The PRA-618-C22 is a lightweight composite, parabolic reflector antenna designed to transmit or receive in the frequency range from 6.0 to 18.0 GHz. The antenna is supplied with dual ridge feed horn. The parabolic reflector serves to enhance the front-to-back ratio of the radiation pattern, as well as to increase the forward gain over a narrow beam.
The basic PRA-618 antenna can be provided in a 2 foot diameter aluminum (PRA-618-102) or composite reflector (PRA-618-C22). The same waveguide feed is used with both configurations.
The PRA-618-C22 model can be provided with different mounting options. Tripods with or without pan/tilt head and telescopic masts are available. Additionally, the PRA- 618-C22 can be provided with our high end products; such as EL/AZ Positioning system with Controller; Azimuth rotator with Controller; Polarization Rotator with Controller. The entire antenna with mounting mechanism and optional tripod fits into an optional fiberglass case for storage and transport. An optional waveguide to coax transition is also available.
