case and use a TP-Link 9 or 14 (14 is kind of big) dbi directional patch antenna. The 9dbi is 4.5" square and has a beam pattern of 60ºH and 76ºV, as good as the 2 or 3 dvi OEM patch.
    In any case these are the mod's I will be making soon, I will test for both OEM range and Modified range at the same location after I am done. By mounting a RPSMA connector in the repeater case I will be able to use a whip or patch antenna as the situation requires.

    I just tried the 9dBI TP-link directional for the first time this morning and it seems to work great. I use it with a 8dBi omni on the repeater and was solid at over 3000' away. Don't know how far it will go! Cheap, simple and relatively lightweight. Fits right in my case (although I have to disconnect from the repeater).
