UHF Antennas

The UHF (Ultra High Frequency) band is currently used for terrestrial broadcasting throughout Europe. Since the length of the UHF antenna is related to the length of the radio waves used, UHF antennas using short wavelengths are characterised by a short, thicker design. These antennas provide reliable communication conditions when installed in ambulances and taxis, among other things, and are also widely used for EDR radio and reception of UHF TV channels in everyday life.

What are the different types of UHF antennas?

Let's look at the most common types:

UHF roof antenna

One of the most stable methods for receiving transmissions over the UHF band is to install a roof antenna, which must be wired up to the receiver. Both omnidirectional and directional antennas with different gain are available.

UHF car antenna

Many special vehicles (taxis, ambulances, fire trucks, trailers) require the installation of a UHF car antenna. Of course, it all depends on the quality of the antenna, as various environmental obstacles such as mountains and tall buildings can significantly reduce the quality of the transmission. It is therefore essential that vehicles on the road, even for life-saving purposes, can overcome the communication challenges presented by the environment without any problems. We offer both magnetic car antennas and retractable antennas.

UHF handheld antenna

Available in cut-to-size versions, UHF handheld antennas provide the high sensitivity required for handheld radio use.

What frequency band is called UHF?

UHF bands are frequency bands covering the range between 300-3000 Mhz.

What bands are in the UHF band in the EU?

The UHF band is used for a variety of purposes in the EU Member States. TV transmitters, terrestrial mobile stations, VHF radios, amateur radio, remote controls, wireless microphones and many other uses have dedicated frequency ranges.

What should you know about the frequency bands?

Whether it's for providing wireless internet access, listening to the radio or watching TV, or operating other everyday electronic devices, these devices receive and emit signals. Each of these has its own frequency block - these blocks are called frequency bands, which cover a certain part or segment of the total frequency range.

How does the signal get from the transmitting antenna to the device?

The electromagnetic waves emitted from the transmitter stations are received by the receiver's antenna, based on frequency bands designated to the nearest MHz. The frequency bands used for antennas (e.g. UHF and VHF bands) have specific characteristics that allow the antenna to receive a signal from the transmitter side. This allows everyone to enjoy crystal clear transmission, whether analogue or digital.
