Side-by-Side Dual Polarized Antenna, 1710-2700, 65deg, 16.7-17.5dBi, 1.3m, VET, 2-12deg, External RET included

A combination of two X-Polarized antennas in a single radome, the RFS Quad-Pol antennas are designed for applications requiring a minimum number of antennas at a cell site and reduced tower loading. They offer the rugged construction of our new H Series of high band antennas that feature both high RF performance and energy efficiency. They are ideal for LTE 2.6, 3G, PCS, AWS, GSM 1800 and Mobile TV networks where high gain is required. These antennas are especially well suited for MIMO applications.


  • Ultra Broadband design
  • Two x-polarized broadband panels in a single radome — reduced tower loading
  • Variable electrical downtilt — provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 2-12 deg.
  • Extrenal RET modules (2x) included in the package and the price.
  • The Antenna is delivered with pre-installed and pre-commissioned RET.
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes
  • Optional remote tilt — can be retrofitted
  • Dual polarization
  • Low profile for low visual impact
  • Quick and easy to adjust
  • High front-to-back ratio
