TrunkLine Antenna, Ultra-High Performance, Single Polarized, 8 ft

Rev : A | Rev date : 05 Apr 2012
RFS Microwave Antennas are designed for microwave systems in all common frequency ranges from 4 GHz to 15 GHz. Different options of survival windspeeds are available. This allows the use of antennas in areas where extreme wind conditions are normal. The antennas utilise a conventional feed system and are available in three performance classes offering complete flexibility when designing a network. Ultra High Performance antennas are the optimum choice for systems where a high level of pattern performance is required because of high local radio congestion. These antennas are required for use in networks where there is a very high interference potential. Antennas are available in 6 ft (1.8m) to 12 ft (3.7m) diameters. The Ultra High Performance antennas are available in dual polarised (UDA) as well as in single polarised versions (UA). All antennas include a flexible radome to minimise its impact on the antenna?s electrical characteristics.


  • Field-proven reliability and long life
  • Support for winds up to 200 km/h (125 mph) with high-wind versions that support winds up to 252 km/h (155 mph) and an optional sway bar for added assurance in case mistakes are made during installation
  • A single-piece configuration and compact packaging to reduce transportation costs
  • Frequencies ranging from 4 GHz to 15 GHz with support for two wideband frequency ranges (5.725-6.875 and 7.125-8.5 GHz) to reduce antenna requirements and simplify logistics
