The VHF3088VM/CEF is a VHF vehicle 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 is a special version of the VHF3088VM which uses the CEF type connection between the base and lower whip element (see page 2 for base options). Bases are available for vehicle, mast and fixed mounting with optional L1 and L1/L2 GPS.
The VHF3088VM/CEF antenna is a dipole design so does not require a ground plane to operate.
