|Discontinued Shortwave Antennas|
Dressler shortwave active antennas are designed for stationary and mobile receiving applications. You can capture the weakest signals with these German designed and German manufactured antennas.
The ARA40 (shown above) is a great alternative for those who do not have the space for a traditional outside wire antenna. It is compact and unobtrusive. The output impedance of the antenna is always 50-75 ohms, independent of frequency. This allows efficient connection directly to the receiver without an additional antenna tuner. The ARA40 will not overdrive most portables.
The system starts with a 36 inch (95 cm) fiberglass whip antenna "A".
The ARA 40 clamps on to a standard 1.25-1.5 inch mast (not supplied).
The ARA60S is designed in a similar fashion and looks like the ARA40. However its coverage is 40 kHz to 60 MHz. Additionally it has a higher gain for use with table top communications receivers, and now features a lower loss coax cable.
The ARA100HDX covers 40 kHz to 100 MHz and is designed for the interception of weak signals even in the presence of strong broadcast station signals.
