The DF-A0084 is a handheld wideband antenna for direction finding and transmitter hunting in the 20 to 8500 MHz band.
It combines several antennas in a neat housing, and some integrated electronics to make it more effective when used in conjunction with signal analyzers.
A single RF output is provided, with internal switching selecting the appropriate antenna, and choosing to connect or bypass the pre-amplifier.
The amplifier is a low-noise wideband amplifier that enhances system sensitivity in active mode. In passive mode, the amplifier is bypassed so that the antenna can be used in the presence of strong signals.
The DF-A0084-01 is an extension module for 9 kHz to 20 MHz which is available as an option. It is a loop antenna with a diameter of 300 mm.
