The DF-A0274 8-element direction finding antenna covers a frequency range of 80 MHz to 108 MHz. Shipped in a compact storage and transport box, the antenna can be assembled by one person in 15 minutes, without special tools.
The antenna provides excellent sensitivity to incoming waves and impulses with angular resolution for strong signals well under 1º. Dipole elements provide good cross-polarisation rejection, and fair performance for signals arriving from up to 15º above or below the horizon.
The antenna is designed to be used in passive radar applications using the commercial FM radio band as source emitters. The array diameter is also optimized to allow digital beamforming or null-steering to be used as part of the solution.
The top flange mount provides a mounting interface for other system components or sensors.
