The DPV-60 consists of three vertically polarized, omnidirectional, UHF dipole antennas mounted coaxially. All three dipoles operate over the frequency band of 225 to 400 MHz. Each dipole operates independently and has a separate input connector. The antennas are normally used on line-of-sight propagation paths such as ground-to-air and point-to-point communications circuits.
The antenna is sealed in a fiberglass radome that provides mechanical stability and environmental protection of electrical components. It is provided with a coaxial mounting arrangement for mounting atop a 2-1/2 inch IPS pipe, enclosing the electrical connections away from the environment.
