This biconical antenna operates in the 1 GHz to 6 GHz frequency range and features a dipole-like radiation pattern, the ability to be used as a transmitting or receiving antenna, and a three year warranty. This antenna is ideal for use as a transmit source antenna for site validations above 1 GHz for radiated emissions test site like OATS (open area test sites), anechoic, and semi-anechoic chambers.
The SAS-547 Biconical Antenna operates in the 1 GHz to 18 GHz frequency range, and is ideal for broadband field monitoring applications.
For many years most standards called for the use of a half-wave dipole antenna set for frequencies above 80 MHz. However, to reduce test time, broadband antennas such as the biconical antenna and log periodic antennas began to be accepted.
