UHF Fiberglass Omnidirectional Antenna
The model FR450 UHF fiberglass omnidirectional antenna provides for transmission and reception of vertically polarized signals in the 450 to 470 MHz frequency band. The unit provides superior RF performance and coverage for UHF base station applications. The antenna's construction features a durable fiberglass radome to withstand harsh weather environments. The quality design of the integrated pigtail and N female connector provides good waterproofing for the connection between the antenna and transmission. The antenna features a 3 dBi gain with an E-plane of 40°. In addition, the unit's SWR is less than 1.5 (max) on 50 W impedance. The antenna measures 33.5" high and weighs 1.07 lb.
2.4 GHz ISM Antennas
The MPR-2400 series parabolic reflector antennas feature 20, 22 or 24 dBi gain for long-range point-to-point communications, and operate in the unlicensed 2400 to 2483.5 MHz frequency band. The units are constructed with spun aluminum reflectors and fully adjustable precision mounts, and are wind load rated for 110 MPH when covered with a half-inch of ice. The MYP series 2.4 GHz Yagi antennas also operate from 2400 to 2483.5 MHz. These units feature 8.8 or 13.5 dBi gain and are suitable for use in shorter-range point-to-point or bridge applications. One-piece unit construction minimizes intermodulation. The radome's 120 MPH wind rating allows for placement indoors or in harsh outdoor climates.
