Passive broadband receiving dipole for linearly polarized signals and high field strengths

The extremely wide bandwidth plus the high sensitivity make the R&S®HK309 particularly suitable for reception tasks in communication, reconnaissance and measurements.


Compact design, minimum expenditure for distribution and switching and a high S/N ratio are essential features for these applications.


The broadband characteristic of the Receiving Dipole R&S®HK309 is ensured by eight impedance elements which generate travelling waves on the antenna and suppress nulls in the radiation pattern.
