Best of Show: Dielectric FMP FM Pylon Antenna Family

Simple design, low windload, broadband performance

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the recent NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of radio engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. 

Broadband pylon antennas are known in TV land. Dielectric is bringing its high efficiency and low windload to FM broadcasters. The benefits of the slot cavity microstrip FM antenna design include multicasting, pattern flexibility, increased reliability and a small tower footprint. John Schadler received the Best Paper Award in the NAB Broadcast Engineering and IT Conference for his presentation on the use of slotted coaxial pylon antenna technology in FM.

Shown with Radio World’s Paul McLane are Dielectric’s Kim Savage, John Schadler and Keith Pelletier.
