1.8M FLY-AWAY ANTENNA - Download spec sheets

The UC-180-FWA Flyaway antenna is designed to meet international performance requirements for DSNG applications and is available in C and Ku band frequencies.

The portable antenna consists of a four pieces segmented Glass Fiber Reinforced Molded reflector and all aluminium tripod base mounts. UC-180-FWA is a durable, corrosion resistant antenna with superior stability and high performance
under wind loading conditions. The SMC compression molded reflector surface provides good side lobes and cross-polarization performance, with excellent repeatability. Reflector is reinforced with aluminium and composite ribs to maintain a precise shape and guaranteed performance.
