The above chart uses three factors to determine the antenna that will best suit your application. To use the chart, select the antenna that best
meets the polarization, frequency and directivity requirements of your application. If we do not list the antenna you need please submit a request for a customized antenna design for a fast and friendly quotation. See page 24 for more information on custom antennas and projects.
Polarization
Frequency
Directivity
Polarization describes the method in
which the electromagnetic wave is
radiated from an antenna. Most antennas transmit in linear (vertical or horizontal) and circular polarization. Linear antenna
transmissions achieve better distance and
penetration whereas circular transmissions
excel at maintaining communication links
when the transmission path is obstructed.
The application that the antenna will
be used for often determines the
frequency range that is required. For
example, GPS applications occupy the 1.2 to
1.6 GHz band while the FM broadcast band
ranges from 87.5 to 108.0 MHz. Select an
antenna that fits the frequency range your
application will be utilizing.
Directivity indicates the direction of
an antenna’s radiating signal. An
antenna that radiates in all directions
equally (Omni directional) is considered to
have no directionality. An antenna who’s
signal is more focused in fixed directions are
considered directional. Antennas with no
directivity should be used in applications
where signals are expected from any bearing.

DIRECTIONAL ANTENNAS
Directional Antennas
ANTENNAS
Directional Antennas are generally used for systems that require narrow beamwidth and highly directed energy. These narrow beam
antennas can provide a large amount of energy over a small coverage area.
When used for point-to-point communications systems (such as satellite links), these very-directive antennas will greatly reduce power requirements. In EW applications, highly directive antennas increase the field strength at the target at a fraction of the cost of higher output
amplifiers. The most effective results are obtained when combined with higher power amplifiers.
Our quality trailer-mounted, highly-directional dish antennas are available at a reasonable cost. Visit our web page, www.tmcdesign.com, or

widely known for its uses in satellite communications. However, BF-550-24
the antenna is also useful in wireless applications at frequencies BF-550-72
of 1 GHz and above. It is common to see this antenna in radio, television,

Helical antennas have an inherent helix in their design.
As a result, these antennas radiate RF in travelling waves
through a corkscrew pattern. Signals travelling on these
circular waves can be carried on any of its axial planes of
symmetry. This method of transmission results in a signal that is
better at penetrating and bending around objects, making it more
resistant to signal degradation from common communication
obstacles such as multi-path, phasing, weather and line-of sight.
Horn antennas characteristically provide significant directivity
and gain. While horns are capable antennas they are also used
as gain standards and feeds for parabolic dish antennas. Horns
are commonly used in applications operating at microwave
frequencies, specifically the UHF (300 MHz to 3 GHz) range.
Helical antennas are available that can provide continuous coverage from 100 MHz to 6000 MHz (6 GHz) in both left or right hand
circular polarization. All helical models can be manufactured in
both commercial or military grades. Contact us for more information on delivery and custom applications.

Log Periodic (LP) Antennas
Log periodic antennas are handy in directional applications where wide bandwidth and moderate gain is a
requirement. Models with higher gain values often increase dramatically in physical size. The log-periodic
antenna is reserved for applications allocated to the HF, VHF and
UHF potions of the RF frequency spectrum.
TMC Design Corporation has many years experience in the design
and fabrication of high power log periodic antennas. We offer log
periodic antennas covering the frequency spectrum from 20 MHz
to 2 GHz available in commercial or military grades. Contact us for
pricing and delivery.

The Telemetry Spigot Multi-Phase Solid-State Array (shown above) is a unique receive-only antenna array that allowed operators simultaneous reception of up to three (3) geo-synchronous satellites within ± 45 degrees Azimuth and ± 2 degrees Elevation of each other.
Anticipating heavy wind conditions at the customer’s installation site, the antenna system was designed with an adjustable wide-leg tripod base. The
tripod can be
adjusted in Azimuth and Elevation (15°) directions after the system is setup.
Environmental Electromagnetic Link Protection
ion System
The Environmental Electromagnetic Link Protection Systems were developed to satisfy a customer requirement to detect
Link Protection System with a
weighted tripod mount for
heavy wind conditions.
Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) in the S-band Space-Ground Link
Subsystem (SGLS; 2200 to 2300 MHz). The result is a system that
effectively detects RFI from either ground based or low altitude signal
sources. Once detected the system is capable of saving and reporting:
the reference time of occurrence,
duration of occurrence,
the direction of the interfering source,
the measured impact on a downlink signal.
Multiple systems have been procured by the US Air Force and are
currently operating at eight of their facilities all over the
world. Many of the systems that were deployed were uniquely designed to cope with the environments and circumstances of
their installation sites such as outdoor operation, wind resistance, waterproofing and sub-zero operation. Systems included a
slotted waveguide antenna mounted on a 360 rotating pedestal mount and an equipment rack with telemetric hardware.
