The correct spacing of antennas in a multi-antenna deployment is a subject that is frequently brought up by Southwest Antennas’ customers. This type of question has become more common given that multi-antenna MIMO / MANET mesh systems are now much more prevalent in the market than they were even five years ago.

With design engineers, system integrators, and end users eager to maximize the dependability and throughput of their network, it is no surprise that proper antenna spacing is a subject worth considering.

Omni-Directional Antennas for RF Congested Environments

Enhance your radio's operational capabilities in RF congested environments and help mitigate co-site interference, receiver desense, and other related system-level issues with our line of omni-directional antennas with integrated RF filters.

Southwest Antennas offers a number of mounting solutions for different configurations and use case scenarios. Here are a few examples of how our products can be used to rapidly mount and deploy antennas.

Southwest Antennas was pleased to support Drone America and the Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS) during their Bi-State, Multi-Agency Evacuation Drill, held on May 19th 2018 at the north end of Lake Tahoe.

The University of Washington recently launched a new exploratory study attempting to map the properties and movements of ocean water under the Dotson ice shelf in the western Antarctic.

Application Note: Upgrading Antennas to Improve Radio Performance


Utilizing high quality antennas is a cost effective way to upgrade the performance of an existing radio systems for better RF link margin and higher data/video throughput across many types of terrain and operating conditions.

ADS-B is an acronym for Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast, a new real-time situational awareness and surveillance program which is part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s NextGen air traffic control modernization mandate. ADS-B equipment will be used by air traffic controllers and aircraft pilots to better track active aircraft in US airspace and improve safety as more aircraft use existing routes.
