Mobile Antenna 3086

Mobile antenna 3086

Mobile antenna 3086

The 3086 vehicle antenna  is designed to work with mobile radiotelephones operating in frequency ranges: 144 ÷ 174 MHz, 380 ÷ 470 MHz.
This is a low profile antenna, which is adapted for installation on any motor vehicle, with a particular recommendation in those cases, where the antenna height  can not exceed 160 mm (for example: trains, buses, construction equipment). The aluminum antenna is located in a dielectric cover, made of mechanical resistant plastic, strengthened by a glass fiber.

Operating conditions:

Antenna should be mounted to the metal bodywork of a vehicle (conductive surface), which is the “ground plane”  for the antenna. Mounting of the antenna on a metal surface with minimal dimensions: 900x1200 mm (for the 160 MHz range) or 400x500 mm (for the 450 MHz range) is required for its proper operation. The place of mounting of the antenna needs to be close to the center of the largest horizontal plane of vehicle’s metal bodywork or close to the center of the whole structure of a vehicle. This way of installation ensures correct antenna impedance and a horizontal radiation pattern closest to circular.. The hole in a vehicle’s bodywork of a diameter of Φ 21,2 mm. is required for installation of the antenna.
During the installation it is particularly important to ensure a galvanic contact between the antenna base (shield of a coaxial cable supplying the antenna ) and the bodywork of a vehicle. In the frequency range 144 ÷ 174 MHz the antenna is tunable by cutting of a radiator to ensure the desired length. In the 380÷470 MHz band antenna operates broad-band without tuning.
