The vertically polarized LP Antenna VLP 0636 is intended for the propagation of a directed ground wave over good conducting ground or over the ocean, providing high gain at low frequencies.
It is conceived for fixed communication links servicing small to large distances and especially suitable for coastal installations.
The antennas are designed and fabricated with quality assurance uppermost. The basis for mechanical loading calculations is DIN 4131 and higher load factors can be accommodated on request. The choice of materials is based on long term experience gained in the field of corrosion and statics. For example, HF conducting parts such as dipoles and feed lines are fabricated from sea-water resistant aluminium or aluminium alloys, the smallest fan antenna also makes use of fine stranded bronze rope. Fixtures and standard parts are made from stainless steel. Guy ropes are fabricated either from stainless steel or Parafil. All insulators are made from glazed low-loss ceramic. The masts are constructed from hot-dip galvanized steel.
