Clair Global CF 1090 Fractal Antenna

In the summer of 2010, Clair Global acquired Wireless First. Both the company's founder, Kevin Sanford, and his chief engineer, Josh Flower, have been working on a new wireless antenna in their shop for several years, along with Dr. Nathan Cohen, founder of Fractal Antenna Systems Inc. Using fractal technologies, whereby self-similar scaling of antenna elements reduces housing size and increases frequency range, the CF 1090 is circular-polarized and orientation insensitive.

The CF 1090 delivers higher gain across a significantly wider and more uniform coverage pattern when compared to existing technologies. It is band-optimized for communications, wireless microphones and wireless monitoring systems. At 15x15x2.7 inches and four pounds, the CF 1090 is easy to mount in a multitude of ways. Bandwidth spans 470 to 928 MHz, and half-power beam width measures 90 degrees.

Sanford employed the new CF 1090 at the Christmas in Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting ceremony for NBC on November 30, where it was the main transmit antenna for 32 drops of wireless intercom, six IFBs and 16 channels of IEMs, as well as acting as receive antennas for 12 channels of redundant microphone receivers on 5th Avenue. The same gear was featured at the CMT Artist of the Year Award television show in early December.
