The 1001-246 from Southwest Antennas is a Broadband Dipole Antenna that operates from 1250 to 2600 MHz. This omnidirectional antenna delivers a peak gain of 2.2 dB (@1.8 GHz) and can handle up to 3 watts of input power. The antenna has a horizontal beamwidth of 360 degrees and a vertical beamwidth of 60 degrees. The antenna's element design and unique matching structure allow for a wide operational bandwidth. An Integrated highpass RF filter helps attenuate VHF and UHF frequencies from co-located transmitters.
The antenna features an integrated waterproof 3.13" RF Gooseneck which contributes to the improvement of RF link margin and overall antenna performance. The integrated RF Gooseneck allows the antenna to bend and deflect away from impacts during indoor or outdoor operations. The RF Gooseneck can be threaded through MOLLE gear or other tactical vest hardware for added security while moving.
This Vertically polarized antenna has a rugged flat black fiberglass radome which provides protection from damage and gives the antenna a low visibility finish. The antenna measures 11.95 (H) x 0.85 (D) inches and is available with a TNC (m) non-rotating connector which allows the antenna to be easily secured or removed from equipment in the field by a single gloved hand. It has been designed for handheld video receivers, portable radio systems, or any other mobile communication platform.
