FEATURES

Flexible Design: The new UHF LP Plus model, replaces the old UHF (only) LP model. The new 'Plus' model was designed in direct response to people's requests for an antenna that can focus on hunting down distant UHF systems, but also give basic performance on other bands as well. The UHF section is a directional LP design and duplicates our old UHF model. Unlike Yagi designs, the LP design has more useful lobes to the sides and back. This gives the antenna a better 360 degree omni ability, with the added benefit of gain in the direction it's aimed. Then comes the 'plus' part... There's an added VHF section that's tuned for basic 150-175 MHz omni performance as well. If you don't need VHF, there's also an extra set of short UHF elements you can use for added 700-950 omni coverage. The UHF Plus LP can also make a good railroad voice/ATCS monitoring antenna.

Customization Potential: The VHF omni elements can be completely left off if you desire, with no effect on the UHF section. A second optional set of short UHF elements are included, which you can choose to substitute for the VHF elements in the rear position, if you're just looking for added omni ability on UHF. There's also the possibility of offering a custom omni ability on this antenna, other than 150-175 MHz... such as VHF Air or other bands. You can email us to inquire about that.

Wide Coverage: This antenna is optimized for use in the 700 to 950 MHz range, which makes it a good choice for all the new trunking/digital systems in use today. The VHF omni section still allows you to have good performance there as well.

Wide Bandwidth: The nature of the LP design offers a wide bandwidth. Not only is it wide in the band it was designed to operate in, but it also does pretty well in nearby bands. This will help if there's other bands you're interested in.

Solid Construction: The antenna is constructed of twin 3/4" square aluminum tube for the booms, and solid 1/4" aluminum round is used for the elements. The boom is very stiff, as are the elements. 1/4" stainless bolts and lock nuts are utilized, not flimsy dimple rivets. The entire antenna is carefully hand crafted and all aluminum is given a brushed finish.

Weather Resistant: All fasteners are stainless steel and UV resistant cable clips are used to hold the coax to the boom.

High Quality N Connector: Instead of the usual UHF connector that's included with most antennas, this antenna includes a 50 ohm female N connector. N connectors are more water resistant and handle high frequencies better. Need help choosing your main cable? Checkout the Coax FAQ

Horizontal Mount: A horizontal mast piece consisting of aluminum plate is included with the antenna. This acts as a stand-off and allows the the antenna to be positioned away from your mast in free space and vertical polarization.

Electrically Isolated: The antenna is electrically isolated from the horizontal and vertical masts.

Mounting Hardware: The necessary hardware for attaching the antenna to any standard 1 1/4" steel mast is also included. Just prepare your mast and you're all set to go.

Only Partial Assembly Required: The boom is completely assembled, along with the feeder cable and mount. The only things that need to be done yourself are attaching the elements, and putting up a mast.

TESTIMONIALS
(Includes old UHF LP model)

"I received my DPD productions LP 700-1000 MHz antenna today and all I can say is WOW! First of all, thanks Dave! This is one well crafted antenna. A snap to put together and very well built. An absolute bargain if you ask me. I've mounted it up in the attic on a 5 foot PVC mast and I'm feeding it with 50 feet of LMR-400. For the first time ever, I'm receiving our local 700MHz P25 simulcast sites without a single issue. Everything in my area is either 700 P25 or 800 P25 with a few 800 EDACS systems. All are crystal clear. I'm even picking up a few sites that I wasn't able to even come close to receiving prior to putting this bad boy up."
Paul S. - Lakewood, CO

"Decided to hook up the scanner just to see how well your UHF LP performs compared to the old K-Town which has never been beat. Here are the stats for comparison: K-Town 60' high on tower with 80' RG6 low loss, 20db pre-amp vs. UHF LP held in my hand pointed out bedroom window, which is about 15' above ground and shooting through 1,500 70' Oak trees, with 80' LMR 400 coiled up, hooked 20 db pre-amp in line. Results: At 800 Mhz digital signals UHF LP is clear winner! It was picking up public safety strongly from as far as 60 air miles away through the trees! On 2-Meter FM analog public safety, K-Town slightly better, but UHF LP picked up all the same channels with some signal loss. I can't wait to get the UHF LP up on the tower now. Good job! One side note: No antenna, including the K-Town has ever picked up 800 Mhz signals from my bedroom window before."
Russell J. - East Bethel, MN

