Base station antenna

 

Collinear VHF Base Station Antenna

A collinear antenna is much the preferred type of antenna to connect to a VHF base station. The advantages include:

  • DC grounded at the base to reduce the risk of lightning damage to equipment.
  • Simple U-bolt mounting onto a pole, without large offset loads from a dipole type.
  • Even omni-directional propagation.
  • Increased height compared to a folded dipole on the same mast.
  • More elegant and not as noticeable as a folded dipole installation.

We supply prefabricated coaxial cables with each antenna. Please provide the length required. All you have to do is provide and install a properly earthed alloy or galvanized steel pole.
