Summary

AvL 1220FA 1.6m SNG Motorized Tri-Band FlyAway Antenna 2-port C-Band

AvL's Model 1.6m 1220 FlyAway SNG antenna systems offer enhanced wind performance in a lightweight, portable, 2-man lift package. All 1220FA FlyAway SNG antenna systems have positioners integrated into cases for easy set-up; these antennas can be flown anywhere, then set up and operational within minutes.

AvL’s FlyAway SNG antennas  are designed to meet and exceed the highest performance requirements around the world to guarantee both satellite authority compliance and peak in performance, reliability and availability.

Each Flyaway Antenna is priced to include the AvL carbon fiber antenna and auto-acquisition controller for ease of operation. As with all AvL antenna systems, no laptop is necessary to operate the controller, the antennas interface with any modem, RF electronics, or satellite service.
