Tuned for VHF Aviation ACARS: Each antenna is tuned to the VHF Air Band focusing on ACARS from 130 to 132 MHz for receive. If you require an ACARS antenna that is tuned specifically to another frequency, such as 129.x or 136.x, please contact us.
DC Grounded: A metal ground plane is not needed with this design.
Enclosed Elements: The actual antenna elements and feed point are sealed inside a UV resistant plastic radome. No need to worry about corrosion on the elements with this design.
Weather Resistant: Having the elements and feed point sealed in the radome allows the antenna to be very resistant to weather and other environmental damage. This antenna is strong enough to withstand an ice storm, and will also do well in a shoreline environment.
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.
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, on the end of a small cable pigtail. N connectors are more water resistant and handle high frequencies better. Need help choosing your main cable? Checkout the Coax FAQ.
Includes Mounting Hardware: Price includes mounting clamps to allow attaching the antenna to any standard 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" mounting mast.
