The 'Sniffer' Conical Horn Antenna System

The 'Sniffer' Conical Horn Antenna System

Introduction

The 'Sniffer' is the ultimate solution for performing simple microwave link measurements using small, lightweight, and reliable conical horn antennas.

The product family consists of three small-size, wideband, conical horn antennas, a smart mounting system, and optional coaxial-to-waveguide adapters. Waterproof handbag and riflescope for direction finding are also available upon request.

The 'Sniffer' is the ideal tool for performance checks, failure searches and interference measurements: it is easy to climb up to the tower with the small-size and lightweight horn antenna that can be mounted on horizontal or vertical pole by hand without any tools.
