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


The VHF30512DB-DD is a tactical dual-band vehicle and mast dipole 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 operates over the 30-88 MHz and 225-512 MHz frequency bands.
The antenna is designed as a dipole in both VHF and UHF bands so does not
require a ground plane.
Bases are available to suit different NATO mounting configurations on vehicles
with optional GNSS antennas such as GPS Ll-GALILEO El or GPS Ll-L2.
