Andrew Terrestrial Microwave Antennas provide a cost-effective solution for all terrestrial microwave systems operating at frequencies between 335 MHz and 19.7 GHz and in sizes from 2 foot (0.6 m) to 15 foot (4.6 m) in diameter.

Ultra High Performance Antennas
UHX and UHP Series antennas provide high gain, low VSWR, and superior radiation pattern performance for easier frequency coordination. They minimize frequency congestion problems because of a highly efficient beam-forming feed and superior pattern performance. UHX Series feature dual polarization. UHP Series are single polarized.

HP and HPX Series Ultra Multiband Antennas
HP and HPX Series antennas feature high performance at low lifetime cost. They are mechanically similar to the UHX ultra high performance antennas, except most models have feeds that do not include the beam-forming feature. HPX Series feature dual polarization; HP Series are single polarized.

UMX Series Ultra Multiband Antennas
UMX Series antennas provide simultaneous dual-band, dual-polarized (4-port) operation in various frequency bands. These antennas can save considerable cost by reducing the installation expense and the amount of equipment required on systems with multiple frequency requirements. UMX antennas allow easy single to multiband transition without compromising high performance.

HSX Series Antennas - High XPD Microwave Antennas
HSX Series antennas are high performance antennas, which feature very high cross polarization discrimination (XPD) in both the azimuth and elevation planes. The guaranteed XPD for these antennas is 40 dB. These antennas are suitable for high capacity digital systems, utilizing transmission schemes such as Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH). This performance is achieved through the use of an antenna feed horn with a unique illuminator ring design and strict quality control measures in the manufacture of these feeds. These values apply for antennas up to the 11 GHz frequency band. For antennas at frequency bands higher than 11 GHz, the XPD is greater than 36 dB within the circular -1 dB co-polar contour and greater than 30 dB elsewhere. The HSX Series antennas are available for frequency bands from 3.4 to 18 GHz.

Dual Beam Angle Diversity Antennas
Angle Diversity antennas are special solution antennas that provide a dual beam in either a single or dual polarized version. They can help overcome multipath fading issues when installation of two antennas is impractical due to tower space availability or wind loading.

P, PL, PX and PXL Series Standard Parabolic Antennas
P, PL, PX, and PXL Series Standard Parabolic antennas are unshielded parabolic antennas that provide economical and reliable service where a high degree of back and side radiation suppression is not necessary.
  • Low-VSWR versions minimize echo distortion for less noise on the system
  • A vertical tower mount is included. Optional mounts and radomes can be ordered separately for versatility of installation
  • Single and dual polarized options are available in most applicable frequencies
  • Spun aluminum reflectors provide long term reliability and minimize environmental distortion to protect system investments
  • Rugged, high quality performance at low initial costs

FP and FPX Series Standard Focal Plane Antennas
FP and FPX Series Standard Focal Plane antennas are ideal for use in higher capacity systems where improved front-to-back ratios are required.
  • Special deep reflectors and a unique beam-shaping feed or special edge geometry achieve efficient pattern performance. The antennas combine reasonable initial cost with very long-life performance, assuring long term economy.
  • Single and dual polarization options are available
  • A vertical tower mount for ease of tower interface is included

FPA Series Flat Panel Array Antennas
The Flat Panel Array (FPA) Series antennas are designs that provide solutions for many applications, including spread spectrum and UNII frequency band operation. The low profile has an aesthetically pleasing appearance and eases the planning and zoning process. The antennas incorporate a convenient rear mounted connector. The mount is easily assembled and readily attaches the antenna onto a vertical pipe.

Optional Components
Andrew offers a full line of optional components for terrestrial microwave antenna systems.
  • Struts: Antennas include one or two side struts, depending on model. Where one side strut is supplied, it includes a stainless steel threaded rod fine azimuth adjustment. Where two side struts are supplied, one is adjustable (has fine azimuth adjustment) and the other is fixed (adjustable but without fine azimuth adjustment).
  • Mounts: Antenna mount structural members are hot-dip galvanized steel or aluminum. Fixed hardware is hot-dip galvanized steel. Adjusting hardware, including adjusting rods, is stainless steel. Some mounts use a swivel clamp for azimuth adjustment. Most mounts have threaded fine elevation adjustment.
  • Radomes: Radomes are available for most Andrew antennas. Radomes reduce wind loading to the tower while providing added protection for the feed from the elements. There are two types of radomes, flexible and molded. Flexible radomes are provided on shielded antennas and molded radomes are options to standard and focal plane antennas. All radomes have a standard minimum wind survival of 125 mph (200 km/h).
  • High Wind Environment Options: High wind options that exceed the standard 125 mph (200 km/h) wind survival rating are available in 155 mph (250 km/h) and 200 mph (320 km/h) survival rating. These heavy-duty antenna versions feature strong back structures for maintaining alignment accuracy in adverse and severe wind conditions. Use the "W" prefix for 155 mph (250 km/h), and the "S" prefix for 200 mph (320 km/h) survival ratings.
  • Corrosive Environment Options: The corrosive environment option is available for most antennas. This option provides long term protection in marine or salt and most industrial environments including chemical and fossil fuel areas. A special epoxy paint applied at the factory provides added protection. In addition, corrosion inhibiting compounds and protective sealants are applied during installation.
