Barrett Communications launches HF Antenna Tuner


Barrett Communications has announced a new range of Automatic HF Antenna Tuners (ATUs) designed to interface with Barrett 4000 series transceivers.

The 4045 Automatic HF Antenna Tuner, the 4049 Automatic Tuning Mobile HF Antenna and the 411 Automatic HF Antenna Tuner are suitable for land-mobile, marine and base station installations.

All Barrett ATUs provide continuous coverage over 1.5 to 30MHz, subject to wire or whip antenna length, and full 150 W PEP (digital, voice and data) performance.

Available in both black and NATO green, the 4045 ATUs are housed in a compact, rugged Nylon-66 glass-filled casing with a powder-coated stainless-steel base.

The model can be optioned with anti-vibration mounting to ensure its suitability for even the toughest of terrain.

Equipped with a built-in GPS, the 4045 is suitable for ALE 2G and 3G operations, simplifying the installation of tracking networks.

The 4049 Automatic Tuning Mobile HF Antenna has been designed from the same rugged material as the 4045 but to attach perfectly to a vehicle.

The antenna comes standard with a two-section fibreglass whip or can be paired with the Barrett NVIS Whip antenna which can greatly improve communications in hilly or mountainous terrain.

The Integrated Anti-vibration mounting system and integrated GPS come as standard for this model.

With an aluminium base rather than stainless steel, the 411 ATU enters the market at a lower price point.

Established in 1976 Perth-based Barrett Communications designs, manufactures and markets HF and VHF radio equipment for specialised, autonomous, medium and long distance radio communications.

Its products are exported to 150 countries.
