Key Product Information

​​Frequency Range

The model 3180C covers the traditional frequency range for EMC measurements. Additionally, the 3180C covers all of the VHF and UHF bands, making it ideal for spectrum monitoring of FM, TV and some cellular phones. With the small cone elements in place, the 3180C can be used up to 3 GHz.

Radiation Pattern

The model 3180C has been designed to have a radiation pattern that is omnidirectional. The elements have been optimized to avoid any splitting of the main radiation beam in the elevation cut.

Flexible Mounting System

The model 3180C antenna includes both an EMCO block mount and a rear “stinger” mount.​
