mWAVE’s innovative perforated parabolic antenna line are precision built light-weight utility grade commercial antennas specially designed for deployment on positioners, mobile telescoping masts and fixed applications. The perforations in these reflectors provide a reduced windload on the reflector and its supporting structure. They feature enhanced electrical and mechanical features that are designed from the start to be customizable and offer years of uninterrupted operation.
Perforated reflectors are available in 2-ft (0.6), 3-ft (0.9) and 4-ft (1.2) diameters and are currently available to operate 2-GHz, 4-GHz and 5-GHz bands in single, dual or circular polarized configurations. Customer specific frequency bands are available on request. The standard input for these models is a type N feed input, other input types and OEM interfaces are available.
When equipped with mWAVE’s standard mount, the antenna features independent azimuth and elevation adjustment that mates to 1.9 – 4.5 in. O.D. (48 – 114 mm) customer supplied vertical pipe mast. All production model antennas are painted gray with custom colors available on request. Unless otherwise noted these perforated parabolic models have a survival rating pf 90 mph (144 kmh) wind. An optional Wind Brace kit is available.

mWAVE staff took part in the first annual mWAVE 2021 Community Service Project. This years’ service project was to clean up a section of Sebago-to-the-Sea Trail which is out the back door of our facilities.
This old un-used rail bed was acquired by the State of Maine as a recreational trail and is managed by the Sebago to the Sea Coalition. The entire trail system is 28-miles (45-km) from Sebago Lake in Windham to Casco Bay in South Portland. mWAVE tackled a little over 3-miles (4.8-km) of the trail system.
The staff were split into two-person teams and assigned sections of the trail to the north and south of the mWAVE facility. Staff participants were Anthony Brook, Bill Sanborn, Blake Laughlin, Chase Howard, Chris Mosher, Ed Daniel, Gary Ross, Heather Melanson, Jeff Richardson, Jim Detert, Julie Frisco, Mike Emanuello, Peter Farnum, Ralph Prigge, Seth Hanson, Shawn Malespini, Sven Ehnstrom, Troy Dennen. All in all the staff did an amazing job and had a great time.
