9300 Automatic Tuning Whip • Codan Communications

Codan’s 9300 Automatic Tuning Whip Antenna is designed for superior performance and reliability in the most demanding mobile military operations.

The 9300 antenna operates under control of intelligent adaptive matching algorithm which continuously monitors any significant variations of standing wave ratio that may be caused by weather conditions or proximity of other vehicles and automatically adjusts built-in matching circuit to VSWR 1.6:1 or less at every new transmission. This ensures that the HF transceiver is able to maximise RF output power at all times, ensuring optimum communication quality and range at all times.

The 9300 is packaged in a compact self-contained form factor and is easy to install on all type of vehicular platforms equipped with Codan HF transceivers. Installation is facilitated through wide selection of mounting brackets, installation kits and cable length options.

Key Features

Efficiency

Closer-to-centre loaded monopole radiator that provides substantially greater radiation resistance compared to base loaded antenna-and-coupler combination typically used in mobile HF installations.

Full HF Band Coverage

Ultra-fast automatic tuning to any frequency over the entire 1.6–30 MHz HF frequency range permitting maximum utilization of HF transceiver spectrum capability, while using 2G ALE, 3G ALE or frequency hopping.

Mil Spec

Rugged and impervious to dust and water ingress, with housing moulded from fiberglass reinforced nylon, stabilised by artificial aging treatment – meeting the requirements of MIL-STD-810.

Simple install

Compact self-contained form factor allows for easy installation on all type of vehicles through a selection of mounting options.
