Patriot Antenna dish covers shield receive antennas
Patriot Antenna Systems is offering satellite dish covers to protect receive antennas from inclement weather, including heavy snowfall, ice and hail.
Available for antennas in a variety of sizes from .60m to 2.4m for offset antennas and 3.1m to 6.3m for prime focus antennas, the satellite dish covers provide a surface that’s slicker and more vertical than the concave antenna. Combined with the effect of gravity, the covers allow snow to slide off antennas.
The covers allow the satellite signal to pass through the material and properly focus on the feed horn.
