The VHF30512CEF 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.
Bases are available to suit different mounting configurations with optional dual feed connectors and L1 and L1/L2 GPS. Optional EMP protection in the base is also available.
