Wavelink Antenna Professional Grade Folded Dipole Antennas Minimize Intermod, Eliminate Misalignment Completely

June 06, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Wavelink Antenna Systems is pleased to announce the release of the Professional Grade folded dipole antenna series, designed specifically for mission critical and extreme weather installations.

Antenna failures represent an unnecessary inconvenience and expense for system operators. The high cost of travel and manpower to replace a failed unit far exceeds any savings realized on the initial purchase of an "economy" antenna.

"With the wireless industry concentrating mostly on cellular, Wimax and higher frequencies, the decline in the availability of rugged, dependable VHF and UHF base station antennas has been worrisome to many on the LMR side", noted Gary Tootle, Wavelink Antenna's Director of Sales.

Unfortunately, antenna failures seldom occur when it's convenient to make repairs or effect a replacement. It may take days, weeks, or sometimes even months to identify and make repairs to a compromised communications system.
For VHF and UHF operators seeking high performance, reliability and long-term durability, Wavelink Antenna offers the Professional Grade suite of folded dipole antennas hand-crafted with the same attention to detail as their proven PRO grade yagi line. Each dipole junction is fully welded; the entire folded dipole design incorporates a tuned, internal cable harness so just the 5' pigtail is exposed.

"The combination of heavy gauge aluminum components, innovative design and precision manufacturing virtually eliminates all potential intermod or misalignment problems" stated Mr. Tootle. "For any system operator looking for a 'no-fail' solution in either VHF or UHF, these dipole arrays set the standard".

VHF models are available in either ¼ or ½ wave dipole-to-mast spacing, and are offered in 1,2 and 4 bay configurations. Operating ranges are 138-174 MHz and 216-235 MHz.

UHF series antennas are available in either ¼ or ½ wave dipole-to-mast spacing, and they too are offered in 1,2 and 4 bay configurations. Operating range is 403-470 MHz.

Wavelink Professional Grade antennas feature:

  • Aircraft quality 6061-T6 aluminum frame.
  • TIG welded construction providing optimum strength and complete electrical unity.
  • Precision machining on state-of-the-art CNC equipment to ensure perfect consistency.
  • Type II Black anodized finish helps reduce ice build up on the dipoles and protects the antenna against environmental degradation.
  • 5 year Professional Grade warranty

  • Wavelink Antenna Systems Ltd. is a Calgary, Canada based manufacturer of Premium Quality antennas and related accessories. Current products include Professional Grade Yagi, Omni Directional, Folded Dipole and Grid antennas.
