BMR8-A-B1
Penetrator™ Antenna, 806-869, 12.4dBi, 220deg

The novel side fed dipole design of these antennas provides 6 dBd, 8 dBd, 10 dBd or 12 dBd omnidirectional gain with 63 MHz bandwidth. They feature constant beamtilt, heavy null fill, and have been VSWR tested. Depending upon the specific required area of coverage, horizontal patterns O, A, B, D or H are available.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • High gain maximizes ERP.
  • Heavy null fill enhances close-in coverage.
  • Customized beamtilt minimizes interference to and from adjacent systems.
  • Various patterns available to efficiently cover target area.
