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.
The Ultra-Flex sealed spring base allows the antenna to bend and flex if impacted by another object, helping to protect the antenna and mated RF connector from damage, with a weatherproof seal providing protection from rain, dust, mud, and other debris that could foul the antenna's spring. Complete technical specifications are available on the product page.
