The Betso Bowtie is a compact wideband antenna designed for use on a sound bag. Its 470-700 MHz bandwidth, omnidirectional polar pattern (in a horizontal plane), and 700 MHz low pass filter deliver excellent performance in complex RF environment.
Delivery includes antenna holder, an 11" BNC to BNC cable, and an 11" BNC to right-angle SMA cable for attaching the Bowtie to a receiver or multi-coupler.
Wideband operation 470-700 MHz
Standard whip antennas are tuned in to relatively narrow band and users need to change antenna according to actual working bandwidth of their wireless system to achieve good reception. The Bowtie antenna structure brings a working bandwidth of 470-700 MHz, so you can be assured that the antenna is receiving as wide a signal range as possible.
700 MHz low pass filter
The RF spectrum is full of signal that can cause intermodulation, decreasing the range of your wireless system. The Betso Bowtie has an built-in 700 MHz low pass filter that effectively removes these signals before they can reach the receiver.
Sound bag antenna holder
The Betso Bowtie antenna holder is designed to be compatible with all bags on the market and works especially well with sound bags that have a solid frame, like Orca or K-Tek. The antenna holder is fully adjustable, foldable and rock solid.
Top build quality
Lightenned antenna structure is made of glass-reinforced epoxy laminate covered by scratch resistant structured paint. Precise sealing of all mechanical parts ensures great dust and water resistant performance (IP65 rating).
Starting in 2017, the 617-652 MHz and 663-698 MHz frequencies are being transitioned by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Users of wireless microphone devices that operate in any portion of those frequencies must cease operating on these frequencies no later than July 13, 2020. In addition, users of this device may be required to cease operations earlier than that date if their operations could cause harmful interference to a 600 MHz service licensee’s wireless operations on these frequencies. For more information, visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/wireless-microphones-guide or call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC).
Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device.
