RFMW Ltd. announces design and sales support for two body worn antennas from Southwest Antennas. Model 1065-028 is a right-hand, circularly polarized (RHCP) antenna while model 1065-029 offers left-hand polarization (LHCP). Developed to offer a high performance, rugged antenna option, the antenna radome housing is resistant to damage from drops, being stepped or jumped on, and other potential abuse.
Both 1065-028 and 1065-029 antennas are designed for use with handheld or body worn MIMO / MANET or SISO radio systems operating from 2100 to 2500MHz. Circular polarization offers performance enhancements in multi-antenna radio configurations, crowded RF / non line-of-sight scenarios, and improved performance in adverse weather conditions providing greater radio range for law enforcement, military or civilian applications. Free-space gain is specified at 4.5 dBic.
Measuring only 2.2 x 2.2 x 0.51 inches and weighing 1.3 ounces, the 1065-028 and 1065-029 are lighter, smaller and more rugged than similar antennas currently on the market and are easily secured into pouches, vests and MOLLE gear.
