RADS 9-11/A1

Rapid Antenna Deployment System for Amateur Radio EmComm

 

The RADS 9-11/A1 is a combination U/VHF-HF/NVIS man-portable antenna system, specifically designed and priced for Amateur Radio EmComm.  It covers the 144, 220 and 440 MHz Amateur U/VHF bands, plus all adjacent public safety bands and the 80/75, 60, 40, 30 and 20 meter Amateur HF bands.  It is complete with everything needed, including coax with UHF-type connectors.  It will handle up to 200 watts carrier on U/VHF and up to 100 watts P.E.P. on HF.   Additional HF frequencies maybe covered with the purchase of optional whip resonators.  Other options are available, such as HF wire dipole kits for other HF bands, MARS/CAP and other frequencies.  An Extended mast kit is also available that raises the standard 12 foot mast to 24 feet.  The included 25 foot U/VHF and 25 foot HF feed lines are double-shielded, low-loss RG8X w/UHF-type connectors.  An optional Extension kit is available (required w/extended mast), that extends both feed lines an additional 25 feet; for an overall length of 50 feet each.

 

RADS 9-11/A2

Rapid Antenna Deployment System for Amateur Radio EmComm

 

The RADS 9-11/A2 is really NOT a complete antenna system but rather, an add-on system for the RADS 9-11/A1.  It includes a mounting kit for allowing the mast mounting of a user supplied electronic tuner such as the SGC SG-237, Yaesu FC-40 or Icom AH-4 model tuners.  Also included, is a separate carry bag for the tuner, its mounting kit and control lines.  The addition of the RADS 9-11/A2 to a RADS 9-11/A1 basically converts it to a RADS 9-11/A3 system.  Other options are also available.  Contact us for a current listing.

 

RADS 9-11/A3

The RADS 9-11/G2 is a U/VHF only, man-portable antenna system designed for use by federal, state and local government agencies and the military.  It is similar to the RADS 9-1/G1 but incorporates the following: 

-          U/VHF coverage at up to 200 watts carrier on 130-180 MHz, 200-225 and 430-480 MHz with one 50 foot coax feed line and choice of any two connector types on the station end. 

-          U/VHF coverage at up to 100 watts carrier on 750-950 MHz, 1.8 GHz (GSM), 1.9 GHz (PCS), 3.5-3.6 GHz (WiMAX), 4.9GHz (Government) and all 5 GHz (WiFi) bands with separate 50 foot coax feed line and choice of any two connector types on the station end.

-          VHF-Low Band coverage of any three channels in the 30-50 MHz range at up to 200 watts carrier with separate 50 feet coax feed line and choice of any one connector type.

 

Options include replacement of the primary U/VHF antenna element to include not only 130-180, 200-225 and 430-480 MHz at up to 200 watts carrier, but also both the civil aviation (108-139 MHz at up to 50 watts) and military aviation (225-400 MHz) band to 25 watts carrier.  This includes both military SATCOM and HAVEQUICK coverage.

  

RADS 9-11/G3

Rapid Antenna Deployment System for Military/Government EmComm

 

The RADS 9-11/G3 is a U/VHF & HF combination, man-portable antenna system designed for use by federal, state and local government agencies and the military.  It has the same U/VHF coverage as the G2 but includes HF coverage of 1.6 to 60 MHz at up to 150 watts P.E.P.  The HF wire element can also be used as a secondary U/VHF gain antenna, well into the UHF range to a maximum of 100 watts carrier.  It includes both HF and U/VHF, 25 foot/7.62 meter coax feed lines with type-N connectors and N-type to BNC captive adaptors on the station end.  Options include 25 foot/7.62 meter extension coax feed lines and HF wire element extensions for increased efficiency at lower HF frequencies and additional gain on higher HF frequencies.  It allows three deployment configurations for LOS/NVIS HF, NVIS/Medium-range HF and BLOS Long-range HF shots and is ideal for use with the PRC-150, 117F and similar radio systems.  This one system does the job of up to four separate antenna systems and allows full function of both present-day and legacy radio systems in the 150 watt range.  It is the ideal augmentation system for vehicle  whip antennas ATH and TOC use, or as emergency backup to larger, permanent antenna systems that could be damaged in disaster situations.  Custom modifications and other options are available.  Please contact us for details.

 

RADS 9-11/G4
