Thank you to everyone who entered the Norsat and Sinclair photo contest! We received over 30 submissions from a variety of applications. All the photos submitted were great! Our two winners are….
Robert from DCI Teleports who sent us the winning photo for Norsat!
Robert captured this photo of their Norsat satellite terminal while covering the news of the earthquake in Equador in 2016. Thank you for capturing this action shot and broadcasting live updates to the rest of the world. Great job Robert!
Ron from the Yukon Amateur Radio Association who sent us the winning photo for Sinclair Technologies!
This photo was taken at Mount Decoli at 8200 feet, near Haines Junction in Yukon, Canada. This application is very demanding as the equipment is installed at a very high altitude. Thank you to the Yukon Amateur Radio Association for entering such a beautiful photo!
Again, thank you to everyone who entered our photo contest and congratulations to the winners, Robert and Ron. The winners have been notified and they will both receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
Over 16 vendors attended TESSCO’s Wireless Open House event on Thursday February 16, 2017 in Baltimore, Maryland. Sinclair Technologies‘ Director of Sales & Marketing USA, Sal Farina, was at the event showcasing Sinclair’s top-of-the-line RF antennas and solutions. It was a great opportunity to meet the sales and product teams and to learn more about customer needs. Congratulations to TESSCO Technologies on the successful event!
In 2005, NAV CANADA’s radar coverage of Hudson Bay was limited to line-of-sight (LOS) and did not cover the entire Hudson Bay area. The Company used VHF communication sites around Hudson Bay and HF communications for areas that were not covered by VHF. During a testing phase, the system produced a result that was less than expected as the coverage was effected by ice buildup on the antenna. Sinclair Technologies was approached to provide a high gain antenna that would be able to withstand ice buildup and to provide the expected coverage. Read more on how Sinclair solved NAV CANADA’s antenna problem.
Norsat and Deviser Partner to Provide Next Generation Spectrum Monitoring System For Distributed Mission-Critical Applications
For over 60 years, Norsat’s Sinclair division based in Aurora, Ontario has provided high performance and ruggedized antennas to various industries globally. Our antennas are some of the best on the market, and will stand up to severe environmental conditions.
Sinclair supplied Deviser Instruments, a major test and measurement solutions provider with our SP4704 antenna for Deviser’s newly announced DS1620 SpectrumPROFILER remote spectrum monitoring system. Deviser’s DS1620 SpectrumPROFILER remote spectrum monitoring system significantly reduces the time, cost and complexity associated with the standard approach of detecting, identifying and removing interference signals originating from licensed or unlicensed communications systems. This enables mission-critical operators to eliminate signal interference in a matter of hours rather than weeks, while simultaneously improving overall service reliability and customer satisfaction.
The SP4704 is externally mounted and covers frequency range from 698 to 960 MHz, weighs less than 7 pounds and provides high gain and high front-to-back ratio giving users excellent performance and increased signal strength. The SP4704 is directionally controlled by the DS1620 System to detect and locate signal interference. Norsat worked closely with Deviser to develop and customize the SP4704 high performance antenna to meet their unique specifications.

When speaking with Mike Tolaio, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Deviser Instruments Inc, he quoted, “We are pleased to partner with Norsat’s Sinclair division to provide this high performance signal monitoring system for mission-critical applications. Norsat’s reputation in the industry for quality products, and their willingness to work with us on this system was a key factor in our decision to choose Norsat.” says Mike Tolaio.

The Critical Communications World conference has just wrapped in up in RAI Amsterdam and we would like to thank everyone who stopped by the Sinclair Technologies booth! Compared to last year, we felt that the show was much more successful. The organizers reported a higher attendance and this seemed to be reflected in the increased foot traffic.
Throughout the course of the show there were many people who stopped by the Sinclair booth and were quite interested in our antenna and RF conditioning products. Many of these prospects were predominately from Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, South Africa and Thailand. Attendees were excited about our latest product offerings with a couple past customers coming to the booth hoping to partner with Sinclair again on the next phase of their project. This shows the long-term nature of the business especially with larger projects.
Some of the guests who visited the booth spoke about the long lead times with other companies. Sinclair is aware of this industry issue and has taken steps to reduce the lead times, so customers get their products faster. Another trend that we discussed at the show was systems that need to cover multiple bands with emergency services on one band and private operators on the other. Conversations were a plenty with discussions on opportunities for antennas and filtering systems from all over the region.
We had a great time visiting with prospects and customers and are looking forward to seeing everyone again next year.
