Broadband conical monopole antenna

May 12, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
The BCM40 antenna from Heuermann HF-Technik (HHF) is a very low loss conical monopole antenna, manufactured precisely enough to operate at frequencies up to 40 GHz, offering good matching and an antenna gain of 0 dBi.

This antenna covers all major frequency bands with a broadband frequency band of 1.2 to 40 GHz. The robust casing allows for indoor and outdoor use even in moist conditions.

Modern radio communication utilizes different frequency bands. Common antennas provide acceptable performance only in narrow frequency bands, requiring the user to change antennas when changing the frequency band. For broadband monitoring purposes, an array of different antennas is thus required.

The BCM40 antenna eliminates the need for different antennas in a frequency band from 1.2 to 40 GHz. The omnidirectional characteristic of the BCM40 allows the controlling of rooms and outdoor areas in a broadband spectrum.
