S-band High Gain Antenna - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including 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.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
