VHF/UHF sectional vehicle whip, high power, monopole/dipole, 2.66 m, 27-512 MHz


The VHF27512CEF is an ultra wideband vehicle antenna designed for use on all modern in-service military platforms, including armoured or soft skin, metal chassis or composite, wheeled or tracked.

The novel design gives it an excellent gain and radiation pattern across the whole frequency range.  The antenna needs no adjustment for different frequencies as all the tuning elements are within the whip.  The high power capability of this antenna is particularly suited to jamming applications.

A standard NATO 4-hole spring base (NTS) is available as well as a NATO 4-hole rigid (NTR) base.
