The AEW-DA660D UHF Antenna Distribution System (operating in the 655to 680MHz range) is an active unity-gain antenna distribution systemproviding two 1-in, 4-out RF channels to connect a pair of antennas toas many as four diversity receivers. A cascade output is provided as adirectional coupler to drive additional distribution amps. The unitalso features defeatable antenna power and AC passthrough capabilitythat allows daisy-chain AC hookup. The rugged metal chassis mounts in asingle 19-inch rackspace, and has reinforced mounting ears and rearrackmount capability.
