Cobham Announces Dual-Polar ‘White Space’ UHF Sector Antenna
Cobham’s wideband SA11-90-0.6VH/
The ‘White Space’ frequency band has been opened following the discontinuation of analogue television transmissions in some countries. The available frequencies have been allocated for both licensed and unlicensed uses producing exciting opportunities in long distance communication.
The UHF band is recognised for the ability to provide communications over large distances; across remote regions of land or sea; and good penetration in built-up areas. The band offers high data rates, making it extremely suitable for machine to machine (M2M) applications.
Having high gain (11dBi peak) and wide area coverage, with a 90 degree beamwidth the SA11-90-0.6VH/
Cobham has integrated both sets of the polarised elements within the same vertical aperture producing a compact, lightweight and rugged antenna. With a UV resistant radome it is designed for long term deployment. Having dimensions of 1550 x 550 x 232mm and approximate weight, including mounting kit, of 20kg, this means shipping costs can be reduced and ease of installation increased.
