VHF/UHF vehicle whip, high gain, monopole/dipole, 2.38 m, 30-88 MHz, 225-512 MHz


The VHF30512DB-HG is a tactical dual band 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 antenna operates over the 30-88 MHz and 225-512 MHz frequency bands.  The antenna is designed as a monopole in the VHF band, with performance similar to an end-fed VHF only antenna.  The UHF part is a high gain dipole.

Bases are available to suit different mounting configurations with optional L1 and L1/L2 GPS.
