R&S®HE400BC Antenna

Basic Handheld Directional Antenna

  • Overview

Key facts

  • Unambiguous direction finding – i.e. distinct directional pattern with maximum at boresight in the VHF, UHF and SHF frequency range
  • Handy size despite extreme broadband capability
  • Supports horizontal and vertical polarization in the entire frequency range

Features

The R&S®HE400BC basic handheld directional antenna is primarily intended for locating transmitters and interference sources. The direction of signal sources can be found by pointing the antenna towards the direction of maximum signal strength.

Specifications

Model Frequency range
R&S®HE400BC 8.3 kHz to 8 GHz

Key facts

  • Unambiguous direction finding – i.e. distinct directional pattern with maximum at boresight in the VHF, UHF and SHF frequency range
  • Handy size despite extreme broadband capability
  • Supports horizontal and vertical polarization in the entire frequency range
  • Fatigue-free operation due to the antenna design and the material used, which keep weight to a minimum.
  • Exchangeable cable between antenna and receiver

features & benefits

The R&S®HE400BC consists of an antenna handle, a cable and different antenna modules, which can be easily attached by the locking ring. Furthermore, all antenna modules can be mounted in vertical or in horizontal orientation (90 degrees rotated) to detect vertically or horizontally polarized signals. Bearing information is determined with a detachable compass.
