Southwest Antennas is pleased to announce that a select line of our most popular antenna products are now available for purchase from Amazon, with support for Prime 2-Day shipping.

As B2B and Government purchasing continues to evolve, Southwest Antennas strives to make sure our products are available through channels that best suit the diverse needs of our customer base and the purchasing preferences of different sized organizations.

Southwest Antennas has released a new Ultra-Flex omni-directional dipole antenna for low L-Band applications, featuring a black chrome TNC(f) RF connector.

Part # 1001-210 has an operational frequency range from 1.0 - 1.5 GHz, covering popular lower L-Band frequencies including military and DOD use, and features 2.15 dBi of peak gain.

New $10,000 limit proposed for civilian agencies

Earlier this year new rules were proposed for government credit card purchases. Section 806 of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act increases the micropurchase threshold for products purchased by civilian agencies from $3,000 to $10,000.

This follows the increase in 2017 for DoD purchases from $3,500 to $5,000.

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!

Happy Independence Day from Southwest Antennas
