Skyware Global Antenna 2.4m Tx/Rx C-Band Linear Type 243 Class III

Skyware Global Antenna 2.4m Tx/Rx C-Band LinearType 243 Class III Antenna

The Skyware Global Antenna 2.4m Tx/Rx C-Band Linear Type 243 Class III Antenna is a rugged commercial grade product suitable for the most demanding applications. The two piece reflector is thermoset-molded for strength and surface accuracy. Molded into the rear of each reflector half is a network of support ribs which not only strengthens the antenna, but also helps to sustain the critical parabolic shape necessary for transmit performance.

The Az/El mount is constructed from heavy-gauge steel to provide a rigid support to the reflector and feed support arm. Heavy-duty lockdown bolts secure the mount to any 6.63″ (168 mm) O.D. mast to prevent slippage in high winds. Hot-dip galvanizing is standard for maximum environmental protection.
