    Antennas for Surveillance applications

    The antenna is one of the most important pieces of a good receiver. Yet it seems technical specifications are made up by the Marketing Departments, not by the Engineers. Wild claims about gain and misleading data seem to be the norm. In this Demonstration you will be able to see and hear the effects of gain and have a better understanding of beamwidths and patterns. Over a dozen different antennas will be available for demonstration, and our miniature antenna range can do some quick tests on your antenna.

    Target Audience: All
