VALCOM'S VAS-700 UHF Dipole antenna is a rugged self supporting vertically polarized broadband antenna covering the frequency range of 700-800 MHz. This general purpose antenna can be used in the transmit or receive mode.
The antenna is designed for use under severe environmental conditions encountered aboard naval ships. The antenna radiating elements are housed in a single piece fibreglass radome with an aluminum mounting flange.
The antenna can handle 200 Watts peak envelope power and 100 Watts average RF power over the entire frequency range. It has a VSWR of less than 2.0:1 over the 700-800 MHz band. The RF input connector is an N-Type receptacle located on the bottom of the base.
The antenna meets the requirements of MIL-S-901D for shock, MIL-STD-167 for vibration and all the service conditions of MIL-E-16400.
