Model QHA-1117 1100-1700 MHz 2 dBic Gain 


Design Features: QHA-1117 broadband hemi omni-directional LHCP hemi omni quadrifilar helix or RHCP hemi omni 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 for GPS L1, GPS L2, GPS L3, GPS L4, GPS L5, GPS L6, IRIDIUM, GLONASS, and INMARSAT bands 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-1117 LHCP omni or RHCP quadrifilar helix omni 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 1100-1700 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. Other mounting configuration can also be supplied on request.
