FM Broadcast antenna, click this link Photos
than 20 years ago Norwalk Electronics designed and tested the
first version of our Dominator NWE-34 pictured in this link:1996
Dominator Test Antenna.
Since day one, we have guaranteed to provide the most range per
watt as compared to any
other FM broadcast antenna you can buy regardless of its cost. If
you're not satisfied within 30 days of receiving your antenna, simply
return it for a refund. We're not satisfied with the sale
until you're satisfied with the antenna. The NWE-34 in an easy to install high
gain alternative to multi bay
antennas that is economical and requires minimal tower mounting space.
It is approved for Translator, Booster, Non-Commercial, LPFM or Auxiliary/Backup use by the FCC and Industry Canada. Another benefit is these antennas
produce significantly less downward radiation than typical
"Circular Polarized" (CP) models, making them ideal for complying with new safety regulations
limiting RF exposure levels.
more than 2000 installations
worldwide, Norwalk Electronics is introducing the new 250 watt, low
power version of the popular Dominator antenna. All of the performance,
mechanical construction, metal tubing and durability of this
antenna are exactly the same as our higher power versions. Only the
RF components have been resized to conservatively handle the new power rating.
Under powered stations can now double their ERP with a single
antenna having a Power Gain of 2 (3dbd) for about $200. The 250 watt model is exclusively offered on this factory direct website. You can view
the antenna under independent
testing while being assaulted with a water hose
directly on the matching network at the following YouTube link: Intense Rain Test.
All FM antenna sales include free
tuning to your frequency.
original Dominator NWE-34 is the only non-directional high gain FM
broadcast antenna recognized by the FCC and Industry Canada.
All the competition has to offer is unity gain at best per
antenna bay and half of that on all CP models. The Dominator FM antenna is listed on the
and can be found by searching "FCC antenna model
NWE-34". Over the
years we have
turned many skeptics into believers after they test the antenna. Our
30-day money back performance guarantee has always been in place to
gain your confidence. The 3-year warranty against any manufacturing
defects is in place to retain your confidence after the sale.
more and more stations crowd the FM band, many new stations have
been forced to comply with tough regulations regarding adjacent
channel interference to existing stations. In some cases it
requires engineers submitting site specific detailed information to the FCC
regarding the stations 60 dBu signal contour. Since this
information must document the Transmitter Power Output used to
reach the assigned ERP and produce the 60 dBu contour map, it
provides us an opportunity to examine the antennas performance and
suitability in the field at FCC licensed installations.
following stations are some examples that have this information on
file with the FCC using
the NWE-34 antenna which can be viewed by clicking on their call
(previously licensed as WEZG), 4kw
backup site for KOLG,
The 60 dBu FCC signal contour specification shown on these main pages is a
very powerful local signal that does not represent the stations full usable
range. Computer models of the total estimated coverage are based
off the actual 60 dBu data on file with the FCC and show range all the way through the distant fringe zone.
To view those maps click on the "Show Advanced Coverage
Map" link once you're on the stations main page.
When you compare
the TPO against the licensed ERP producing this coverage and
factor in the variable of transmission line loss, the gain of the
NWE-34 becomes obvious. Stations are able to run their Transmitter Power Output
at little more than half the power
of their licensed ERP while still filling their 60 dBu coverage area
with a single bay antenna. This power gain requires two or four
bays when using other antennas. K265DW
is a unique case where a Translator was originally operating at half power
into a unity gain antenna to prevent interference to another station
to their Southwest. When they switched to the high gain NWE-34 in
2015, they had to relocate the Translator site to the Northeast to
maintain the protected contour using the same Transmitter Power
Output that now covered a larger area with the new antenna. This
stations "License to Cover" file BLFT-0150803AD
contains a Technical
Exhibit and RF
Whether you need a single antenna for a low power
station or need to stack multiple NWE-34 antenna bays for a 50 kw station, the Dominator
antenna has the ability to replace any existing configuration
while providing twice the Power Gain of a dipole and 4 times that of
a CP antenna. This
produces a noticeable increase in coverage area anytime the
Transmitter Power Output does not need to be reduced to stay within
existing ERP limits when the new Dominator is installed. Another way
to look at this is choosing the Dominator antennas allows the
station operator to use a transmitter with roughly half the power
output or install half the number of antennas to reach the same ERP
level of our competitors. These comparisons are referenced against
the unity gain dipole. When compared to a Circular Polarized antenna
with -3 dbd, the NWE-34 has four times the power gain. All CP
antennas will cut the Effective Radiated Power of your transmitter
in half while one NWE-34 antenna will double your ERP. To

often receive questions asking about how antenna polarization
affects a stations range. There are lots of variables that affect
range but polarization alone, is not one. Many LPFM stations report
that the NWE-34 provides more distant coverage to vehicles when
compared to CP antennas that were operating at the same ERP level.
That doesn't make sense on paper until we look at what's happening
in the field. The most common reason is that CP (and dipole)
antennas are mounted from their center and require the support structure
to be inline with the antennas. The NWE-34 has multiple mounting
options and does not require the tower to be obstructing its line of
sight or cause reflections and distortion in the pattern. That is a
definite, legal advantage. For more information regarding how your choice
of antenna polarization can impact the gain, Effective Radiated
Power and range of your station, please follow this link: Range
as to how the Dominator NWE-34 FM Transmitter Antenna achieves a
Power Gain of 2 with +3db over a dipole? The simple answer is due to the fact
it’s not one element radiating. This antenna design has a “non
apparent collinear effect” as quoted from L.
B. Cebik. Allowing the
entire antenna length to radiate in a constructive phase. For

Today our original product has had people
attempt to copy its design from China, to a rouge distributor in Slovenia. One has even become deceptive enough to market
their inferior counterfeits using the actual Dominator name. They have
all done a much better job of plagiarizing the written specifications
for the NWE-34 than they have of copying any antenna that could
reproduce them. None will match the longevity, performance or money
back satisfaction guarantee that the genuine Dominator provides. For information regarding
the differences noted with these counterfeits and feedback from customers
tricked into buying them, please click on the following link: Dominator
Purchasing on this factory direct website insures you’ll receive
the genuine Dominator NWE-34 antenna and not a counterfeit that's difficult to tune and could burn out your transmitter.
All antennas are
sold with a unique serial number (verifiable by email) that entitles
you to free access to our expert technical staff and money back
guarantee. Antennas purchased on this site receive free factory
