Antenna Radiation Pattern For BP109 Super Beacon

- Sep 11, 2018-


We received some feedbacks from our clients, and some of you complained that BP109 seems cannot up to 1000m. In order to better understand this beacon, we had a specialized antenna test, if you are professional in this, you can know better about how to adjust direction for better performance via this report.
