Abstract
(EN)
An antenna assembly is disclosed that comprises a terrestrial antenna (14) and a support that mounts the antenna assembly on a satellite dish antenna (12). The satellite dish antenna has a convex/concave configuration, a periphery, a front signal receiving surface. The terrestrial antenna comprises a pair of dipoles (28a, 28b). A power amplifier (68) has an input connected to the terrestrial antenna to receive and amplify its terrestrial video signal. A diplexer (70) is further provided and has first and second input terminals and an output terminal. The second input terminal is connected to the power amplifier to receive the amplified terrestrial video signal. The first input terminal is adapted to be connected to the satellite dish to receive the satellite video signal. The diplexer operates to sum the amplified terrestrial signal and the satellite video signal to provide an aggregate signal to the output terminal.

On décrit un ensemble antenne formé d'une antenne terrestre (14) et d'un support qui supporte l'ensemble antenne sur une antenne parabolique orientable (12). L'antenne parabolique orientable présente une configuration convexe/concave, une périphérie, une surface avant de réception du signal. L'antenne terrestre comprend une paire de dipôles (28a, 28b). Un amplificateur de puissance (68) est doté d'une entrée qui est connectée à l'antenne terrestre pour recevoir et amplifier son signal vidéo terrestre. Un diplexeur (70) est également utilisé et comporte des première et deuxième bornes d'entrée et une borne de sortie. La deuxième borne d'entrée est connectée à l'amplificateur de puissance pour recevoir le signal vidéo terrestre amplifié. La première borne d'entrée est adaptée pour être connectée à la parabole afin de recevoir le signal vidéo du satellite. Le diplexeur fait la somme du signal terrestre amplifié et du signal vidéo du satellite pour fournir un signal composite à la borne de sortie.
