Sky Sat Communications of Montenegro appoints InnovAntennas Exclusive Distributor for its Advanced Contest Solutions Product Line in the North American and United Kingdom Markets
Sky Sat Communications, founded by internationally renown amateur radio contester Ranko Boca, 4O3A, today announced the appointment of InnovAntennas as exclusive distributor of its Advanced Contest Solutions line of ultra high performance Filters, Switches and Automation & Control Devices that ‘no serious shack should be without’ for the North American and United Kingdom markets with immediate effect.
The Sky Sat 4O3A product line is the result of many years of contest winning experience and development. The pitfalls of underperforming mainstream products have been overcome to provide high-performing products giving serious contesters––and DXers––trouble-free functionality to ensure the points––and new DXCCs––keep racking up! In two short years Sky Sat’s customer base has expanded to include many of the world’s leading contesters and contest stations including 4O3A, OH8X, ES5TV, PY5EG, S51A, WX3B, YT3M, DR1A, LZ9W, LX8I, K3WW, UA3AB, S52X, CR2X, II9P, et al.
Sky Sat’s CEO Ranko Boca, 4O3A said “I have been looking for the right partners to expand Sky Sat’s reach into North America and the United Kingdom for some time and was delighted to discover that InnovAntennas, with operations on both sides of the Atlantic, could cover both markets. InnovAntennas fully understand the needs of contesters and DXers, the amateur radio world’s most demanding customers, and are well suited to provide sales and support for our products.”
InnovAntennas is now stocking and supporting the Sky Sat 4O3A filter products and will be making available the balance of the product line during the second half of 2012. Available immediately are the High Power 5-pole and 3-pole Monoband Band Pass Filters (Series S & Series L) for the HF contest bands: 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m and 10m, and the High Power HF Triplexer/Combiner. Stations using Tribander antennas to cover 20m, 15m and 10m can use the High Power HF Triplexer/Combiner in combination with Series S filters to operate simultaneously with a high level of isolation on all three bands with multiple transceivers sharing the same antenna – perfect for serious contest efforts from home, Field Day and DXpeditions. All 4O3A filters, including the Triplexer/Combiner, are rated for full legal power at high duty cycle modes such as RTTY.
InnovAntennas America cofounder & executive chairman William Hein said “InnovAntennas strives to sell only the absolute best, no compromise antennas and accessories and have found a kindred spirit in Ranko, 4O3A. My new personal contest station in Colorado is being designed around 4O3A-designed products in the shack and of course our own InnovAntennas products in the air. We look forward to a long, productive relationship with Sky Sat and can’t wait to see what comes next out of Ranko’s lab!”
