The 606L series of panels are low wind load antennas engineered to provide customized coverage for any single TV channel in Band I.
The 606L (and 606LV) panel comprises two separate dipole and screen assemblies vertically spaced one-half wavelength apart.
Each assembly has one half-wave dipole mounted on a screen with a 7/8" EIA input and must be mounted in pairs. Both the dipole and screen are made from galvanized steel tube for maximum strength and minimum wind load.
The open construction of these panels permits easy inspection and maintenance after installation.
The 606L (and 606LV) antenna can be arranged in an array to provide the required coverage for a particular service area. Array design is carried out by RFS engineers to provide both directional and omnidirectional patterns as well as beam tilt and null fill tailored to the customer's specification.
Panels are fed through a power divider network, normally fully pressurized, and designed to meet the power handling requirements at the customer's specified site. Half panels rated at 5kW achieve high power ratings in an array.
To minimize shipping costs panels are supplied in "knock down" form with dipoles, screens, power dividers and interconnecting cables in separate packages. Full assembly details are provided.
