Product features include dual low noise amplifiers, limiters and by-pass switches with antenna frequency ranges from 20 MHz -1 GHz in the low the band with 20 dB gain, and 1 GHz-6 GHz for high band with 28 dB gain. The SAS 218 version is also available with the same low band coverage and with an extended high band coverage from 1 GHz -18 GHz. 
 
These antennas are omni-directional in azimuth and vertical polarisation with an operating temperature range of 32°C to +55°C, and are encased in a rugged radome .They are available in a wide range of radome colours.
