BDH230 Series

Broadband Biconical Dipoles 2 - 30MHz Product Description This broadband series of antennas covering 2.3 to 30MHz is designed for short to long range (depending on frequency) transmitting or receiving applications. Polarization is horizontal and pattern essentially omnidirectional.

Features & Benefits · These antennas, being broadband, do not require tuning, thus eliminating the need for any form of antenna tuning unit (ATU) with its associated losses. · No terminating resistors are employed and so full power is available for radiation. · The broadband feature is ideal for multi-channel or frequency agile synthesized HF radio equipment. · The antenna comprises two horizontal conical sections, the elements of which are connected in the centre to a common feed line. Either a 300 ohm balanced line, or a 50 ohm coaxial feeder with a balun option may be used to feed the antenna. · Average power rating of the standard antenna is 10kW with higher rating to special order. · Baluns are available with average power rating of 1kW and 10kW. Higher ratings are also available. · Supplied complete with all masts

D130 Series

Delta Antenna D Series 1.5 - 30 MHz Product Description Delta antennas are designed for coverage over short to medium distances and exhibit essentially a omni-directional, high angle radiation pattern. Radiation results from a wave travelling upwards to a resistive termination at the apex of the antenna.

Features & Benefits  Each antenna is available with or without a support mast and is supplied complete with the appropriate balun and termination. When masts are supplied they include all installation hardware.  The oblique elements on this antenna type are fed by above ground open wire. Within the range of delta antennas are other models where the oblique elements are fed by coaxial cables that can be installed over or underground.  With these omnidirectional models, antenna elements are in a single plane with the feed distributed from a central balun transformer, through horizontal feed "wings", to the bottom of the oblique elements. Each element is fed anti-phase to the other.  Ground anchors secure wings and oblique elements in position.  Two of these omnidirectional deltas can be attached to a single mast and operated as separate transmit antennas. Isolation between the two is 30dB. A dual antenna variant, for circular polarisation, can also be supplied.

D230 Series

Delta Antenna D Series 2 - 30 MHz Product Description Delta antennas are designed for coverage over short to medium distances and exhibit essentially a omni-directional, high angle radiation pattern. Radiation results from a wave travelling upwards to a resistive termination at the apex of the antenna.

Features & Benefits  Each antenna is available with or without a support mast and is supplied complete with the appropriate balun and termination. When masts are supplied they include all installation hardware.  The oblique elements on this antenna type are fed by above ground open wire. Within the range of delta antennas are other models where the oblique elements are fed by coaxial cables that can be installed over or underground.  With these omnidirectional models, antenna elements are in a single plane with the feed distributed from a central balun transformer, through horizontal feed "wings", to the bottom of the oblique elements. Each element is fed anti-phase to the other.  Ground anchors secure wings and oblique elements in position.  Two of these omnidirectional deltas can be attached to a single mast and operated as separate transmit antennas. Isolation between the two is 30dB. A dual antenna variant, for circular polarisation, can also be supplied.

DDC330 Series

Delta Antenna DDC Series 3 - 30 MHz Product Description This Delta antenna is designed for coverage over short to medium distances and exhibits a slightly directional, high angle radiation pattern. Radiation results from a wave travelling upwards to a resistive termination at the apex of the antenna.

Features & Benefits  Each antenna is available with or without a support mast and is supplied complete with the appropriate balun and termination. When masts are supplied they include all installation hardware.  The oblique elements on this antenna type are fed by coaxial cables that can be installed over or underground.  The lack of overground wings offer advantages where personnel safety and peculiar site features are an issue.  A central balun supplies anti-phase signals to the bottom of the oblique elements via underground coaxial cable lines and secondary balun transformers.  These semi-directional antennas have two oblique elements set at an angle to each other supported by a common mast which creates a slightly directional pattern.

TDG230 Series

Tandem Delta Antenna TDG Series 2 - 30 MHz Product Description A high angle radiating antenna designed for ionospheric propagation over short to medium distances. Specifically designed for ground to air systems utilising high performance and reliability

Features & Benefits  The Tandem Delta is a derivation of the RFS series of delta antennas.  Unlike the standard delta or other travelling wave antennas, where radiation results from a wave travelling upward to a resistive termination at the apex, the Tandem Delta does not incorporate a terminating resistor. All input power is therefore radiated and, in consequence, these new antennas have a higher gain than the standard delta. Furthermore, removal of the terminating resistor means that higher power ratings are more readily achieved.  Because of its high radiation angle characteristics, the Tandem delta antenna is less prone to long distance interference and local electrical noise. It is strongly recommended for high grade communication networks.  Tandem Delta antennas operate completely independently of ground conditions. Their polarisation is elliptical.  RFS masts, and stubmasts for this antenna, are available as options.

It is strongly recommended for high grade communication networks.  Tandem Delta antennas operate completely independently of ground conditions. Their polarisation is elliptical.  RFS masts, and stubmasts for this antenna, are available as options.
