  • 2-port mode-matched Ku-band feed (enhanced cross-pol comp.)
  • 4-port Ku-band wideband feed
  • 2-port L-band feed
  • Models 1210 and 1212: 2- or 4-port Ka-band feed
  • Saddlebag mount for larger HPAs
  • Transmit rotary joint on feed
  • Aerodynamic cowling

The 1.2m rugged vehicle-mount / driveaway antenna family includes the following models:
  • Model 1200 is a rugged antenna with standard 2-port precision Ku-band feed or optional 2-port mode-matched Ku-band or 2-port L-band
  • Model 1200HW is a rugged antenna with same feed options as Model 1200 plus enhanced wind tolerance
  • Model 1210 is a rugged antenna with a 2-port precision Ku-band feed (standard cross-pol comp.); this antenna is band-configurable and 2-port Ka-band ready
  • Model 1212 is a rugged Eutelsat-certified antenna with a 2-port mode-matched Ku-band feed (enhanced cross-pol comp.); this antenna is band-configurable and 2-port Ka-band ready
