ASC Signal Corporation has secured a major contract with ShenTai International Company, one of Asia's leading providers of HF radio systems, for the design, construction and delivery of a major HF antenna infrastructure project. Under the agreement, ASC will provide, among other components, 60 of the company's Model 3794 for coastal communications systems used by the government in China.

Known over four decades for its design innovations, ASC leveraged the durability and performance of its line of HF products to ensure reliable operation in rugged coastal conditions. ASC's Model 3794, one of 26 HF antennas in the ASC product line, provides high-power area coverage transmission, particularly suited to ship-to-shore, ground-to-air and HF broadcast applications.

The broad frequency range permits use of the optimum frequency for any distance, while the radiation patterns are suitable for sky-wave propagation at medium and low ranges, supplemented by ground-wave propagation at short ranges. This was considered essential to the needs of the end-user.

"Providing mission-critical HF, satellite and radar antenna systems for government and commercial customers around the world is one of our core strengths," said Keith Buckley, President and CEO of ASC Signal.

"I am proud of our engineering and sales team because they have made our HF antenna products the product of choice for vital defense, aircraft and emergency systems. We are also proud to have been selected by yet another government that recognized ASC's solid, long-lasting product performance."

"During Shen Tai's 10 years' of experience with HF antenna system projects for the Chinese military, we have found that ASC Signal's antennas are among the best performing and highest-quality products in the world," said Helen Du, Chief Technical Director of ShenTai International Company.

"The HF antenna model 3794 was introduced to China in 2007 and has proven itself as one of the most reliable antennas in medium-range communication for our customers."
