The “SHF 2328” model is the ideal start-up antenna for 1.3 GHz (23cms)
The antenna is only 1.5 m long and yet has 16 dBd gain.
Mechanical construction is almost identical to the other SHF-antennas. The electrical characteristics are very simolar to the SHF long yagis (SHF2344 and SHF2367) except for the 3-dB beamwidth is wider and the gain slightly less.
The antennas have an very high f/b ratio because of the use of 8 reflectors. This is in particularly important for high-gain yagis where even the highest gain is useless if unwanted signals or interference is being received from the back side of the antenna.
EME or SAT users enjoy our antennas due to the low backward noise scatter (from the surface of the earth).
All nuts, bolts and washers are manufactured of stainless steel. For those antennas with support strut also the mast clamp itself is made of stainless steel.
The antennas are delivered with passive elements all pre-mounted. The entire antenna can be assembled in about 10 minutes; you don’t have to read the manual (which is provided of course…) and it does not take an engineering approach to install the antenna and get into the air…
- Elements automatically cut, length tolerance less than max. 0.1 mm
- Elements are exactly centered and automatically mounted by robot
- Non-compromise dipole: N-connector, balun made of semi-rigid cable, all connectors sealed, connection box additionally filled.
