VHF/UHF Digital Antenna

Frequency Range : 30 MHz to 512 MHz
Part Number : S65-8282-831
VHF/UHF Digital Antenna
S65-8282-831: Representing current state-of-the-art in digitally-tuned antenna technology, the S65-8282-831 provides high-gain VHF/UHF performance. Frequency tuning is accomplished using solid-state microprocessor technology with switching speeds less than 50 microseconds, supporting secure, frequency-hopping ovice communication systems. The S65-8282-831 is tunable from 30 MHz to 512 MHz and has four to ten times more gain (in both transmit and receive) in the crucial 30-88 MHz frequency band, than comparative passive antennas. The aerodynamic composite blade of the antenna houses a microprocessor-based logic controller, RF tuning circuitry and DC switching power supply resulting in a single antenna package. The antenna operates on a standard 28 VDC power source. The antenna is less than 10 iinches tall, making it ideal for applications with severe mounting concerns. Frequency setting information is transmitted directly to the antenna from the radio via a multi-pin connector. Tuning of the inductor circuits is achieved by the logic controller via PIN diodes. The antenna is compatible with Collins ARC-210, Raytheon ARC-231 and Rhodes & Schwartz M3AR 6000 radios. NSN: 5985-01-598-5646 FEDERAL & MILITARY SPECS: MIL-HDBK-5400, MIL-STD-810.
