Shively Tunes to Versa2une
In Las Vegas next month, Shively Labs will introduce the Versa2une (shown), a field-tunable, low power, circular polarized FM antenna.
Maximum input power is 5 kW, with 2.5 kW into a bay. The VSWR <1.2:1. Shively says a user can tune it to frequency quickly, without any technical knowledge or equipment. The Versa2une is simple to install and lightweight; it packs into a small box for easy shipping, the company says.
Also new from Shively is the Model 6843, a high-power, side-mount, circular polarized antenna designed for multiplexed stations up to 12 MHz apart. Each bay will have a 10 kW power rating. The 6843 is a branched fed system offering directional patterns, completed on the Shively Labs pattern range. This new design is suitable for harsh weather environments.
The Model 6025 is a log periodic antenna. According to Shively it is designed for longevity and highly directional patterns; it is suitable for complicated, narrow or multi-lobe FCC pattern envelopes. With fixed attachments for stability in vertical and horizontal planes, movement is minimized on the tower. Power handling of 5 kW per antenna allows for arrays to meet ERP powers of up to 100 kW.
