13-150-3

13-150-3 vehicle antennaThe 13-150 series of antennas offers significally reduced visual profile with electrical performance comparable to passive antennas more than twice the size. These antennas are adaptable to multi band frequency requirements with added UHF functionality already acheived within the same footprint.


System Operation
The 13-150 series of antennas utilise advance high speed switching circuitry techniques to achieve high levels of gain performance. This is made possible by each antenna holding an individually programmed EPROM memory device which can store a unique set of antenna calibration data pre-defined for the finalised platform. When the radio is tuned to a frequency it sends a frequency word to the internal Logic Converter Unit, this word is then deciphered into a binary format and enables the antenna to switch to the sent frequency. (All of this process happens in <50 microseconds) As the antenna holds all the calibrated frequency data it enables any antenna to work on any platform without the antenna having to return to the factory.
