Specifications

Model Frequency range
R&S®AC008 1 GHz to 18 GHz (models .02/.04)
0.85 GHz to 26.5 GHz (model .05)

Key facts

  • 1 GHz to 18 GHz/0.85 GHz to 26.5 GHz
  • Manually steerable directional antenna for the detection of RF signals and for field-strength measurements

    The R&S®AC008 is a manually steerable directional antenna for mobile applications.

    The reflector has a diameter of 0.9 m and – depending on the feed used – receives signals in the range 1 GHz to 18 GHz or 0.85 GHz to 26.5 GHz.

    The R&S®AC008 is used for detecting radio signals and for field-strength measurements. It can also be directed toward geostationary satellites.

    The use of different feeds allows reception of any type of polarization. For transportation, the directional antenna (including the feed) can be collapsed to a handy size.
