WA-0208/HU Antenna Distribution Unit

WA-0208/HU Antenna Distribution Unit - Front Panel

The WiNRADiO WA-0208/HU dual-input antenna distribution unit combines a combiner and a splitter device in an optimum combination, particularly suited for general broadcasting or other professional HF/VHF applications where a single antenna needs to be connected to up to 8 receivers. While this model is particularly suited for WiNRADiO multichannel receiver systems such as the MS-8118/G3 Multichannel Broadcast Monitoring System, it can be also used with any third-party receivers and antennas.


 Freq. range 0.15-50 MHz (input 1) and 50-1600 MHz (input 2)
 Inbuilt low-noise preamplifier
 Two antenna inputs, 8 receiver outputs
 High IP3 amplifier
 High isolation between ports
 Rack mount 1RU 19" enclosure
 Custom configurations available

Internally, the product consists of a combiner, low-noise preamplifier with a high third-order intercept point, followed by a high-isolation power splitter.

The WA-0208/HU antenna distribution units are eminently suitable for broadcasting, industrial, government, military and other demanding high-end applications.
