Applications

One of our goals at STAR-H is to ease the process of selecting the correct antenna for any application. Whether an off-the-shelf solution is appropriate, or slight configuration is required for specialized applications, we will help you from start to finish to ensure you receive the best solution.

For situations where the required frequency band is known but there is flexibility in antenna type, please see our listing of Applications by Frequency Band.

To browse types of applications to which we cater, please see below. This list includes typical antennas used for common applications, but may not be exhaustive when unique solutions are necessary for difficult problems. To discuss your situation with a STAR-H engineer for tailored asssitance, please submit a Product Inquiry. Please note that this list is provided as guidance only, and the specifications of each antenna should be carefully reviewed prior to making a decision on its suitability for an application.
