Jampro to show broadband UHF slot antenna at NAB
Jampro Antenna will demonstrate its new Prostar JA/MS-BB Broadband UHF Slot Antenna at NAB. The antenna offers an economic alternative to purchasing, installing and maintaining multiple antennas by providing a single, compact broadband solution that conserves tower space and minimizes wind loading.
Designed for multichannel/combined channel operations for analog-to-analog, analog-to-digital or digital-to-digital broadband TV broadcasting applications, the JA/MS-BB comes factory tuned and ready-to-install. Broadcasters can choose from a wide selection of standard and custom patterns.
The antenna can be configured for horizontal, circular or elliptical polarization. Beam tilt and null fill are available, and the JA/MS-BB handles power ranging from 2kW to 10kW. Input impedance is 50 ohm and VSWR of 1.1:1 or better can be achieved over sub-bands ranging from 470MHz-530MHz to 835MHz-890MHz.
