L1 Carrier Antenna for GPS Wireless Applications - L1AW-PCM

The L1AW is a new GPS Source antennas used to deliver L1G1 carrier frequency signals to GPS synchronization modules and receivers.  It is a high performance L1 GPS antenna that is ideally suited for many GPS applications requiring low noise and excellent gain. The L1AW includes high frequency selectivity to avoid interference with other nearby transmitters.

The standard L1AW configuration includes both snow/ice mitigating radome and pole cap mount. It can be ordered without a pole mount or with the l-bracket pole mount (pictured).  Call us to discuss your special needs to mount this antenna.

GPS Source has designed and manufactured all of their antennas for optimal performance at the voltage range stated. For example, antennas made by GPS Source that state they will work at 2.5V - 16V are designed to perform at 2.5V or 16V with optimal gain. GPS Source antennas designed to perform at 5V - 16V will have optimal gain at 5V or 16V. GPS Source antennas work as expected at the stated voltage range with rigorous testing and data to ensure customer satisfaction.
