About RF Venue

The Diversity Fin® Antenna is a multi-purpose antenna for wireless microphones that doesn’t drop out by using our patented cross-polarized design. It provides a diversity solution in a single package by combining one log-periodic dipole array (LPDA) and one dipole antenna in an orthogonal (right angle) configuration. One element captures vertically polarized signals, and the other horizontally polarized signals.

Why do wireless mics drop-out anyway?

Unlike traditional “paddle” or “shark fin” antennas, the Diversity Fin allows receivers to see a constant signal regardless of microphone orientation - allowing the user to hold a wireless microphone in any position relative to the antenna. A single Diversity Fin provides superior coverage to two traditional, shark fin antennas, allowing savings as well as reduced time to installation.

The Diversity Fin requires no external power and works with all wireless brands, analog and digital.  It replaces two standard paddle antennas at a lower cost with better performance and easier installation. Setup is faster for live performance since both cable runs required for diversity receivers are terminated at the same location.

The Diversity Fin antenna simply doesn’t drop out by solving cross polarization fade outs

Antenna Polarization Basics
The Diversity Fin Antenna vs other antennas
  • Incorporates both directional log-periodic dipole array (LPDA) and bidirectional dipole elements
  • Captures both horizontal and vertically polarized waves in single unit
  • Achieves optimal polarization diversity reception
  • Improves signal consistency in indoor reflective environments
  • One Diversity Fin replaces two traditional LPDA antennas
  • Available with a padded cover as well as in matte black and matte white models for permanent wall mount installations.

Most common questions asked:

How far apart must I place antennas?

Except for Diversity Fins—which have the added benefit of having co-located antennas, so the signal in both antennas is in the same phase period—antennas

Why do wireless mics drop out?

After the initial setup, wireless mics generally drop out because of loss of range and multipath reflections that cause cross-polarization fades.

How should I aim my antenna?

Proper antenna aiming can result in free benefits, so don’t ignore it. Omni antennas, such as the whips that are provided with a new wireless

What is the range of the Diversity Fin?

The range of any wireless system depends on a number of factors, of which antenna type is only one. Antenna placement, noise floor, and interfering signals are by far the most significant factors in determining range.

How many Diversity Fins are required per receiver?

Only one Diversity Fin is required per diversity receiver.

Does the Diversity Fin really work better than two paddles?

Yes.

Does the Diversity Fin work with in-ear monitors?

The Diversity Fin was designed for receive applications in a diversity receiver system.

How can I protect my Diversity Fin Antenna for outdoor or gym use?

For extra protection use we recommend this acrylic dome.
