Sealed Amphenol BNC connector for RF output

Standard 1/4" internal thread for antenna mounting

Sealed mechanical construction with IP65 rating

Main features

Wideband operation

Wideband operation 470-700 MHz

Standard whip antennas are tuned in to relatively narrow band and users need to change antenna according to actual working bandwidth of their wireless system to achieve good reception.

The BOWTIE antenna structure brings working bandwidth 470-700 MHz,
so you can be always sure your antenna is receiving as many signal as possible and you can take care of other things when shooting.

Inbult 700 MHz low pass filter

Inbuilt 700 MHz low pass filter

Today's RF spectrum is full of signals which can cause intermodulation and decrease range of your wireless system. These signals can be LTE - high speed mobile internet (now starts to occupy spectrum above 700 MHz), then 3G, GSM, bluetooth and WiFi to name a few.

BOWTIE has an inbuilt 700 MHz low pass filter which can effective remove these signals before first active parts in the receiver.
