Broadband directional antenna with down converter

The R&S®HF907DC SHF Directional Antenna with Down Converter combines two key features into a single product:


It extends the frequency range of portable receivers (e.g. R&S®PR100) up to 18 GHz

It allows localization of transmitters or interfering sources by utilizing the distinct directional pattern of a log.- periodic antenna. This is achieved by directing the antenna manually toward the direction of maximum receive signal voltage

The operating frequency range is downconverted to the range below 7.5 GHz in two switchable frequency bands. Preselection filters for each band suppress image frequency and IF breakthrough.


Due to the use of a rechargeable battery, the antenna is suitable for mobile applications.
