Log-periodic directional antenna consisting of R&S®HL024A1 and two broadband preamplifiers for horizontal and vertical polarization

The directional R&S®HL024S8 consists of the Crossed Log-Periodic Antenna R&S®HL024A1 and two broadband preamplifiers. It is suitable for the reception of linearly polarized waves.


Connectors are provided for simultaneous use of both polarization planes.


The preamplifiers can be optionally switched on. They prevent a significant reduction in S/N due to loss in RF cables connecting, for instance, the antenna to a receiver.


The antenna can also be used as a feed for the SHF Directional Antenna Systems R&S®AC090 to R&S®AC300.
