ST Series
Sloping Triangle Directional Antenna Series 3-30MHz & 5-30MHz

Rev : 01 | Rev date : 25 Nov 2021

These simple, low-cost, broadband horizontally polarized antennas are designed for medium to long-range point to point or sectorized transmission or receiving applications.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Characterized by an increase in gain and directivity when operated within the higher frequency band, the ST series provides an economical option to a full horizontal Log Periodic Dipole design.
  • The antenna is comprised of two sloping wires resistively terminated at the center point of the vee near ground level. The apex of the vee is supported by a suitable mast while the antenna is fed via a balun transformer at the masthead.
  • The ST330 model is available as an ST330S version which has a much reduced footprint for applications where the ground area may be an issue.
  • The ST series is available with or without mast systems of which two versions are available: Tubular Aluminium (MA): Triangular galvanized steel for high wind speed sites (MS).
