Product Overview

Southwest Antennas Part # 1032-044 is an Omni-directional bifilar antenna with an operational frequency of 5.30 - 5.95 GHz and 4.0 dBic peak gain. The antenna's bifilar design and right-hand circular polarization (RHCP) make it ideal for communication with overhead aircraft or UAVs due to the lack of keyhole null in the antenna's radiation pattern. This product features an integrated RF bandpass filter to help eliminate interference from co-located radios operating outside of the antenna's 5.30 - 5.95 GHz operational frequency range, providing increased performance for attached radios.

Part # 1032-044 features Southwest Antenna's rugged Ultra-Flex sealed spring base, allowing the antenna to bend and flex upon impact, reducing the risk of damage to the mated RF connector. The sealed spring allows for operation in all environments, keeping the spring free of rain, dust, dirt, mud, sand, and other contaminants.
