TCI Model 524
Super High Gain Log-Periodic Antenna
Highly reliable communications on long-range circuits require antennas with high power gain at low take-off angles. Techniques developed at TCI now achieve this with smaller structures than previously possible.
The Model 524 is a single-curtain antenna utilizing the clamped mode fattened radiator design. The antenna is three half wavelengths wide, resulting in a dramatic increase in the broadside radiating aperture. The antenna gain is 15.5 dBi minimum, 16 dBi nominal and the azimuth beamwidth is 38°. On a long point-to-point circuit where wide azimuth coverage is not required, this antenna provides reliable communications with a single antenna curtain.
For even higher gain log-periodic solutions, see TCI Models 527 and 527B.
