 Model AC6-460 450-470 MHz 6.8 dBi. Gain 


Design Features: AC6-460 Omni-directional TETRA Band Collinear Antenna is rugged all weather model uses 6063T6 ultra corrosion resistant architectural aluminum, high class brass alloy and does not require any field tuning or adjustments. All junctions are fully welded to prevent RF inter-modulation and antenna is completely protected within a high-tech ruggedized ABS radome to ensure survivability in the worst environments. The UV resistant ABS enclosure has excellent transparency for RF signals and enough strength to withstand specified wind loads. The compact size of collinear antenna allows easy handling and shipping.

Constructions: The AC6-460 is a center fed design which eliminates the distortion of the radiation pattern and ensures a true omni-directional horizontal pattern. The special stub matching is used for smooth VSWR and constant 6.8dBi gain over the entire 450-470MHz TETRA frequency band. The collinear antenna consist of large diameter brass radiating elements stacked vertically, fed in phase and enclosed in ABS tube. The antenna termination is enclosed at bottom of the antenna for complete weather protection. The mounting hardware is made of type 316 marine grade stainless steel and supplied with the antenna.
