The Skyware Global Type 183 1.8 m 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 sustain the critical parabolic shape necessary for transmit performance.
The Az/El mount is constructed from heavy-gauge steel to provide rigid support to the reflector and feed support arm. Heavy-duty lockdown bolts secure the mount to any 4.50″ (114 mm) O.D. mast and prevent slippage in high winds.
Hot-dip galvanizing is standard on this model for maximum environmental protection. A marinized version of this antenna is also available making it suitable for on-shore and offshore marine environments.
