Skyware Global 0.96m RxTx Class 1 Antenna

The Type 961 0.96m Class I RxTx Skyware Global Antenna is a rugged commercial grade product suitable for the most demanding applications. The reflector is thermoset-molded for strength and surface accuracy. Molded into the rear of thSkyware Global .98M Antennae reflector is a network of support ribs which strengthens the antenna and sustains its critical prabolic shape necessary for transmit performance. The reflector optics feature a long focal lenghth for excellent cross-pol performance.

The heavy guage steel Az/El mount provides a rigid support to the reflector. This mount secures the antenna to any 73-76 mm (2.88″-3.00″) O.D. mast and prevents slippage in high winds. A special powder paint process offers protection from weather-related corrosion.

The antenna features a unique feed which provides cross-pol performance that exceeds industry standards.
