A New Generation of Hydros

Paraclipse introduces a new line of Hydroformed antennas and mounts to meet the challenges of high powered satellites and digital signals. Galvanealed steel reflectors, manufactured into perfect paraboloids and supported by strong, lightweight Polar and AZ-EL mounts, add up to picture perfect reception.

These antennas, the smallest ever made by Paraclipse, offer the necessary gain and efficiencies needed to overcome rain fade and lost signals in fringe areas of reception.

This new generation of Hydro antenna will help to expand usage of Paraclipse antennas in areas not serviced in the past. The Hydro's one piece design allows for fast, easy installation.
