ERI’s 1190 Series FM Panel Antenna Systems are designed to combine the benefits of wideband performance and versatility with low weight and wind load, giving broadcasters a competitive edge in coverage performance in an antenna that can be deployed economically. Available power handling up to 150 kW makes the 1190 an excellent choice for single station applications, for large faced towers or challenging directional antenna patterns.

The 1190 is ruggedly built, from galvanized and stainless steel, and is designed to withstand many years of service in a harsh environment. The design incorporates ERI’s field-proven cross dipole elements for circularly polarized operation. The 1190 element features an integrated hybrid power divider that feeds the left and right slant dipoles, in proper phase, from a single input – this simplifies the antenna feed system and improves reliability. Antenna system components are custom-selected to optimize azimuth and elevation pattern performance while minimizing weight and wind load for each specific requirement. Excellent circularity can be achieved in the azimuth pattern for omnidirectional antenna systems, and directional patterns are also available to optimize coverage for stations licensed for directional operation.

Icing protection is achieved with the use of a fiberglass balun cover. The small surface area of this cover is largely responsible for the low wind load of this antenna.

ERI’s engineers work to design each 1190 Series FM Panel Antenna System to address the specific circumstances of its application, including both electrical and structural aspects. Our goal is to provide you with high performance, design flexibility, reliability, and affordability and, at ERI, we have the experience and expertise to satisfy your most challenging requirements.
