Looking for LTE N-Female Switch - DC-5Ghz

I've just had installed a Maximum RV 4g/lte amplifier and it is working great. I would like to add a yagi (Wide Band Directional Antenna by Wilson) antenna to the TV antenna mast for when I am even farther away from a cell tower.

I am looking for an antenna switch (two antennas, one radio) that will switch between the Omni on the roof, and the Yagi on the mast. Looking at the LTE specs , it looks like I need to support a switch that is good up to 3.8 GHz. I've seen "surplus" switches that support 5 GHz, but all the new ones top out at 3.0 GHz.

Anyone have experience with this type of antenna switch? db loss?

Thank you.

It doesn't look like there are any networks greater than 2.5 GHz in North America. So a 3 GHz switch should be fine.

Instead of a switch, you should also consider a RF splitter/combiner. These are commonly used to join multiple antennas to one radio. As an example, check out this one.
