Wideband monopole whip, 30-108 MHz

AD-44/CW Series

The AD-44/CW family represents wideband monopole whips, primarily intended for use with portable and handheld radios in VHF frequency range from 30 to 90 (108) MHz.  Electrically the antenna is optimised for all deployment conditions (radio in hand, at the side, at the breast etc.) so it is not necessary for additional tuning.  The antenna is composed of a radiating part made of a special steel multilayer tape material covered with a plastic sleeve ensuring high flexibility and ruggedness.  The antenna has a built-in special passive transformer tuning network enclosed in fibreglass housing above the input coaxial connector.  A gooseneck could be added to ensure the antenna is always in the vertical position regardless of the position of the radio station.  The input connector is TNC male (or modified TNC male), other types (N or BNC male) are available on request.
