RFS Gets Ahead Of Repack With Added Antennae


In anticipation of the coming U.S. broadcast repack initiative resulting from the FCC spectrum incentive auction, Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has expanded its North America UHF slotted array antenna line.

The antennae incorporate existing slot design technology in new single or dual channel fixed polarization applications. RFStar antennas are available in horizontal, elliptical and circular polarizations and are designed for ATSC1.0 or ATSC3.0 standards.

“Broadcasters are facing major challenges and are worried about the supply of appropriately rated antennas in a timely fashion,” said William Brooks, regional product line manager for broadcast products at RFS. “The rollout of the new RFStar is part of our continued commitment to provide the antennas they’ll need to make the transition as smooth as possible.”

RFStar antennas are available as a center or end-fed design with standard or customized azimuth patterns and multiple elevation patterns.

Each design comes with varying degrees of null fill, beam tilt as well as a selection of mounting options.

All are enclosed in a radome.

RFS serves OEMs, distributors, system integrators, operators and installers in the broadcast, wireless communications, land-mobile and microwave market sectors.
