The DF240C is a tactical, man-portable Direction Finding (DF) antenna system with high sensitivity. The DF240C is used with DRT receivers to locate the source emitters for signals in the 100 MHz to 3000 MHz frequency range. The DF240C is compatible with DRT4411B-R, and DRT4413B-R receiver systems.
The DF antenna connects to the DRT receiver using coaxial RF and control cabling. There are two auxiliary RF connectors on the antenna so it can be joined and used in concert with a DF520 – Low Frequency Extender (LFE). The DF520 extends the low frequency range to 20 MHz and improves performance in the 100 to 600 MHz range. The system includes an integrated electronic compass. The system is powered through the DRT receiver. It may be mounted in a variety of ways. The DF240C is weather-resistant for continuous outdoor operation and is water resistant to 1 meter for a period of 30 minutes.
