Southwest Antennas has released a new C-Band bifilar antenna featuring Left Hand Circular Polarization.

Part # 1032-041 offers 4.4 - 5.9 GHz frequency band coverage and 3.75 dBic of gain. The bifilar antenna design makes this antenna ideal for communication with airborne vehicles such as airplanes, helicopters, and UAVs due to its circular polarization and complete overhead pattern coverage above the antenna.

Southwest Antennas has added two new cavity band pass filters to our lineup of RF accessory products. These band pass filters are designed for S-Band applications and feature >60 dB out of band isolation.

Cavity band pass filters are deployed when more aggressive filtering is needed for a system in order to minimize disruptive RF signals from degrading system performance. A band pass filter works by allowing a specific frequency band to "pass" through the system while working to attenuate RF energy above and below the desired frequency range.

Southwest Antennas would like to wish all of our customers and vendors a happy and safe Independence Day! Our office will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th in observance of the holiday.

We will return calls and emails when our office reopens on July 5th. Thank you!

Southwest Antennas has released two new antennas to our bifilar product line, covering popular operational frequency ranges in the S and C Bands.

Bifilar antennas have several benefits owing to the helical design of the antenna elements:

Ideal for Military and Federal Law Enforcement Applications

Southwest Antennas offers a variety of directional and omni antenna options in the upper L-Band, primarily used from 1,780 MHz to 1,850 MHz for DoD / military and federal law enforcement applications. While frequency band reallocation has moved some users away from this frequency, we continue to provide robust product solutions for the remaining user groups.

1,780 - 1,850 MHz (Band 181) applications include:

Southwest Antennas has just released a new antenna design that combines both the sealed spring base from our Ultra-Flex antenna line with a 3.5" diameter flange mount base.

These features give the antenna some great properties:
