The DF-A0095 is a wideband portable DF antenna 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 three pentagonal arrays for the higher frequency ranges. A secondary pentagonal array of dipoles are combined by an internal 5-way low-loss combiner. This provides a good omni from 1 to 500 MHz. It also provides an integrated biconical antenna provides a second omni from 500 to 6000 MHz. Improved sensitivity for low frequency monitoring can be accomplished by the optional MONO-A0059 whip attachment which can be fitted to the top of the antenna.
There is a decagonal cylindrical cavity inside the antenna, which is approximately 350 mm wide by 370 mm high. This allows switching, amplification and RF processing to be integrated into the antenna. This reduces cable loss and weight. The cavity slides open giving access to the RF unit. This can be done by one person, on a mast, without a crane.
