Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce our newly updated line of rugged cloverleaf omni-directional antennas. These antennas are available in both left hand and right hand circular polarization, which is ideal for air-to-ground RF links or use in multi-antenna configurations, where multiple antennas of opposite polarization are used to increase isolation between co-located antennas.

Three frequency options are available:

July 20th 2019 marks 82 years since the death of Guglielmo Marconi (25 April 1874 - 20 July 1937), one of the pioneering inventors and scientists that helped launch the field of modern radio communication.

Marconi built upon the radio transmission experiments of earlier scientist and inventors of the 1800s, such as Heinrick Hertz, Edouard Branly, Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge, and James Clerk Maxwell.

Southwest Antennas offers several rugged antenna options for use with the Link 16 tactical data link network from 969 - 1,206 MHz.

Link 16 is a military-use tactical data link network that enables the US and allied forces to share near real-time tactical information and increase battlefield situational awareness between groups in theater, including location information, text messages, pictures, voice, and data.

Ideal for vehicle-mounted application, Southwest Antennas has released a new S-Band antenna with a sealed spring and flange mount base.

Part # 1087-079 features an operational frequency range from 2.2 - 2.5 GHz, and a peak gain of 6 dBi. The weather resistant sealed spring that allows the antenna's radome to bend and flex with impact and return to its vertical operating position, helping to reduce risk of damage to the mated RF connector.

The latest issue of Unmanned Systems Technology magazine has a feature article on ground control systems which profiles one of our multi-port MIMO / MANET sector antennas (Part # 1055-330) paired with Avwatch's Mobile Tracking System.

We've just released a new version of our popular 4 dBi omni-directional antenna, with an operational frequency range of 2.2 - 2.5 GHz.

Part # 1085-225 features a rugged, low visibility matte black G10 fiberglass radome and black chrome TNC(m) RF connector, making the antenna suitable for tactical or low-visibility applications.

Our new whitepaper The Importance of RF Connector Selection in Antenna Design is now available to read and download from the Southwest Antennas website.

This general education whitepaper covers the basics of RF connectors that are commonly used in the antenna industry, including pros and cons for different applications why using high-quality RF connectors is paramount to antenna performance and ultimately the performance of the entire RF system.

QuantumFlow will Represent Southwest Antennas’ line of high-performance antennas and RF accessory products


San Diego, California, March 5, 2019 - Southwest Antennas, an industry leader in rugged RF and microwave antennas and accessory product solutions, is pleased to announce the appointment of QuantumFlow as their new authorized sales representative firm covering the territory of Southern California.

Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce our new line of stand-alone RF filter modules that can be quickly integrated into existing radio systems or added to new systems during planning and deployment.

With the increasing number of radios operating in close proximity to each other and the proliferation of communications equipment in urban and suburban environments, the addition of RF filtering to a system can help eliminate out-of-band interference that degrades radio performance.
 

Southwest Antennas has released a new omni-directional antenna for use in the 5.15 - 5.25 GHz ISM band.
