GME unveils latest powerful antenna - AE3000

'AE3000 DL - GME’s latest Digital TV Antenna'    GME


GME continues to provide sailors with cutting-edge technology that enables great TV reception at the marina or on an anchor line, launching their latest powerful antenna ‘AE3000.’


Ever since television was introduced to Australia in 1956, boat owners have struggled to receive a decent signal when bobbing around at the marina or swinging on an anchor line. The reality is that TV reception on boats presents a totally different challenge to that of domestic reception; on board television reception has been plagued with picture fading, ghosting and interference.

Standard Communications Pty Ltd, GME’s corporate entity has been at the forefront of the television reception industry, since it’s foundation in 1959. This 50 plus years of expertise is clearly reflected in the recently launched AE3000 digital TV antenna.

Greg East, GME’s senior TV design engineer, who alone has over 40 years of TV antenna and amplifier development experience expanded further on the AE3000; 'With the switch off of analogue TV transmissions and the full transition to digital TV to be completed in Australia and New Zealand by late 2013. It was essential that any new amplified antenna design utilise the latest low noise componentry to ensure optimum performance in both strong and weak signal conditions.'

The stylish Australian designed and manufactured AE3000 operates across the 174 to 860 MHz Free-to-Air digital TV band. It comprises of an Omni-directional dual loop antenna combined with a 20dB amplifier housed in an attractive weather and UV resistant radome.

East continued: 'We based our amplifier design on advanced GaAs MESFET technology which has exceptional frequency handling characteristics, high signal to noise ratios coupled with superior third order intermodulation properties, providing outstanding interference immunity across all channels. Such technology is often found in high specification military communications and radar systems.'

Operating from a 12 volt DC supply and measuring a mere 280mm in diameter by 55mm high, the lightweight AE3000 has the advantage of multiple mounting options making it equally suitable for marine, caravan or RV installations.

As one would expect from GME, full installation hardware is provided, and all screws and bolts are of Marine grade stainless steel.

The antenna is fed by a 10 metre length of low loss coaxial cable which carries power to the integrated amplifier and feeds the signals to the television receiver.

The AE3000 is now available through GME’s national dealer network, further information can be found at GME AE3000
