Tactical Antenna Supports Rugged Operations

Omnidirectional Antenna: 1001-236

May 14, 2020

RFMW announces design and sales support for a Southwest Antennas’ omnidirectional antenna. The 1001-236 provides a 200 MHz bandwidth operating from 2.5 to 2.7 GHz with 2 dBi of gain. The G10 fiberglass radome holds up to abuse in the field, and a low-glare black finish helps the antenna blend into surroundings and not draw attention during tactical operations. Flexible, the spring is fully sealed to prevent rain, dust and other debris from impacting antenna performance, which is also fully submersible once securely mated to a radio. The 1001-236 does not require a ground plane and is equipped with a Type-N(m), non-rotating RF connector.
