TAC-2-RLB Antenna Control Unit
TAC-2-RLB Antenna Control Unit
Control box used to switch between two antennas with "right", "left", and "both" positions. Typically used to combine two antenna or switch between antennas mounted on right and left struts of aircraft to aid in aerial location of transmitters. Warranted for 100,000 operations.
TAC-4 Two-Port Peak Combiner/Splitter
TAC-4 Two-Port Peak Combiner/Splitter
Zero-degree phase shifter (combines two 50 ohm signal sources and provides a matched 50 ohm combined output). Used for precision peak systems in which signals received by two antennas are additive, providing a maximum signal when antennas are pointed toward the signal source. The TAC-4 may also be used to split an incoming signal from an antenna system for the simultaneous use of two receivers.
TAC-5 Two-Port Null Combiner
TAC-5 Two-Port Null Combiner
180-degree phase shifter (combines two 50 ohm signal sources and provides a matched 50 ohm combined output). Used for precision null systems (such as the RA-NS Systerm), in which signals received by two antennas are combined out-of-phase, to provide a deep distinctive null between two peak signals when antennas are pointed toward the signal source. This allows more precise bearings than are typically possible when using a peak combiner.
TAC-7 Control Box
TAC-7 Control Box
Used to switch between two antennas, with "right", "left", and "both" positions. In addition to switching between left and right antennas, there is an added capacity to switch a third (auxiliary) antenna. The third antenna is typically an omni-directional antenna, such as the RA-5B; however it could be another directional antenna, such as the RA-2A mounted on a pivot. The TAC-7 allows the option of plugging in a remote (yoke-mounted) toggle switch to select between the left and right antennas. The toggle switch (e.g. TPT-1 or TPT-2) not included. The TAC-7 is powered by a 9-volt battery (included).
TLA-1 Lightning Arrester
TLA-1 Lightning Arrester
For fixed-site installations. Will typically withstand 10 direct lightning strikes before replacement is necessary. Equipped with type-N connectors and supplied with two CN-00549-001 (BNC/N-J/P) and one CN-000606-001 (N/N-J/J) adapters.

RA-TC "T" Clamp
Attaches cross boom to mast (1.25 inches diameter) in stacked antenna arrays.
RA-TSQ Cross Boom Support Bracket
RA-TSQ Cross Boom Support Bracket
For RA-NS-2 System. Attaches one-inch square cross boom to round mast (1.25-inch diameter) in stacked antenna arrays.

RA-CB Cross Boom
Aluminum tubing "cross-bottom" for mounting two Yagi-type antennas (1.5-inch outside diameter).

RA-CS-SQ Cross Boom
One-inch square for mounting RA-2A Antenna in vertical plane.
RA-TB Thrust Bearing
RA-TB Thrust Bearing
This assembly is designed to stabilize a mast and antenna assembly from side to side movement as the mast exits a tower or penetrates a roof. The assembly does not support the weight of the mast and antenna but prevents lateral movement and allows a smooth rotation of the mast. Accepts masts up to two inches in diameter. The assembly is constructed from 6061 T6 anodized aluminum with stainless steel hardware. Not suitable for a saltwater environment.

RA-M5 Antenna Mast Section
Five-foot length, 1.25-inch outside diameter. Stacked lengths may be rotated from bottom without slipping.
