Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and products, has enhanced two of its most popular earth station antennas to make them capable of withstanding the fiercest hurricane-force winds.

Andrew's 4.5 meter and 9.4 meter High Wind Earth Station Antennas ensure minimal degradation of performance during high winds. They have the ability to survive in winds of up to 155 miles per hour in any position and speeds of up to 200 miles per hour in the stowed position.

"The superior design enhancements to these two products provide our customers with peace of mind that their antennas will perform well, even when faced with winds powerful enough to force other antennas off the air," said Russell Dearnley, earth station antenna business unit director, Satellite Communications Group, Andrew Corporation. "This is a perfect option for areas around the world that are subject to excessive wind speeds."

Andrew will showcase its various satellite communications offerings February 7-9 at SATELLITE 2006 in Washington D.C.

Andrew's Satellite Communications Group provides a complete line of antennas from 43 centimeters to 11.5 meters for all enterprise, government, and consumer satellite communication applications. Andrew-designed and -built products--which cover C, Ku, K, X, and the emerging Ka band--include type approved earth station antenna hubs and gateways for broadband and broadcast, VSAT broadband antennas for consumer and enterprise customers, DBS antennas for home satellite broadcast systems, and complete installation and testing services.
