FM Broadcast Folded Dipoles & Stacked Arrays

Models FMD, FMD3-SA & FMD6-SA

The FMD series of dipoles are designed as an economical antenna system for medium power FM broadcast stations. They are available in three configurations - single dipole and two or four dipole stacked arrays.

Construction is from heavy extruded aluminium tube with a rugged cast aluminium centre clamp. This clamp is then attached to the boom with three radial bolts to provide a reliable connection. All hardware is stainless steel. To increase the corrosion resistance, the aluminium element and boom are silver anodised.

Each Dipole is fitted with a RG213 coax tail, fed down the boom centre and terminated with an N plug connector.

By adjusting the spacing from the steel supporting mast or reflective supporting structure, an offset radiation pattern is achieved providing more gain in the favoured direction. This is shown in the radiation pattern on page 23 with “A” being the 1/4 wave offset and “B” the omnidirectional pattern. Down-tilt can also be provided.

Mounting Options: Mount to a wooden pole, use the Pole Mount Clamp (CLPM or CLVPM). Mount to a vertical tube diameter of up to 48mm, use the Cross Clamp (CLCR).
