Antennas for Micron Explorers

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, what do I need to utilise Shark Fin Antennas from my bag/cart?

I run 3 Micron Explorers and want to increase the range.

I've seen passive and active antennas and also distribution units.

I need a simple straightforward solution please. P.

Hi,
I also have some Microns (SDR550).
I use Zaxcom Bluefin passive antennas, and ZFSC-4-1 SMA passive splitters on each antenna. There is about 6dB RF attenuation on each output but Bluefins have +8dB gain.
This substantially increases my range for a reasonable cost. Active antennas & distribution are much more expensive, but not very useful in my case as long as I can keep my antennas near my recorder (coax cable lenght < 2m , rf loss is not significant).
I hope this helps,
Tristan
