Ready Made: There's no assembly necessary, or extra mounting parts needed.
Tuned to 2 Meter Ham Band: Each antenna is tuned to the 2 Meter Ham Band centered at 146 MHz.
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.

"I got my 2 meter outdoor base antenna installed exactly one week ago, and I’m getting outstanding performance hitting repeaters over 75 miles away with clarity in mountainous terrain. The top of the antenna is only 13’ high and my SWR is 1.15. As I told you earlier, I’m a newly licensed Tech and I’m trying to figure out if I made a wise decision or just got lucky. Probably a combination of the two. Your antenna goes far beyond my expectations. Thank you for the excellent product!"

"I just wanted to follow up with you on the two antennas you sent. They arrived in fine condition and you'll be happy to know they're standing tall at 40-ft. The SWR as mounted on the 2-meter appears to be right around 1.5 from the shack and the train antenna seems to work fine."
