Dielectric Launches New Antenna

Dielectric Communications, a division of SPX and a specialist in broadcast antenna systems, launched a new antenna designed to support the expanding international MobileMedia market. Dielectric’s new L-Band, 1.4-GHz high-power, circularly polarised broadband antenna builds upon the company’s pylon antenna technology by featuring both azimuth and elevation pattern versatility in a single “common box” package. 
Dielectric’s “common box” approach improves network planning capabilities by allowing broadcasters to adjust the transmission pattern without changing the mechanical specifications of the antenna design. Network planners are able to perform a comprehensive analysis of all possible site locations that can accommodate a single specific set of mechanical specifications. The antenna’s pattern versatility then gives network planners the ability to blanket a region with the most effective coverage.
The aesthetically pleasing, low-wind-load construction of the new antenna allows for either side- or top-mounting and provides an excellent axial ratio, a 1- to 4-kW input power rating, gains from 15 to 19 dBi, a VSWR of less than 1.1:1, and 10- to 24-kW ERP/polarisation. Visit
