VHF/UHF Multiple Dipole Muldipol™ Antennas

CONNECT UP TO SIX RADIOS TO A SINGLE ANTENNA

  • Save Space A single TACO MULDIPOL can connect up to four radios in one antenna, making for cleaner towers and reduced interference.
  • Save Time Fewer antennas to install and service saves time, now and over the long term.
  • Save Money Fewer masts required, less weatherproofing, lower maintenance costs.

Muldipol™ Air Traffic Control and Ground-to-Air

Our unique Multiple Dipole Collinear Array concept shields the feed cables to improve radiation pattern characteristics and achieve a high degree of isolation between closely spaced elements.

Our lightweight and compact design results in a small, rugged, easy to install antenna that minimizes space, perfectly suited for both tactical transportable use in hostile ground-air-ground environments and on airport ATC towers around the world.

Our Shipboard models feature a double clamp design to increase stability in open sea installations, as evidenced by their proven performance in naval fleets over many years. Many VHF and UHF frequency configurations are available with up to 6 connectors.

Yagi Data Communication 10 Element Antenna

The use of multiple driven elements allows our Yagis to achieve high gain levels throughout their entire specified bandwidths. A single operational band typically covers a frequency range that would require as many as 3 standard Yagis.

Crafted from high strength aluminum, they utilize stainless steel hardware for excellent corrosion resistance. Each unit is furnished with an integrated 50 Ohm N-Female connector, and is capable of mounting to a mast range of 1.5” to 3”OD.  Included is a fiberglass mast fitted with coupling that center mounts to standard tower masts.
