The 8-wire full wave cage dipole antenna exploits the principles of a large diameter radiating element giving a broader band width, in the order of 2:1 for transmission, and 2.5:1 for receiving purposes. Having a high characteristic impedance of 600 ohms, the antenna may be fed using 600 ohm open wire line, or coaxially using the appropriate Balun transformer.
Full Wave Cage Quadrant
The full wave quadrant is essentially a full wave cage dipole bent at the center to 90′, as a result, producing a very good omni-directional radiating pattern in the horizontal plane. The vertical pattern, bandwidth and power rating remain unaffected.
Quadrant antennas can be installed in groups on a four-mast arrangement, giving better bandwidth (using up to four antennas).
