The CP Beam™ antenna is a high performance, directional UHF antenna in a lightweight, portable package. Unlike other bulky helicals that require flight cases, the CP Beam is quickly deployed and stowed - fitting in a 2RU rack drawer and weighing just 2.5 lbs. 9 dBd of gain makes it an ideal choice for long range applications. Widely used on major concert tours for monitoring and comms, the CP Beam connects to any brand IEM, wireless mic, or UHF intercom.
What is the CP BEAM designed for?
The CP Beam provides all of the benefits of helical antennas in a lightweight, durable, folding form-factor. Helical or “multi-polarized” antennas provide higher gain due to their coverage pattern (narrow beam width), and superior protection against interference due to the circular polarization of the antenna element.
What type of equipment will the CP Beam work with?
The CP Beam antenna is compatible with UHF wireless microphones, UHF in-ear monitors, UHF IFBs and UHF and 900 MHz intercoms.
How many CP BEAMS are needed per receiver?
Some of the benefits of circular polarization may be achieved by using only one CP Beam per diversity receiver, while leaving the stock whip/dipole attached to the other diversity branch. However, where budget and space allows, two CP Beams should be used for exceptional range improvement and dropout protection.
Can I use the CP Beam with IEMs?
Yes. The CP Beam is perfectly suited for any brand UHF broadcast band (470-698 MHz) in-ear monitor that accepts external antennas at the transmitter.
