Wideband VHF/UHF Airborne Blade Antenna
20 to 500 MHz
The 21-50-03 is a vertically polarized, omni-directional antenna, compatible with airborne receivers operating within the 20 to 500 MHZ frequency range. This antenna is passively matched and requires no external tuning.
This wideband, multi-function antenna developed by Cooper Antennas Ltd is particularly suited for use in VHF/UHF arrays. Rugged design ensures reliability in world wide conditions of service on helicopters and subsonic aircraft.
Use of frequency selective matching optimizes efficiency and provides omnidirectional radiation throughout the operating frequency range. Unique element shaping preserves elevation pattern throughout frequency band.
