Integrated Receive Antenna System
The IRAS Receive Antenna System is the perfect antenna to use with today’s six input diversity receivers. Consisting of a single radome containing five 14 dBi vertically polarized panel antennas and a circularly polarized 3.5 dBi uplook antenna, as well as six block down converters. It is the perfect antenna for 7 GHz newsgathering applications, regardless of where the video originates, be it from a truck, camera back or helicopter. By combining all the antennas in a single housing, site rental fees are minimized. Each panel has an azimuth beam that is 95° wide, providing excellent overlap between sectors. Full omni-directional diversity coverage is achieved in a small, easy to deploy package.
