large radomes

Hello. I am in need of a rather large radome. It needs to cover a horizontal flat surface, so it does not need to be a full sphere or even half a sphere. It is more like covering a tennis court, except the area is round. Anyway, it needs to be about 30' across, and only high enough to shed rain and most snow. I could use fiberglass or an inflatable radome. I have a old quote for inflatable, and it is quite expensive (I am thinking of making my own). Does anybody know of any companies I could talk to or have any ideas or experience? Thanks for any suggestions.

RE: large radomes

Hi Mttocs,

You could try a company called Complas who are in the UK.

Complas Ltd : +44 (0)1993 778881

They are part of the Chelton Group, I am sure they have a website but I don't have any details.

However this place is not going to be cheap, but then I suppose that depends on your idea of cheap really!

RE: large radomes

you could try making it yourself using a built up mould this way you would get what you want without incurring costs of development - it would have to be very thick to support itself over this area
what frequency are you radiating/receiving?
