 Model FMC6-98 88-108 6 dBi. Gain 


Design Features: FMC6-98 FM band Fiberglass Omni-directional Collinear Antenna is rugged all weather model 6063T6 ultra corrosion resistant architectural aluminum, high class brass alloy and does not require any field tuning or adjustments. The antenna is supplied in two segments for easy of handling and shipping. The upper and lower portion of antenna is threaded together to prevent RF inter-modulation and antenna is completely protected within a high-tech ruggedized radome to ensure survivability in the worst environments condition. The fiber glass enclosure has excellent transparency for RF signals and enough strength to withstand specified wind loads. The antenna termination is enclosed at bottom of the antenna for complete weather protection.

Constructions: The FMC6-98 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 6dBi gain over the specified frequency band. The collinear antenna consist of large diameter brass radiating elements stacked vertically, fed in phase and enclosed in fiber glass tube. The mounting hardware is made of type 316 marine grade stainless steel and supplied with the antenna. The antenna is highly suitable for small power community broadcast application.
