Tactical Foldable LPDA Antenna


The LPDA-A0161 is medium-gain tactical wideband directional LPDA antenna and covers the frequency band from 30 MHz to 88 MHz. brThis antenna has foldable elements and sectional boom which makes the antenna easy to stow, deploy and transport. There are no loose parts and no tools required to deploy the antenna. This makes the antenna ideal for tactical applications as well as for use in harsh environments and installations where there is limited space for operators to manoeuvre.brAll antenna elements are permanently attached to the boom, to prevent any parts from becoming lost in the field.
