WM230
Broadband Monopole Antenna WM Series 2 - 30 MHz

Designed for medium to long distance Omnidirectional operation, RFS Monopoles are vertically polarized and are characterised by a broad frequency bandwidth and low angle radiation patterns.

With high power handling, these antennas provide an economical solution, with long-term reliability and stability of electrical characteristics. Particular attention has been paid to the matching of dissimilar metals to minimise electro-chemical corrosion.
Monopole antennas require a radial ground mat system for specified performance. Ground mat kits are supplied with each antenna. The radiator comprises a cage of stranded marine-grade stainless steel wire.

The standard support structure is a guyed triangular galvanised steel mast supported on a heavy-duty ceramic insulator. The insulated tower base is fitted with a horn gap for lightning protection.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Power ratings from 1kW to 50kW.
  • Ground mat kits included with each antenna.
  • Radiators manufactured from marine-grade stainless steel wire.
  • Triangular galvanised steel mast.
  • Insulated tower base fitted with lightning protection.
  • Designed for severe environments, wind rating of 306km/h.
  • Stainless steel mast option available. Consult RFS.
