Compact Broadband UHF Antenna

The i230ECx is a compact broadband side mounted UHF television antenna suitable for main and auxiliary applications. The antenna is configured in a compact cylindrical radome, is very lightweight and low wind load. The base configuration is an 8-bay module that includes two inputs. The antenna can be supplied with an integrated hybrid power divider and phasing loop for fixed horizontal, elliptical or circular polarization or the system can be configured with a dual feed system that will allow for variable polarization ratios, that can be configured for the entire array or for each channel feeding the system. This broadband antenna is suitable for single channel systems or for the combined operation of more than one television station in a single antenna. The 8-bay module is rated for 20 kW average power, 10 kW per input. There are standard system configurations for 8, 16 and 24 bays with array power handling capability up to 60 kW average power. The 16 and 24 bay configurations include the required power divider and feed harness.

The antenna is available with a wide cardioid azimuth pattern, Model i230ECW, or a narrow cardioid azimuth pattern, Model i230ECN. Both models are housed in a compact 22.64-inch (575 mm, cover – 21.85 inch, 555 mm body) cylindrical unpressurized fiberglass radome.
