The DPV-108A L-Band antenna was designed for ground-toair, line of sight voice or data communication circuits. The antenna is vertically polarized and has a frequency range of 1750–1850 MHz with a 200 watt average power capacity. The antenna was specifically designed to optimize maximum radiated power above the horizon by including up-tilt and null fill. Null fill above the horizon ensures the radiated power remains virtually constant allowing for uninterrupted communication between the base station and the aircraft, while the antenna’s 10 dBi gain accommodates long range communication circuits of over 100 miles. The antenna is supplied with a 7-16 DIN connector. The rugged fiberglass radome and thick walled aluminum mounting base ensure the DPV-108A will provide many years of excellent service in extreme environmental conditions including wind and ice.
