 Model APT-1617 1350-1850 MHz. 17 dBi Gain 


Design Features: The APT-1617 tactical microwave grid parabolic antenna uses 6063T6 ultra corrossion resistant architectural anodized aluminum alloy. It consists of full Parabolic reflector having a diameter of 0.6 Meter for use in all tactical and fixed station applications for conventional radio relay systems. The antenna covers full band III, operates in linear polarization and requires only one operator for installation. The antenna features a rare combination of high gain, low side lobes and a rugged construction. APT-1617 is perfect for use in crowded electromagnetic spectrums which avoid interference from co-sited antenna. The mounting arrangement of Tactical Antenna permits to change the polarization from horizontal to vertical and vice-versa by mounting hardware fitted at rear end of the antenna.

Design Features: Radiating elements and the dipole feed are made high quality aluminum alloy to avoid any dissimilar materials. The rim and supporting arc are welded with argon welding technique to provide smooth finish and strong joints. The APT-1617 tactical microwave antenna operates in the 1350-1850MHz. frequency band and can be installed at vertical erected mast. The parabolic reflector is illuminated by a primary feed which is fitted to the center of assembly with quick fastener system. Radiating elements and the dipole feed are made of high quality brass. The grid parabolic antenna operates at D.C. ground with low resistance discharge path for protection against lightning and immunity to noise. All the screws, nuts and bolts of tactical microwave antenna are of stainless steel. The antenna supplied with army green color IR NATO 24X5.
