Log Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA-0803)

Log Periodic Dipole Antenna (LPDA-0803)

The TDK RF Solutions LPDA-0803 Log Periodic Dipole Antenna covers the operating frequency range of 80 MHz to 3 GHz with enhanced gain over standard log periodic antennas.

The TDK RF Solutions LPDA-0803 Log Periodic Dipole Antenna provides strong performance over the entire frequency range of 80 MHz to 3 GHz. The LPDA-0803 features enhanced gain over standard log periodic dipole antennas (6 dBi at the low end to 8 dBi on the high end) and high power handing capabilities (500W) to accommodate a broad range of both immunity and emissions test requirements.

High PerformanceThe unique design of the tip of the LPDA-0803 provides reduced cross polarization, increased gain, and improved pattern symmetry at the high end of the operating frequency range (1.5 GHz - 3 GHz).

Robust DesignThe LPDA-0803 features an ultra-robust mechanical design, resilient gold chromate finish, and a highly durable feed to withstand the rigors of daily use in EMC test environments. The antenna can be mounted on a conventional antenna tower or on the TDK RF Solutions Manual Vertical Mast.
