AL PLUS Series Low and Medium Power UHF Television Antennas

The AL PLUS Series antennas are available in eight and twelve bay models and in a variety of azimuth patterns. The antenna is a coaxial slotted array design that yields excellent azimuth and elevation pattern performance. Models are available with horizontal, circular, and elliptical polarization. The AL PLUS UHF television antenna line satisfies the antenna requirements of many Part 74 television translators, low power and Class A television stations and single frequency networks. The antenna is a compact, end fed, design that includes a radome slot cover for icing and moisture protection. The AL PLUS is available in 8 and 12 bay models and versions have been developed for low and medium power applications. The antenna is suitable for either analog or digital broadcast applications.
