The Electronics Research ETV-H Series high band VHF television antenna is a horizontally polarized high band VHF panel antenna element which is supplied as a system. 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. Both models 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 horizontally polarized ETV Series antenna elements are constructed from rugged galvanized steel and include UV protected ABS radomes to protect the element feed points from weather and debris. The panels are rated to 5 kilowatts, average power, per element and includes a single 1-5/8-inch EIA flanged RF input. 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.