"I just received my 700-1000mhz LP several days ago and finally put it up on 1" sch 40 electrical pvc and it's working wonders for me. I'm receiving the Tacoma Public Safety trunk from my home which is 30+ miles away. I couldn't get this at all with my RS discone antenna."
Nick C. - Bellevue, WA

"I received my antenna Monday and put it up the same day. The antenna works great. In fact, this is the first time since the Sheriffs Office has gone to the digital radio system that I have been able to listen to the scanner without garble and missing parts of the transmission. My scanner operates 24/7 and is never off, and I would recommend this antenna to anyone if they are having problems receiving signals. I live in a valley and have my antenna 30 feet off the ground and I am about 25 miles from the transmitting antenna."

TESTIMONIALS

"Just a note to let you know how extremely satisfied I am with my purchase of the OmniX Multi Band Scanner Antenna.  I ordered it on a Sunday, it arrived on a Wed... 3-day service, outstanding. I installed it today and it is a superb antenna. I am impressed with its assembly, good looks and terrific performance. The improvement on my scanners and wide band radios is dramatic compared to the antenna I was using. Thanks for a great product and great service."
Tom O. - Longmont, CO

"Antenna received! Great service and great quality product! It's too cold here to be outside installing antennas, so it's just leaning against the wall in the corner of my office, and yet it still adds an extra couple of bars on signal strength. Impressive antenna."
Richard T. - Winnipeg, MB

"Just a quick note to say thank you. I purchased an Omni-X from you months ago, and finally installed it today. The antenna and instructions are first class and it's already out-performing the 20-176 it replaced and the ST-2 it sits just above... and I'm sure it will outlast them both in our high-wind installation. I'm picking up things I've never heard before."
Bill C. - Harveys Lake, PA

"I have the OmniX setup in my attic. Much better reception than my previous antenna, including 800 Mhz. Very happy!"
John M. - Wayside, NJ

"I received my order and I'm very happy with it. I'm using it inside at this time, but will be mounting outside soon. It's well made and seems to work very well. Thanks for the good service and a very good product."

Cable Length: 18 Feet Height: 52" Width: 1 1/4"
Depth: 3/8"    

FEATURES

Unique Design: This antenna is designed for anyone who's interested in getting good performance on their scanner or radio, but isn't able to use an outdoor antenna. This is a great antenna for people who live in apartments or condos. The Blade can also be used as a travel antenna, or even outdoors for short periods of time.

Tuned to NOAA Weather Band: Each antenna is tuned to the VHF NOAA Weather Radio Band on 162 MHz. This antenna can improve performance on any radio that receives the NOAA Weather Station Broadcasts, and has an external antenna input.

Ready Made: There's no assembly necessary and 18 feet of coax (with BNC connector) is included. (Email to possibly request other connector types.)

Easy to Position: The beauty of the way this antenna works, is the fact that you can position it anywhere. Unlike using a rubber duck, you can find the one good spot in the room that gets the best reception, but still put the radio anywhere you like. This can also be helpful if you're trying to move the antenna away from RF producing devices. There's also no ground plane elements sticking out to poke you. The antenna can easily be hung using the two loops on the back.

Unobtrusive: The Blade design is very slim and stealthy. The antenna is only 1 1/4" wide and a mere 3/8" deep. It can easily be hidden behind blinds, but is also attractive enough to be displayed in clear view. The antenna's bright white enclosure blends right into the surroundings.

Copper Elements: Elements are copper clad, which is a better element material than stainless steel.

Narrow Bandwidth: The bandwidth for the antenna is fairly narrow, which can help to eliminate intermod problems from adjacent strong signals in urban areas.

