Portable Antenna Kit





100 Hz to 1.0 GHz





The DSI Model R-1150-10A Portable Antenna Kit contains eight antenna to support electronic field strength measurements from 100MHz to 1GHz and magnetic field strength measurements from 100 Hz to 30 MHz. The antennas are suitable for shielded enclosure or general field use. The Kit contained in a luggage type fitted transit case.

The Antenna Kit includes passive Biconical and log periodic antennas as well as six active antennas. The active antennas consist of four H-field antennas which connect to a Base Unit containing preamplified filter and control devices.

A Control Unit supplies power to the Base Unit and permits selection of the filters. Rechargeable batteries in the Control Unit permit up to 10 hours of operation away from an AC power source.

Detailed antenna factors and sensitivity charts are supplied with the Antenna Kit.
