VHF/UHF vehicle whip, dual-band, dipole/dipole, GPS, 2.9 m, 30-88 MHz, 225-512 MHz


Setting a new standard for platform independent wideband communication, the VHF30512DB-DD combines two independent dipole antennas to offer a complete VHF/UHF solution.

Providing consistent communication performance across both the 30-88 MHz and 225-512 bands, the antenna is suitable for use on all modern in-service military platforms, including armoured or soft skin, metal chassis or composite, wheeled or tracked.  As the antenna does not rely on any monopole element it does not require a ground plane.

A wide range of bases are available to suit different NATO mounting configurations. Antenna bases can be provided with optional integrated GNSS antennas such as GPS L1-GALILEO E1 or GPS L1-L2.
