The OE-416A/SRC antenna group is a twin-whip antenna system which provides broadband coverage in the 4 - 30 MHz frequency range for HF shipboard receiving systems. The antenna system consists of two 14 foot spun aluminum antennas, a coaxial cable termination box, and an interconnecting wire-rope mechanism.
The system is intended for use on an OA-9242(V)4/SR tilt mechanism. The antennas used in the system are self supporting tapered aluminum tubes with a fibreglass insulator and mounting base.
The termination box J-3152B/SRC contains three main components:
- a bowl insulator
- a coaxial type LC input connector for interconnection to associated receiving equipment
- a fixed static-charged resistor
EMP protection is also provided.
The system has been qualified to MIL-S-901C for for shock, MIL-STD-167 for Type 1 vibration, and all the service conditions of MIL-E-16400.
