    Omni -ID Rochester, NY, England and China has completed the purchase of PAR's OA-433 horizontal Omni.
    Omni-ID ( is a leading supplier of RF-ID systems. They cited the OA-433's best in industry azimuth pattern and freedom from common mode mast/feedline radiation as the criteria for purchasing the design. The antennas will be manufactured in China for distribution through out the world.

    The OA-433 was part of PAR's line of horizontally polarized omnidirectional antennas. PAR still manufactures the amateur versions from 6M through 70cM. Unlike other 'loop' designs, the Omniangles feature a near perfect azimuth pattern with no mast common mode and a built in balun to attenuate coaxial feedline common mode. Azimuth patterns and technical specifications are on their site at:

    I see one of those antennas on the local swap meet tables. I wonder if I should buy it now so I can say I got one before the "made in China" versions were released? ;)

    Well, if you are buying commercial band antennas, yes. This sale is unrelated to amateur products as stated in the original post.

    I have owned & used (2) of the PAR OA-50 antennas over the years & they performed great on my mobile setups.PAR is a great company to deal with as well.

    Actually, this antenna is cut for 433.925 MHz and is identical to the 70cm version. I know because I bought some many years ago for an RFID project the company I worked for at the time installed. I selected the PAR unit for the project and used them in pairs to provide more or less omni-polar performance as well as omni-directional coverage. 433.925 is a common Part 15 Low Power device frequency, by the way.
