The 1065-038 from Southwest Antennas is a RHCP directional patch antenna for radios operating in DoD and federal law enforcement licensed bands from 4.4 to 5 GHz. It delivers a gain of up to 4.20 dBic and can handle an input power of under 10 watts. This light weight antenna cab be easily worn and hidden in tactical clothing such as vests or MOLLE gear and is ideal for use in multi-antenna MIMO / MANET radio applications such as handheld and small form factor body worn tactical radios. The antenna provides superior RF performance, ensure long range radio communication links, and provide high data rate throughput when used with MANET / MIMO self-forming, self-healing radio networks, or SISO radio systems.
It has a high performance black chrome SMA(f) RF connector and waterproof, UV stable radome that can withstand immersion in 20-meters (65.6 ft.) of salt water for two hours if the RF connector is mated or sealed with a protective end cap. This body worn antenna is suitable for field applications in point-to-point or multi-antenna mesh configurations, including fixed site infrastructure and mobile antenna applications.
