The 146CP14 is a light weight, circularly polarized antenna optimized for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications or other applications where a small circular polarized antenna is required. Optimum match and gain are between 144 & 151 MHz for the satellite band. A preamp can be mounted close to the antenna for almost no coax loss before the preamp, maximizing your receive performance. Computer design techniques help keep spurious side lobes low down for optimum signal to noise ratios. This antenna features the same CNC machined, O-ring and silicone-gel sealed, driven element assemblies common to all M2 Yagi antennas. This insures years of trouble free performance regardless of weather.
