SKU: GS-420 Category:


The GS-420 glide slope antenna was designed, tested and certified as part of the new generation and more stable ILS-420 system. The GS-420 antenna contains numerous improvements over existing glide slope antennas.

Improvements Include:
• Extremely stable monitor coupling and phase operation over the environment service conditions, as well as during dipole heater operation.
• Improved sealing of the antenna.
• Improved vibration tolerance, in both transportation and installed conditions.
• Improved dipole design.
• Improved solderability.
• More precise tuning and phase matching of cables.
