CXL 230-3LW/DAB

Lightweight, 3 dBd BAse Station and Marine Antenna for the DAB Band

  • CXL 230-3LW/DAB is a vertically polarised, omnidirectional base station and marine antenna, which covers the DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast) Band.
  • Approximately 3 dBd gain.

DESCRIPTION

  • Provided with the sturdy “LW” mast mount – a lightweight, multipurpose,
    epoxy-coated mounting bracket made of non-corrosive aluminium.
  • The accompanying U-bolts and fittings are made of stainless steel.
  • To be mounted on vertical or horizontal mast tubes, 16 to 54 mm in outer diameter.
  • The cable can be led either on the outside or along the inside of the mast tube.
  • Large bandwidth with respect to both SWR and gain.
  • The phasing of the radiating elements is adjusted to yield maximum gain in the horizontal plane, with the level of the sidelobes reduced to a minimum.
  • The carefully designed, broad-banded antenna element is sealed in a high-quality conical glass fibre tube with low wind-load, which will ensure performance undisturbed by corrosive environments.
  • All metal parts in the antenna are DC-grounded to reduce the noise caused by atmospherical discharge. Consequently, the antenna shows a DC-short across the coaxial cable.
  • The CXL 230-3LW/DAB is a vibration-proof, lightweight, slim-line, corrosion resistant, modern style base station and marine antenna.
