 Model AC8-725HP 700-750 MHz 8.5 dBi. Gain 


Design Features : AC8-725HP High Power Fiberglass Omni-directional Collinear Antenna is rugged all weather model uses high class brass and aluminum alloy and does not require any field tuning or adjustments. The antenna uses an air-cored transmission line instead of regular polyethylene and foam dielectric cables in order to handle the 1KW continuous power. All junctions are fully welded and clamped together to prevent RF inter-modulation and to withstand the specified power rating. The antenna is completely protected within a high-tech ruggedized radome to ensure survivability in the worst environments. The compact size of fiber glass collinear antenna allows easy handling and shipping.

Constructions: The AC8-725HP 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 gain over the specified frequency band. The UHF collinear antenna consist of large diameter brass radiating elements stacked vertically, fed in phase and enclosed in fiber glass tube. The antenna termination is enclosed at bottom of the antenna for complete weather protection. The marine grade stainless steel mounting hardware is supplied with the antenna.
