Key Product Information

​​Frequency Range

The model 3183 is designed to have the lowest possible VSWR across its range of operation. The antenna exhibits an average 2:1 VSWR.

Radiation Pattern

The radiation pattern of the model 3183 is omnidirectional in the H-plane. This means the antenna can receive signals from every direction around its axis.

CISPR-16 Conformance

 The radiation pattern closely conforms to the CISPR 16 requirements for chamber validation. Because of its small size, the antenna can also be used for amplifier harmonic measurements when performing tests per the IEC 61000-4-3.

Spectrum Monitoring

The model 3183 can be used for EM Field surveying and spectrum monitoring. The low weight design allows use as a field surveying tool, in conjunction with a portable spectrum analyzer.
