Model AC-108-512 108-512 MHz. 2 dBi. Gain 


Design Features :AC-108-512 Omni-directional VHF/UHF band antenna is rugged all weather model, uses high class ultra corrosion resistant architectural aluminum alloy and does not require any field tuning or adjustments. The compact size of omni-directional VHF/UHF band antenna allows easy handling, shipping. The antenna is highly suitable as Tx and Rx antenna with high efficiency, to meet the broadband requirement of a base station antenna such as spectrum monitoring or jamming and ATC sites for ground-to-ground and ground-to-air application without having the requirement of multiple antennas. The antenna features high suppression of skin current which provides the smooth VSWR and constant gain over the entire 108-512MHz frequency band. The antenna when packed comes with ground radials removed from the antenna body for ease of packing and transportation. AC-108-512 covers the VHF/UHF civilian band, UHF/UHF aeronautical band and military aviation band.

Constructions: The VHF/UHF aviation antenna is consisting of large diameter radiating elements, enclosed in ABS tube. The ABS enclosure has excellent transparency for RF signals and enough strength to withstand specified wind loads. The mounting hardware and all fasteners are made of marine grade stainless steel. Large diameter vertical radiating element ensures the constant vertical beam-width of 78 degrees and 2dBi gain over the entire band. Antenna termination and feed cable lie enclosed inside the mounting pipe for complete weather protection. Cylindrical enclosure is used for low wind loading and for minimal effect of ice formation on the aviation antenna operation as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
