Tripods are made of glass fiber composite material. Tripod legs are telescopic and sections are pushed out and locked in place with mechanical latches. For windy conditions, the heavy duty tripods can also be guyed.
Tripods are quick to deploy and they provide excellent pointing accuracy for heavy narrow beam antennas. Tripods can also handle inertial loads. Tripods are applicable, for example, for mountain top link applications as well as deploying a communication system on rooftops in urban areas. Tripods are excellent for temporary communication networks in rescue, police and fire fighting as well as temporary lighting applications.
