 Model AWD-100-500 100 - 500 MHz 2.15 dBi Gain 


Design Features: AWD-100-500 wide band heavy duty fully welded discone antenna is specially designed to survive the most extreme conditions, where conventional antennas often fail. AWD-100-500 wide band discone antenna is specially designed for omni-directional coverage. Due to its low VSWR through entire band from 100-500 MHz., this discone antenna can be used as a transmitting and receiving antenna with high efficiency, to meet the broadband requirement of a base station antenna at ATC sites for ground to ground and ground to air communication application without having the requirement of multiple antennas. The wide band discone antenna when packed, comes with cone and disc elements removed from the antenna body for ease of packing and shipment. The wide vertical beam-width of high power discone antennas allows clear communication for ground, sea, and ground-to-air applications. The powder coating on all metallic surfaces ensures complete protection from the corrosive gases, ultraviolet radiation, salt spray, acid rain present in coastal areas and sand storm environmental in dessert area.

Constructions: AWD-100-500 wideband discone antenna is rugged all weather model, does not require any field tuning or adjustments. The compact size of discone antenna allows easy handling and specially designed mounting hardware results in fast installation. The cone and disc hubs of wide band discone antennas are made of 6063T6 ultra corrosion resistant architectural anodized aluminum alloy. Discone Antenna termination and feed cable lie enclosed inside the mounting pipe for complete weather protection. The antenna is supplied with Military Olive Green color powder coating finish to protect it further from sever environmental conditions. All the screws, nuts and bolts of heavy duty wide band discone antenna are made of type 316 marine grade stainless steel. The entire wide band ATC discone antenna can be assembled in the field within 5 minutes with out any special tools.
