S-band High Gain Antenna - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hello,

We are looking for and S-band (2200 - 2300 MHz) dish antenna with a minimum gain of 35 dBi and G/T of minimum 12 dB/K at a 10 degree elevation. Antenna diameter should be about 3 m.

I Googled for some S-band antennas but, did not find anything that came close to these specs. This is for a satellite application.

If anyone has any information about where we could source such an antenna, please let us know.

Thanks and regards,

Abhishek

Try
1 The world's virtual monopoly supplier of Satcom Earth Station Antennas (if you must) Andrew Corporation
2 RFS (part of Alcatel)
3 GTE = Comelit or Cellwave divisions

PMS Antennas in the UK was recently bought by Andrew 8-(

The thing about satcom (tranmitting) earth station antennas is they must be Type Approved by the satellite service provider, so you cannot just buy a dish of the right spec and hope it will be acceptable.
