The VAS-2030 HF dipole antenna is a rugged, self-supporting vertically polarized broadband antenna covering the frequency range of 20 to 30 MHz. This general purpose antenna can be used in the transmit or receive mode.
The antenna is designed to withstand the severe environmental conditions encoutnered aboard naval ships. The antenna radiating elements are housed in a single piece fibreglass radome with an integral fibreglass mounting flange.
The antenna can handle 1800 Watts peak envelope power and 1000 Watts average RF power over the entire frequency range. It has a VSWR of less than 2.5:1 over the 20-30 MHz band.
The antenna has been qualified to MIL-S-901C for shock, MIL-STD-167 TYPE 1 vibration and all the service conditions of MIL-E-16400.
