WCO-169-WMB – 169 MHz compact omni antenna

The WCO-169-WMB is a 169 MHz compact omni antenna designed for 169 MHz licence free wall-mount applications for metering and utilities

The WCO-169-WMB is a 169 MHz compact omni antenna suitable for outdoor mounting to complement 169 MHz licence-free bands. Based on our popular WCO platform, this antenna is robust and compact solution for metering and utility applications where a wall-mounted antenna is required.

The WCO-169-WMB is based on a flame-retardant, UV-resistant ABS sheath and stainless steel L-bracket with a N-Female connector for connectivity to a RF jumper cable. This solution facilitates the mounting of the antenna away from the radio to optimise signal reception and reliability of communications.

Alternatively, the antenna without the bracket can be custom-tuned to mount directly onto the customer’s terminal or device (a minimum order quantity will apply for this service).

As alternative, EAD also offers the H169-SMA as rubber helical style terminal antenna or a more efficient wall-mount omni, the WMO-169-WMB. In addition, the SRW169 is a higher performance flexible whip antenna for terminal mounting.
