As a designer and manufacturer of antennas, RF switch frames, transmission line components and air-dielectric transmission lines, RFS will feature a number of products at its booth C1727.

The PEP Lite antenna series will be one such product. It features wind load characteristics that are traditional to pylon arrays but is frequency- and polarization agile to allow two channels to operate in the array that feature different polarization ratios.

RFS will also have its SBB fully broadband side mounted pylon antennas. The antenna has full band performance and industry standard radiation patterns for use as a high performance main antenna, backup antenna, or as a temporary antenna.�

The company also recently introduced a 3dB directional high-power coupler for use in the UHF TV band for transmitter and channel combining. The RFS DC618E-HP, shown at right, offers low loss and high power rating. �

Nick Wymant, RFC chief technology officer for broadcast, is also scheduled to speak during the show. He will speak at the BEC Transmitter and Tower Site Management session on April 19 from 9 a.m.-9:30 a.m.

The 2016 NAB Show will take place from April 16-21 in Las Vegas.
