Optimizer® Dual Polarized Antenna, 1695-2200, 65deg, 18.4dBi, 1.3m, VET, 0-10deg, RET

This X-Polarized variable tilt antenna provides exceptional suppression of all upper sidelobes at all downtilt angles. It also features a wide downtilt range. This antenna is optimized for performance across the entire frequency band (1710-2200 MHz).


  • Variable electrical downtilt — provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 0-10 deg.
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes (Typically <-18dB)
  • Gain tracking — difference between (1695-1755 MHz) and  (2110-2200 MHz) <1dB
  • Azimuth beamwidth difference between (1695-1755 MHz) and  (2110-2200 MHz) <5 deg
  • Low profile for low visual impact
  • Dual polarization; broadband design
  • Motor pre-installed
