Tuned for 400/500 MHz Public Safety: Each antenna is designed to be used for the 400/500 MHz Public Safety base band of: 470 to 512 MHz. This would cover such systems as: Los Angeles City PD, Los Angeles County Sheriff, New York City PD, New York City Fire, Boston City Fire, and many others.
No Ground Plane Needed: 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. This design also helps control friction induced static, which can be created by wind and dust.
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.
Brass Elements: The inner elements are made from brass, 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. Note: Due to the high frequency that these systems operate at, and the potential losses that can occur through cable, it is highly recommended that at least an RG8 size coax cable be used.

Includes Mounting Hardware: Price includes mounting clamps to allow attaching the antenna to any standard 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" mounting mast.

"We finally had a cooler, less humid day here, so I installed the 400/500 antenna. I am very pleased with the results. I have only been listening to my 400 MHz radios for one hour. But, I can already detect signal improvements in my regular stations, and I hear a few stations that I previously did not hear."
