VHF MeanderTM Collinear, 0dBd, 150-160MHz, PIM Rated


SKU: COL51-160 Category:

COL51-160 Features:

    • Strong Bandwidth
    • Internally DC grounded for lightning protection and reduction of precipitation noise
    • Tightly controlled radiation patterns for optimum coverage
    • Patented Meander PCB design for optimum RF pattern stability
    • Full band coverage
    • Industry leading PIM ratings (-150dBc) providing low IM and low noise characteristics for optimum performance
    • Peak Instantaneous Power 25kw

The patented Meander™ collinear element design allows multiple half wave elements to be stacked without the variations in cable lengths and mechanical joints which have typified the construction techniques in high gain collinear antennas. With each dipole element being printed on a single sided PCB the susceptibility to passive intermodulation is practically eliminated. Placing the elements on a board not only controls PIM but also removes manufacturing variations so that each and every antenna will provide the same pattern, tilt and VSWR characteristics over its operating bandwidth.
