The 220 Repeater Antenna:
The Telewave ANT220D -Folded Dipole Antenna 216-252 MHz, consists of single element dipole antenna with a precision phasing harness for optimum performance. The antenna horizontal pattern is field-adjustable, for any current or future coverage requirements. The wide bandwidth and high efficiency of these antennas make them ideal for many applications, including wireless PTC, trunking, business, public safety, and amateur radio.
Each dipole element is constructed with 6061-T6 aluminum, and welded at the base for maximum strength. Each antenna is also completely sealed with our high-tech Txylan™ coating, which resists water and ice buildup, and provides exceptional protection from corrosive gases, UV radiation, salt spray, acid rain and windblown abrasives. The phasing harness is fully sealed by Telewave’s Millenium Seal™ technology.
All components are at DC ground potential for lightning protection.
The picture on the left is a picture of the 220 Repeater and the 2 meter repeater at the site. The outer shell of the 2 meter repeater was taken off to place the 220 repeater in a rack with the 2 meter repeater. On top is the BridgeCom 220 repeater and the 220 duplexers are standing on top of the rack. Below is a full picture of the rack and the tower.
