UHF vehicle whip, dipole, 1.6 m, 225-400 MHz


The LB2244SF2 is a high gain UHF wide-band tactical dipole whip antenna designed for use on all modern in-service military platforms, including armoured or soft skin, metal chassis or composite, wheeled or tracked.  The antenna is designed to work with all UHF hopping combat radio in the range 225-400 MHz.

The antenna is an elevated high gain dipole which reduces distortion of the radiation patterns that could be caused by the environment of a vehicle.

The whip is made of high resistance fibreglass reinforced epoxy resin.

An optional mast adaptor is available to elevate the whip.
