The DF-A0029 is a wideband portable Direction Finding antenna which is suitable for fixed and mobile mast-mounted applications.
The antenna has a loop array for good DF performance at low frequencies where the phase size of the array is small. It also has two pentagonal arrays for the middle and high frequency ranges. Secondary arrays of dipoles and monopoles are combined, consequently providing omni outputs up to 3.6 GHz.
A cavity inside the antenna, approximately 350 mm by 370 mm, allows an RF switch to be integrated into the antenna, thus reducing cable loss and weight. The cavity slides open, the switch can be installed by one person, on a mast, without a crane.
Small carrying handles moulded into the base of the antenna allow it to be moved safely by two people. A lifting eye is provided at the top for positioning with a crane.
