Ultra-Wideband Microwave Antenna

The new RFS microwave antennas are the first in North America to cover the unlicensed band (5.725 to 5.85 GHz), the lower 6 GHz band (5.925 to 6.425 GHz), the upper 6 GHz band (6.425 to 6.875 GHz) and the 7 GHz band (6.875 to 7.125 GHz) in a single antenna.


Radio Frequency Systems’ (RFS) new quad-band, dual-polarized microwave antennas give customers the flexibility to access the recently released 7 GHz spectrum and to add capacity when needed. With a single antenna, customers can easily switch among the four bands -- unlicensed band (5.725-5.85 GHz), the lower 6 GHz band (5.925-6.425 GHz), the upper 6 GHz band (6.425-6.875 GHz) and the 7 GHz band (6.875-7.125 GHz) -- to access new spectrum. In addition, they effectively gain two antennas in one because they can stack multiple channels on each polarization to increase capacity.

These 6-, 8- and 10-foot diameter antennas are available in dual-polarized, un-shrouded models (PADX Series) that deliver superior radiation performance and in dual-polarized, ultra-high-performance models (UXA Series) that feature high cross-polarization discrimination (XPD) to reduce interference.

The antennas feature a spun backring design for mechanical stability and secure links. They also feature a powder-painted finish, rather than a wet-painted finish. RFS is the only vendor to offer powder-painted microwave antennas to the North American market. Powder painting improves the antenna’s ability to resist corrosion due to harsh environmental conditions, such as pollution and salt.

Features/Benefit Chart
Allows frequency changes between the FOUR bands without changing out the microwave antenna- Cost savings
- Reduced CAPEX
Allows operation of the main radio in 7GHz, lower 6GHz or upper 6GHz and hot standby radio in unlicensed 5.8 GHz- Improvement of overall system reliability
- No system downtime
