Omni AntennasCXL 2-2C

Unity Gain, Broad Banded Base Station Antenna for the 160 MHz Band


  • CXL 2-2C is a 0 dBd gain, omnidirectional base station antenna.
  • The antenna covers the complete band: 144 - 175 MHz.
  • CXL 2-2C is designed for fixation on supporting tubes with outer diameter between 27 mm and 65 mm.
  • The construction of the mount makes it possible to lead the cable either inside or along the outside of the mast tube.
  • A glass fibre tube completely encloses the carefully designed radiating element to ensure long dependable service in all climates.
  • Atmospherical discharges are immediately led to ground as all metal parts are DC-grounded (consequently, the antenna shows a DC-short across the coaxial cable).
  • This antenna is used where reliability is of utmost importance. A long lifetime has been taken into consideration when designing this antenna – it is sturdy and strong.
