Electro Voice LPA500
Electro Voice LPA500 Description:
Directional UHF Antenna
The LPA500 is a Log Periodic Antenna that provides 5dB of gain in the direction it is pointed. A microphone stand adapter and universal mounting clamp are included as well as a 10 foot antenna cable.
EV Branded Log periodic antenna 450 - 900MHz with 10' coax cable and mounting
The Electro-Voice LPA500 is a broadband directional log periodic antenna. It is optimized for reception of frequencies from 450 to 900 MHz.
The gain of this antenna enables it to receive signals from a greater distance than a typical "whip" type antenna.
Placement The LPA500 should be placed in a position that has a clear, unobstructed path to the transmitter.
Obstructions to the signal such as walls, ceilings and metal objects will reduce range and performance.
Generally speaking, placing the LPA500 at an elevated location will yield the best performance over the largest area.
Antenna Mounting The LPA500 is supplied with a variety of mounting hardware to make installation easy. It should always be mounted vertically with the arrow pointing towards the transmitters(s). See Figure 1. when oriented correctly, the LPA500 will appear as a thin piece of metal when viewed from the transmitter's position.
For best results, do not clamp the LPA500 to horizontal metal objects that extend past the clamp. Metal rods or other objects that block part of the large face of the antenna will detune it and cause loss of performance.
Log periodic antennas are very directional and will have the best reception when pointed at the transmitter. This design also means less interference from unwanted signals coming from the back or side of the antenna.
