Southwest Antennas dual-band omni antennasSouthwest Antennas has expanded its line of dual-band antenna solutions with the addition of two new S and C-band omni-directional antennas. The new products are ideal for reducing equipment complexity by downsizing the number of antennas, or for users with radios capable of interference avoidance and anti-jamming to utilize multiple bands on a single antenna to improve radio performance in contested RF environments.

Available in gooseneck or sealed spring versions, the new antennas feature peak gain several degrees above the horizon and are ideal for both ground-to-ground or ground-to-air communications, including tactical and MIMO / MANET mesh radio systems in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).

To view the full specifications of the new antennas, visit the following pages on Southwest Antennas’ website:

Ultra-Flex sealed spring Dual-Band Omni Antenna, Half Wave Dipole, 2.2 – 2.5 GHz & 4.4 – 5.9 GHz, 1.0 / 2.3 dBi

Integrated RF Coaxial Gooseneck Dual-Band Omni Antenna, Half Wave Dipole, 2.1 – 2.5 / 4.4 – 5.9 GHz, 1.8 / 1.9 dBi
