- Premium performance Glide Slope (Path) antenna
- Easy replacement! The Dipole Channel Assembly can be installed/removed from the corner reflector while mounted on the glide slope tower.
- Delivers consistent, phase stable RF signal in the world’s most severe locations.
- This antenna is FAA approved, and certified for use in CAT I/II/III Instrument Landing Systems (ILS).
When installed in a corner reflector, the dipole channel assembly makes a complete Glide Slope antenna. The Dipole Channel Assembly consists of three collinear dipoles without the corner reflector. The Dipole Channel Assembly can be easily mounted to any dBs 300A corner reflector.
Each antenna is phase matched and tested to meet the current FAA standards for low ceiling and limited visibility landings. The removable channel assembly minimizes the need for adjustment following antenna replacement, as the corner reflector assembly can remain in place on the tower while the channel assembly is removed and replaced. When used with the appropriate transmitter system, the dBs 300A antenna transmits specially formed radio frequency (RF) beams in the frequency range of 328 to 336 MHz. Aircraft equipped with the proper airborne receiving equipment can follow the glide slope signal, provided by the dBs 300A and can lock on and follow appropriate descent angle safely down to the runway.
The Dipole Channel Assembly includes a temperature stabilized RF Distribution System, individual antenna element integral monitors, and a monitor combining device which provides a single monitor output. The entire RF Distribution System, as well as the integral monitor, are Constructed using phase stable, semi-rigid coaxial cable which provides less sensitivity to environmental changes.
The RF input (J1) and the monitor output (J2) connectors are both Type N female receptacles.
