Horn antennas characteristically provide significant directivity and gain. While horns are capable antennas they are also used as gain standards and feeds for parabolic dish antennas. Horns are commonly used in applications operating at microwave frequencies, specifically the UHF (300 MHz to 3 GHz) range.
Existing horn models start at 150 MHz and reach 15 GHz. All models are available in linear or circular polarization. To avoid specialization, automated variable polarization systems are available.
HO-90-24 Horn Antenna
The HO-90-24 antenna is a small, high-power directional antenna that covers the 8.2 to 12.4 GHz range. The operating frequency of this antenna make it ideal for RADAR, motion detection, space/satellite communication and amateur radio applications.
The HO-284-24 is a mid-size horn antenna that operatesfrom 2.6 to 3.9 GHz. Contact a TMC Design representative for details on mounting solutions that are available for proper setup of this medium sized antenna.
The TMC HO-430-10-HH antenna is the latest addition to our hand held, direction-finding (DF) antennas. This S-Band DF antenna is ideal for testing or real-life DF scenarios. The antenna is mounted on two ergonomic grips for easy handling and quick results.
The HO-430-24 antenna is a large, high-power antenna that is designed to perform at frequencies from 1.7 to 2.6 GHz. Mounting and installation should be thoroughly considered for this 6′ antenna. Contact a TMC Design sales representative for possible mount solutions and installation services that are available.
The HO-650-24 is a large horn antenna designed to operate in the 1.12 to 1.70 GHz range. The antenna is over 8 feet at its prime dimension and weighs 320 lbs. Contact a TMC Design representative for a details on mounting solutions that are available for proper setup of an antenna of this stature.
The HO-1200-15, HO-2450-15 and HO-4925-13 horn antennas operate from 150 to 940 MHz. The low frequency capability of these antennas consequently determines their large physical profile. To mitigate handling issues inherent with such large, cumbersome antennas they have been designed to function with ruggedized, military-grade trailers for easy positioning and maneuverability. The inclusion of a trailer provides a platform for incorporating operational enhancements to the antenna. The trailers allow the antenna to be transported over roads and highways at speeds up to 55 MPH. Four (4) stowable stabilizer jacks on the trailer ensure a level and proper position during system operation. An integrated rotary system is also included that will re-position the antenna for vertical or horizontal polarized transmissions. In addition, all trailer models come with weather-proof storage cases with 24.5 cubic ft. carrying capacity.
