ORION 11 (high gain 10 bar reflector)
Orion 11 high gain reflector as per photo.
The "Orion Range"is a "skeletonised" version of the Galaxie range, reducing windload, weight and acceptance angle, whilst maintaining forward gain. The circular dipole gives the same clarity and bandspread. This can be useful in areas where taller masts are needed and windloading is critical. The tighter acceptance angle favour rotator use and lightweight rotators can be used. The three larger models have increased framework to cope with the extra length. All four models can be upgraded to full Galaxie specification.
Pictured above with the optional five extra reflector elements which increase the gain by 0.5 dB and lift the Front to Back Ratio to 37.7 dB and Windloading to 60 lbs @ 100mph.
