Product Overview

Southwest Antennas Part # 1065-039 is a left hand circularly polarized (LHCP) directional patch antenna that is designed to be light weight and easily worn and hidden in tactical clothing such as vests or MOLLE gear. This body worn antenna is ideal for use in multi-antenna MIMO / MANET radio applications such as handheld and small form factor body worn tactical radios.

The antenna's directional LHCP radiation pattern and axial ratio below 3 dB offers robust network connections, and allows radios to connect even when not directly facing one another or within clear line-of-site. With an operating frequency range covering 4.4 - 5.0 GHz the design offers excellent performance for radios operating in DoD and federal law enforcement licensed bands. Extensive field testing has shown that these antennas provides superior RF performance, ensure long range radio communication links, and provide high data rate throughput when used with MANET / MIMO self-forming, self-healing radio networks, or SISO radio systems.

Weighing only 1 ounce, #1065-039 features a high performance black chrome SMA(f) RF connector and waterproof, UV stable radome that can withstand immersion in 20-meters (65.6 ft.) of salt water for two hours if the RF connector is mated or sealed with a protective end cap.

In addition to body-worn applications, the free space performance of this antenna makes it ideal for many field applications in point-to-point or multi-antenna mesh configurations, including fixed site infrastructure and mobile antenna applications.

This product is considered “Dual Use” (Non-ITAR) by the US State Department and falls outside of Code of Federal Regulations title 22 (CFR) parts 120-130.
