Ocala, Florida, October 1/Internet --- Antennas for Communications (AFC) announced today that it has completed its contract with Viasat for the manufacture of two Ku-band Tallguide TG115 ultra low transmission loss waveguide runs for the PanAmSat 11m uplink earth station site, Homestead, Florida. The Tallguide TG115 is used to connect the transmitter facility to a Viasat 11m antenna. Due to the antenna location and the complexity of the physical layout, the Tallguide TG115 run was in excess of 120 feet.

"Where low transmission loss or high power are important, Tallguide TG115 replaces WR75 with substantial power savings " said Dr. Ronald S. Posner, AFC's CEO. "For the PanAmSat Homestead site, more than 5 dB output power was recovered. Tallguide leads to significant system improvements and cost savings from higher radiated antenna power with lower power transmitters to improved HPA linearity for complex modulation formats.

Antennas for Communications manufactures satellite and terrestrial antennas, radomes, microwave and waveguide components and Tallguide , an ultra low transmission loss waveguide. The company serves the satellite, broadcast, communications, cable, radar, weather and government industry worldwide.
