  • CATV Receive Antennas

    WADE Antenna specializes in commercial VHF/UHF cable television antennas for cable operators in Canada and the United States, providing solutions for TV broadcast signal reception and interference issues. The Wade Log Antenna was developed over 60 years ago: when tested by the Grand Alliance in 1996, it was found to be the optimum antenna for digital off-air reception.

  • Wireless Antennas

    We have developed several Wi-Fi and 2-way radio antennas for voice, data and video communication applications, particularly useful in the mining and rail industries. One of the largest and most successful examples is the unique train antenna, designed for Via Rail's 5.8 GHz mesh network application. Via still has our original product in use after four years without any known performance issues, even in the harsh Canadian environment.
