Title: BASE STATION ANTENNAS THAT ARE CONFIGURABLE FOR EITHER INDEPENDENT OR COMMON DOWN TILT CONTROL AND RELATED METHODS
Abstract:
Methods of operating a base station antennas involve receiving a first control signal at the base station antenna, activating a first actuator to move a first mechanical linkage in response to the first control signal and activating a second actuator to move a second mechanical linkage in response to the first control signal. Pursuant to these methods, base station antenna can be configured for both independent or common control of the first and second actuators.
