The Barrett 4047 Automatic Tuning HF Horizontal Dipole (P/N BC404701) is specifically designed to interface with Barrett 4000 series HF transceivers. It is designed for base station applications where space is limited but high performance is still required.
Providing a frequency coverage of 1.5 to 30 MHz, the Barrett 4047 features rapid tuning (typically less than 1.5 s) and low power consumption capabilities.
The active tuning elements of the antenna are housed in a waterproof, high-impact resistant molding. The main antenna body has RF and control connectors. The 4047 is supplied as standard with a 30 metre composite RF control cable. Due to its rugged RF design, the Barrett 4049 antenna can be used with high duty cycle applications such as HF Data Systems.
Mounted on a standard 50mm pole, the antenna can be mounted as close as 6 metres from the ground making it extremely easy to install. With a packed length of only 2.1 metres, the antenna can be transported by air. For compatible masts please download the Barrett Mast Guide.
The Barrett 4047 is fitted with an internal GPS. This internal unit can be used to provide GPS data as part of a GPS tracking network without the need to install a separate GPS, simplifying the system installation.
When paired with a Barrett 4000 series HF Transceiver, the 4047 memory tune feature eliminates the need to retune an antenna after a channel change. When returning to a previously tuned channel, the transceiver sets the 4047 with a stored tuning result in less than 100 ms.
The active tuning elements of the antenna are housed in a waterproof, high-impact resistant moulding. This housing incorporates a heavy duty anti-vibration mount at its base.
