Skyware Global 2.4m Ku-band RxTx Class III Antenna

The Skyware Global Type 243 2.4m Class III RxTx Antenna is a rugged commercial grade product suitable for the most demanding applications. skyware-global-2.4m-rxtx-class-3-antenna-systemThe reflector is thermoset-molded for strength and surface accuracy. Molded into the rear of the reflector is a network of support ribs which strengthens the antenna and sustains its critical prabolic shape necessary for transmit performance.

The Az/El mount is constructed from heavy-guage steel to provide a rigid support to the reflector and feed support arm. Heavy-duty lockdown bolts secure the mount to any 168 mm(6.63″) O.D. mast and prevent slippage in high winds.

Hot-dip galvanizing is standard on this model for maximum environmental protection.
