The 662 series has been designed for circularly polarized Band III TV/DAB applications or alternatively, combined horizontal and vertical applications in the 174 - 230MHz frequency range and is extremely useful as an antenna building block.
Four dipoles are mounted in square configuration off a reflective screen to enable the horizontal and vertical components to be fed separately. It is possible to radiate separate services on horizontal, vertical or circular polarization using the one antenna system with a resultant saving on antenna and tower space and cost.
The dipoles are fabricated from stainless steel for maximum corrosion protection. The screen is hot dipped galvanized to international standards.
662CP panels are available with either 2 or 4 input connectors while 662HP and 662VP panels are available with either 1 or 2 input connectors.
All panels are available with either 7-16 DIN or 7/8"" EIA flanged input connectors. The 7-16 DIN versions are un-pressurized. Contact RFS for details.