18' of RG8/X Cable: This cable is better for longer lengths than the average off brand RG58 cable included with most antennas (if any), and helps prevent signal loss.

Direct Feed Point Connection: The coax is directly connected to the antenna elements, which means there's one less connector between your radio and the antenna. Each additional connector can create signal loss.

TESTIMONIALS

"I just put up one of DPD productions new 118-1000 MHz LP antennas. This is one great antenna for the money. Great looks and very easy to put together. Performance wise from 30-860 MHz... excellent. I pick up low band state police just as good as a discone. VHF air... fantastic... able to hear controllers and planes on the ground. UHF air just as good. 860 MHz trunking... great. As far as other freqs... VHF high, UHF, VHF low... really good. If you are looking for a real good LP but don't want to break the bank, check out this antenna."
John H. - Timonium, MD

"What I do know is that my recent antenna upgrade to a DPD Productions Scanner LP Model Antenna is AWESOME for working CG Sector SFO. The LP Model definitely out performs my old RS Discone. With the Discone I could "hear" Sector, but NOT the CG Stations in the Bay area, like I can now, with the LP. The audio with the LP Model as compared to the Discone, is like the difference in picture quality between analog and HD on your TV."
Bill T. - Rancho Cordova, CA

"I just wanted to first thank you for making a great antenna. I own and work with a scantenna and was very skeptical in purchasing one of your antennas. After reading reviews on Radio Reference and looking at photos of the antenna construction I was convinced. I have purchased the 118-1000 MHz Scanner LP Model Antenna and I will say I have not been disappointed. I didn't think that anything could come close to the scantenna, but it has."
Bret E. - Braham, MN

"It's excellent! I really, really like this thing. It's just as they describe on the site. There's good all around omni coverage with good gain to the front. Another thing that surprised me is the good high frequency response. I'm sitting here with two radios tuned to a very distant 800 Mhz system. One is on the DPD the other is on the RFS 1610-1 4 dbd gain omni. The omni is about four or five feet lower than the DPD but they are both performing the same. That really shocked me. I was expecting the commercial antenna to really outshine the DPD even though it's a bit lower in elevation. So far, VHF and UHF have been outstanding too. It's nice to have good performance across ALL the bands. Usually you find a spot where things kind of degrade but so far all ranges seem to be equally good. I was really impressed with the build quality. I didn't realize it has solid elements. That's a nice feature. It just feels like you actually have something of quality when you get it together instead of the pop can aluminum you get with other stuff."
Casey C. - Ottawa, KS

"I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago, so far it is amazing! I don't even look at the signal meter anymore because it is always five bars. I am using FreeScan to log hits and the RSSI meter is average 700-800. There is very little fuzz on some channels but for the most part, no fuzz at all. Is this the best antenna for all scanners? For me right now... Yes! This is far and away better than anything I've tried with other antennas. I really like the fact that no matter what I want to listen to (Fire/Police/air/Military/etc.) I can with this antenna. I could go into details about bands and results but no need, they all work just great. My most distant catch was an aircraft over 100 miles north of me. What else is there I really like this antenna!"
Don S. - Henderson, NV

"Recently, I purchased your log periodic scanner antenna which I have put up on my tower with my amateur antennas. It is working out beautifully. Having it up high, with some directional capability and wide frequency coverage, has made all the difference in hearing stations I cannot hear on my roof-mounted Austin Ferret. The build quality is terrific and it was a cinch to put together. I like it so much that I just placed an order for your military air band log periodic. I plan to dedicate a scanner or two to military aircraft listening and will use the new log for that."

"I don't write many reviews. I don't thank many for their products. I just purchase them, use them, like them, or never use them again. But I wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I am truly impressed and happy with your antenna. I've been enjoying the scanner hobby since I was 7 years old when Dad bought me my first Regency 4 channel crystal type scanner. At 46, I'm still loving it, always trying new antennas, radios and 'goodies'. This is the FIRST antenna that I have literally, seen NIGHT AND DAY results!"
