VHF Offset Dipole Array, 9dBd, 136-174MHz, 3° Downtilt
These high performance VHF dipole offset arrays are ideal for use when a cardioid pattern is required. The arrays feature high gain, low noise performance and enhanced null fill coverage with typical cardioid coverage characteristics.
OA series arrays have an almost full 180° horizontal beamwidth. This eliminates the possibility of fading at the extremities of the target coverage area. Antenna gain is approximately unity at the rear of the antenna.
As would be expected from a cardioid array, the vertical beamwidth is slightly greater than its BA (omnidirectional) or EA (elliptical) pattern counterparts.
OA series arrays feature the same solid construction as the BA and EA Series. The folded dipoles utilize an internal phasing harness in stable, PTFE based double-screened coaxial cable with PE jacket for optimum weatherproofing. The offset arrays incorporate extensive sidelobe suppression, null fill, and power input level of 750 watts continuous.
With all welded construction and superior internal harness construction, these antennas provide not only excellent pattern characteristics but also high levels of intermodulation and noise suppression. The entire array rests at ground potential and offers the ultimate in lightning resistant antennas.
