The Model EXA-1000 Omni-directional Remote Antenna
is designed to enhance the radio range of Linear's receivers. This antenna can be
connected to the F connector on many Linear receivers to improve their range when they
must be located in poor signal reception locations. Usually an increase of 20-30% range
can be expected. The versatile EXA-1000 can be mounted in a variety of ways. A 2-inch
U-bolt is supplied for post or pipe mounting, or the U-bolt holes in the Base Plate can be
used to screw the antenna to a wall or vertical wood brace or beam.
NOTE: Generally, the higher the antenna is mounted above ground level, the
better the radio range will be. The EXA-1000 is a 1/2 wave, center fed, vertical antenna
composed of three parts: an Antenna assembly with an F connector attachment; a Base Plate
assembly with radial mounting provisions; and a five-foot, 75-ohm coaxial cable. The cable
connects to the antenna base on one end and the receivers F connector on the other. If the
antenna must be mounted further than five feet from the receiver, an extension cable of up
to a maximum of 25 feet may be used instead of the five foot cable supplied. Because of
the cable resistance, the performance of the EXA-1000 may be degraded by using longer than
a 25 foot cable.
