Fairview Microwave offers a new collection of rubber duck and whip-style antennas. Blending portability with performance, these antennas are a benchmark in radio-enhancing solutions for diverse applications.

The company's newly launched antennas are crafted to serve as lightweight and compact additions to radios. They are industrially fine-tuned to specific frequency ranges, providing optimal transmission and reception. Stubby-style antennas within this collection supply a more compact form without compromising functionality. With a range of 2.4GHz to 916MHz, these antennas cater to a wide spectrum of wireless communication needs.

Key attributes include various frequency range options and the ability to accomplish a gain between 0dBi and 4.5dBi. The portfolio encompasses diverse designs, including concave, stubby, blade style and versatile tilt-and-swivel antennas. Also, the antennas are optimised for 4G LTE and 5G band operations, delivering a way for superior wireless connectivity in the ever-evolving digital age.

Developed with the end user in mind, the antennas offer SMA male and RPSMA connector options, providing compatibility with many devices. The 90° connector adds an extra layer of versatility. Features like water and dust ingress protection, linear polarisation, and dual-band Wi-Fi functionality harden the range's position as an essential tool for modern wireless applications.

"Fairview has always engineered products that cater to both current and future industry demands," said product line manager Kevin Hietpas. "This new range of rubber duck and whip-style antennas encapsulates our commitment to innovation, versatility and quality."
