661 Series
174-230MHz TV Quadrant Antenna

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Quadrant antennas provide a cost-effective top or side mount TV antenna for omnidirectional coverage in Band III. Quadrant antennas are ideal for low and medium power single channel Band III TV applications. Coverage is basically omnidirectional and may be altered somewhat by adjustment of the positions of the radiators on the RFS antenna test range. Each bay comprises two radiating elements to give approximately 3.5dBd gain. Up to six bays are available to meet higher gain needs. The antenna system may be operated with pressurized or unpressurized feeders.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Designed for high corrosion resistance and long life in harsh environments
  • Includes top-mounted hot-dip galvanized support pole
  • All solid outer, jacketed cables for high reliability
  • Stainless steel radiators
  • Omnidirectional coverage
  • Horizontal polarization
  • Available in low power (unpressurized) and medium power (pressurized) versions
