The DC-38 Disc-Cone Antenna is designed for high reliability in broadband transmitting or receiving applications. It radiates in an omnidirectional pattern on the horizontal plane and provides versatile, wide frequency coverage in the 60-80 MHz band, particularly effective for short range surveillance and air-to-ground communication. The DC-38 antenna is rugged, lightweight, and waterproof. It is constructed of noncorrosive materials and has no exposed dissimilar metal joints. It is preassembled to the greatest extent practical for shipment and is easily installed on a vertical mast using only hand tools.
