Dielectric to roll out Broadband Omni CP Pylon antenna at NAB2007
At NAB2007, Dielectric will showcase its new Broadband Omni CP Pylon Antenna, which offers lower cost and reduced complexity for broadcasters using the lower 700MHz band.
By using a third of the radiators, feed system and connections typically used in a panel-style antenna, the Broadband Omni CP Pylon Antenna provides increased reliability in a self-supporting, pylon-style format.
Designed with short element spacing, Dielectric's new pylon antenna additionally features a low RFR, a VSWR of less than 1.2:1, and a low wind load, reduced 40 percent from the typical panel antenna approach.
The new unit's design incorporates discrete, circularly polarized, truncated broadside helical elements.
