UHF Binary Dipole Array, 9dBd, 400-520MHz, PIM Rated

These high performance UHF dipole arrays are ideal for highly populated radio sites requiring long haul omnidirectional coverage. They operate over entire bands and offer gains of 3, 6 or 9dBd (depending on model) exhibiting a VSWR of <1.5:1 across the band.

SKU: BA160-67-DIN Category:

The BA160-67-DIN arrays utilize an internal phasing harness in PTFE based double screened coaxial cable with polyethylene jacket to aid waterproofing and resist bird attack. The use of a unique phasing arrangement provides extensive sidelobe suppression and null fill characteristics. The arrays will accept an input power level of 500 watts continuous, making them ideal for high power multiple transmitter applications. The BA80 series are offered with 3°, 5° or 8° downtilt, to further enhance close-in coverage characteristics.

All welded alodined aluminum construction and new fabrication techniques in both the harness and dipole sections have proven to minimize intermodulation and noise generated within the antennas. The entire array rests at ground potential and offers the ultimate in lightning resistant antennas.
