Multiband Pieps QFH Antenna

The HxD 75mm x 18mm helix is printed on very thin PCB that is supplied flat-packed. Both the Iridium and 800MHz radiators use miniUFL terminations. When inserting it into the antenna housing, it is simply rolled into shape and tacked together using 2 plastic clips. The antenna housing itself provides mechanical strength.

Tech Specs & Features
