SMC MF T Antenna
Designed for the MF band, the SMC MF “T” antenna has omnidirectional characteristics. The inverted “L” antenna is a special type of vertical radiator in which the upper element is bent over. This enables a reasonable length of wire to be used without the need for using high masts. The direction of the electric field is no longer completely vertical but it has a strong horizontal pattern. The “T” antenna may be regarded as an inverted “L” type antenna in which the horizontal portion has been duplicated to increase the top capacitance to earth and keeps the vertical element further from the possible interference of the supporting masts. The length of antenna is not intended to be self resonant, it can be brought to resonance over the MF range using a suitable ATU. SMC manufacture 1, 2, 3 or 4 wire arrays to capacity requirements.
