Direction Finding Antenna System
The DF260C is a tactical, On-The-Move (OTM) Direction Finding (DF) antenna system for use with DRT receivers to locate the source emitters for signals in the 100 MHz to 2200 MHz frequency range. This DF antenna is optimized for 100 MHz to 500 MHz. The DF260C is designed for use with DRT4411B-R and 4413B-R receiver systems.
The DF antenna connects to the DRT receiver using coaxial RF and control cabling. The system includes an integrated electronic compass. The system is powered through the DRT receiver. The DF260C is a manpack antenna that may be used by an operator who is OTM with the DF260C attached directly to the top of his rucksack or raised on a short mast attached to the rucksack. The DF260C may also be mounted on the DRTpack roll-up mast for added height.
The DF260C is weather-resistant for continuous outdoor operation and is water resistant to 1 meter for a period of 30 minutes.
