(12 ft.) Diameter Class Antennas
Specifically Designed for Small 12 ft. Size Antennas
AFC's dual beam systems are designed specifically for AFC's PR-12 antenna or may be called out for other manufacturers' type antennas. Based on the theory of overmoded dielectric filled waveguide feeds, users can upgrade their feed to receive high quality 2 degree signals. The two feeds are free of any spurious effects, preserve polarization purity and optimize antenna pattern.
Installation of a new dual beam retrofit upgrade kit requires the replacement of the legs and brackets of the feed support hardware. The retrofit kit comes furnished with all necessary hardware for a durable, weather-tight installation. The retrofit system provides isolation between beams better than 20 dB with a loss of only about 0.25 dB at 2 degrees. Cross-polar discrimination is typically better than 16 dB.
AFC manufactures 3.7, 5 and 7 meter antennas, multi-sat feeds and dual beam retrofits. Antenna pedestal options include high wind mounts. Contact AFC sales for alternatives to fit your needs.
AFC also manufactures, markets and sells worldwide satellite dish antennas, conical horn antennas, radomes, antenna feeds, microwave and waveguide components, ultra low loss waveguide transmission line Tallguide ®, and custom shelters. Our customers serve the satellite, broadcast, communications, radar, weather and cable industry, defense, government, and government agencies worldwide.
