San Diego, California, April 20, 2020 - Southwest Antennas, a leader in rugged RF and Microwave antenna products and accessories for tactical radio systems, is pleased to announce the release of two new antennas to meet the demand for multi-port MIMO antenna solutions for medium range aircraft performing ISR missions. These antennas are built off of Southwest Antennas' existing, field-proven MIMO antenna technology with design improvements specifically for these new mission requirements.

Our engineering team has added a new flange mount base for secure mounting, in addition to reinforcing the antennas for the higher altitude and airspeed achieved by medium range military turboprop aircraft that are commonly used for surveillance, patrol, search and rescue, and transport operations.

With a conservative airspeed rating of up to 374 MPH these MIMO antennas can be utilized by aircraft, helicopters, or large UAV systems. Easily add aircraft into your tactical MIMO radio network with our compact, easy-to-install antenna solution.

Available in both 2.1 -2.5 GHz S-Band and 4.4 – 5.0 GHz C-Band versions, these antennas are rated for 50 Watts of RF input power per port, and are available with 4 RF ports for use with 4x4 MIMO radio systems.

Full specifications can be viewed for both products on the Southwest Antennas website:

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
