ETV Series Circularly Polarized Broadband VHF Panel Antenna Systems

The Electronics Research ETV Series high band VHF television antennas is a circularly polarized high band VHF panel antenna element. As with all ERI antenna systems these panel elements can be designed to mount on existing towers or supplied with integrated top or side mounted spines. Systems are available in configurations for three (3) curtain (for triangular towers) or four (4) curtain (for square towers) arrays. The elements and full arrays can be configured and optimized for a single high band VHF television channel, 174 MHz to 216 MHz, or be optimized to cover the entire channel span from 7 to 13 and handle multiple television signals in a single system. ERI can also provide channel combiners as a part of a complete system.

The circularly polarized ETV Series antenna includes a full radome enclosure to protect the element from snow and ice and to reduce wind area, which reduces tower loading. The panels are rated to 5 kilowatts, average power, per element and include a single 1-5/8-inch EIA flanged RF inputs. These panel antenna systems can be designed to mount on existing customer owned towers or supplied with integrated mounting spines that are fabricated by ERI.

ERI’s ability to design and fabricate structural components and the company’s manufactured transmission line products and RF components gives the company unique abilities to provide panel antenna systems as turnkey packages. The company services can also include delivery, off-loading, antenna and transmission line installation, and system acceptance testing. ERI also has a staff of structural engineers that can provide complete tower analysis services and design and manufacture any required tower reinforcement material and the associated installation services.

ERI approaches the opportunity to provide television panel antenna systems as custom applications of its standard manufactured product. Every customer requirement is reviewed individually and a suitable combination of components is assembled and proposed in order to best meet individual needs and application requirements. Contact ERI to have a system configured for your unique and special requirements.
