Model QHA-3040 3000-4000MHz 2 dBic Gain 
 

QUADRIFILAR HELIX ANTENNA

Design Features : QHA-3040 broadband omni-directional RHCP quadrifilar helix or LHCP quadrifilar helix antenna is rugged all weather model, enclosed in a ABS radome, uses high class copper alloy and does not require any field tuning or adjustments. The compact size of LHCP or RHCP omni-directional quadrifilar helix antenna allows easy handling, shipping and highly suitable for receiving, transmitting, scanning, monitoring, surveillance and jamming applications without having the requirement of multiple antennas. The antenna is also highly suitable for Ground to Air communication/jamming application due to its wide elevation beamwidth with omni-directional properties. Antenna termination fitted just below the NATO mounting flange for complete weather protection. Other type of mounting hardware / configuration can be supplied on request.

Constructions :The QHA-3040 LHCP or RHCP quadrifilar helix antenna is consisting of two (pair) vertical loop radiating elements at right angles to each other, twisted into a helix turns vertically and enclosed in ABS radome. The special “Teflon Dielectric Transmission Line” technique is used to handle high power handling capacity allowing smooth VSWR and typical 2dBi. gain over the entire 3000-4000 MHz. frequency band. The UV resistant ABS enclosure has excellent transparency for RF signals and enough strength to withstand specified wind loads. The stainless steel mounting hardware is supplied with the antenna. Cylindrical shell/enclosure is used for low wind loading and for minimal effect of ice formation on the antenna operation as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance
