Monitoring antennas

Monitoring antennas from Rohde & Schwarz

Highly sensitive monitoring antennas capture even the weakest signals

Rohde & Schwarz monitoring antennas combine very high sensitivity with high gain up to 44 GHz, to capture even the weakest signals in a wide dynamic range.

Their outstanding electrical performance, sturdy design and low weight ensure easy handling, making them ideal for stationary or mobile monitoring under extreme outdoor conditions. We can also tailor monitoring antennas to customer requirements. Rohde & Schwarz offers a full portfolio of monitoring antennas, including handheld, directional and omnidirectional stationary, directional and omnidirectional mobile and semi-mobile antennas, along with any necessary accessories.
