VHF receive antenna, 0.52 m, 87.5-108 MHz


The AR88108 is a robust and lightweight, omnidirectional, horizontally polarised receiving antenna for the FM broadcast band. Its low VSWR and good pattern gives it superior performance compared to other antennas for this application. AR88108 is used both on ships, vehicles and in portable applications with a mast. One use is the reception of differential GPS correction signals in those countries where these are sent via the FM broadcast network.
