QUAD Antenna Design
The DUO-RX is designed to maximize the possibilities of receiving even the faintest of signals. We have designed it with a dual radio setup so each transmitter is picked up with its own transceiver chip. Each radio chip is capable of true diversity and is connected to two different antennas. Each chip features its own SMA antenna port that allows the user to feed it RF signal from a whole host of different 2.4Ghz SMA antennas on the market from directional, plane, and collector dishes to even experimental antennas like Can-tennas. On the flip side, each radio chip is also connected to an internal horizontally mounted dipole PCB antenna.This allows for the DUO-RX to receive the max transmissions on the horizontal plane in case the BP-TX has been mounted sideways on an actor. These also act as omni-directional pickup antennas in case an actor has wandered out of view of a directional shark fin antenna plugged into the SMA port.
In layman’s terms, more antennas = more chances to grab a transmitter’s signal.
