RFS unveils newest addition to mobile TV antenna portfolio
Radio Frequency Systems unveiled the newest member of its mobile TV antenna family at Mobile World Conference, the UHF broadband MTV-4. The new antenna meets the requirements of collocated, cell-based wireless and mobile TV solutions, featuring a range of power and bandwidth options, from single channel through multichannel and full band.
Weighing in at 20kg, the 140mm diameter MTV-4 supports input powers of up to 1kW with a gain of 6dB, making it fully UHF mobile TV broadband compliant. This is made possible by the use of a single antenna supporting frequencies of 470MHz-860MHz.
This combination of power and bandwidth makes it ideal for supporting multichannel mobile TV operation, according to RFS. In addition, the unit’s small size and low drag profile deliver a high wind speed rating and low wind load characteristics.
