The AM-506 is a multisector antenna, which has been developed by SVP Broadcast Microwave. This is a very compact, robust and easy-to-install solution for applications where hemispherical coverage with high gain is needed.
The AM-506 antenna is formed of 5 vertical linear sector panel antennas to offer an omnidirectional coverage. It also has an up antenna which allows hemispherical coverage.
The AM-506 antenna integrates the bandpass filters and the down-converters. At the TNC connector outputs it offers received signal filtered, amplified and converted to the UHF band.
• Reception of signals coming from in-motion vehicles.
• It offers 360º coverage in the receiver site. There is no need to steer the antennas.
• Reception of signals transmitted from aircrafts (helicopters/airplanes) to the ground.
This antenna has been designed to be used in the receiver site in airborne links in diversity-6 mode; the up-down antenna allows the reception of the signal coming from the helicopter even if it is in the vertical direction.
