PC Based Manual Antenna Trainer (Tx Frequency 86-860 MHz PLL + 22 Antennas + Radiation Plot Software with PC Interface)

Antenna, Satellite, GPS, Radar, RF Trainers
Order Code 10005


PC Based Manual Antenna Trainer has been designed to provide useful tools for hands on experimentation and teaching of various commonly used antennas in VHF-UHF-Microwave band in the laboratory for students of all levels. It can be used in stand-alone mode aswell as be interfaced with a computer via USB interface. In this Receiving antenna is rotated manually from 0 to 360 degrees and accordinglyreceiving antennas signal strength can be monitored on the Receiver. The system consists of a set of two tripods one for mounting the transmitting antenna and another for mounting the receiving antenna, 22 Antennas, RF Transmitter/ Receiver, Antenna Plotting Software and relevant accessories/ cables.
