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

Skyware Global Type 243 2.4M Ku-Band Tx/Rx Class III Cross-Pol Antenna

Tx Frequency: 13.75 – 14.50 GHzRx Frequency: 10.70 – 12.75 GHzFiberglass ReflectorAz/El mount with fine azimuth, and elevation adjustment and 6.63″ (168mm) mast pipe interfaceFeed Support and Feed Horn assembly with Orthomode Transducer (OMT) and Transmit-Reject Filter (TRF)Intelsat Approved; Reference Bulletin PA-100572

The Skyware Global Type 243 2.4M Class III Tx/Rx Antenna is a rugged commercial grade product suitable for the most demanding applications. The reflector is thermoset-molded for strength and surface accuracy. Molded into the rear of the reflector is a network of support ribs which not only strengthens the antenna, but also helps to maintain its 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 and prevent slippage in high winds. Hot-dip galvanizing is standard for maximum environmental protection.
