  • $169.95


Gain:  7 dBi SWR:  1.5:1 or Less on Center Pattern:  Omni-directional
Wavelength:  Multiple 1/2 Tuned:  851-869 MHz Band:  800 MHz Safety
Connector:  N Female Cable:  RG8X Cable Length:  24 Inches
Height:  57" Width:  1 1/4" Weight:  2 lb
Wind Area:  0.50 Sq Feet    


Ready Made:  There's no assembly necessary, or extra mounting parts needed.

Tuned for 800 MHz Public Safety:  Each antenna is designed to be used for the 800 MHz Public Safety base band of: 851 to 869 MHz. This would cover such systems as: New York City DoITT, Los Angeles 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.

"Got the antenna today and installed. Signal is at least 2 bars stronger to full strength on my SDS200 and I am picking up counties I wasn’t able to before. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks for a great product!"

"Just to give you some feedback... I followed your included directions to a T. The antenna works awesome, 700 MHz included. I am using ½ inch Heliax with a ½ inch flexible Heliax jumper up at the antenna. The run is about 65-70 feet. Using a 3 foot RG400 jumper (N-Male to BNC-male) at the radio end. Picks up awesomely in all directions. Some sites I have to add attenuation because the signal strength is too strong. I am using this to replace 2 yagi’s, which work well, but obviously are directional. Plus I installed this new antenna 15 feet higher than the existing yagi’s."

"Just wanted to thank you for the antenna. I've struggled to get my Mass State Police trunking system in my sunken valley location... Hahah. I've tried many antennas and ideas. This is the one. Very happy to listen now, especially in the early AM, without the crackling and static. Even the low power of the Troop F at Logan Airport.
