Tuned to UHF & VHF Air Bands: The uniquely designed MilTenna Omni is tuned to both the UHF 225-400 MHz and 118-137 MHz Air Bands. The latest version now also includes a third set of VHF elements dedicated to the 138-140 MHz VHF band. Most other VHF/UHF bands can typically be received as well. This antenna can be quite aesthetically pleasing compared to discones and other multi element antennas, and it's also more efficient. The VHF elements can be left off the antenna if desired.
DC Grounded: A metal ground plane is not needed with this design.
Wide Bandwidth: The core element of the MilTenna Omni design offers a wide bandwidth, which is what makes it appropriate for a band as large as the UHF 225-400 MHz Air Band.
Solid Construction: The antenna is constructed of 1 1/2" aluminum tube for the core element and solid 1/4" aluminum round is used for side elements. No flimsy tubing or dimple rivets are used. All aluminum is given a brushed finish.
Isolated Mast: The actual vertical structure is comprised of UV resistant plastic. This allows the actual elements to be raised into 'free space', away from your metal mounting mast.
Weather Resistant: All fasteners are stainless steel and the feed point is protected by shrink tube.
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.
Only Partial Assembly Required: The core antenna is completely assembled, along with the feeder cable. The only things that need to be done yourself are attaching the side elements, and putting up a mast.

"I put up the MilTenna Omni UHF/VHF air antenna this weekend. My son and I installed it in my attic and it receives better than my discone that is installed on the TV tower. I received it and the cable within days and the construction was great, not cheaply made. Thanks for the great product."

"Just thought I would write to say the new antenna is working wonderfully. Approx 35/40 feet up and with 75 feet of LMR600 attached, now have San Francisco and Oakland towers at end stop strength, and can hear San Jose quite clearly... and that's good, given a very large hill in the way and it's 25 miles away. Great product and great service."

"Just a note to say thank you for supplying me with my UHF/VHF airband antenna, which safely arrived yesterday lunchtime after a short delay being held up until I had paid the import duty. It was very well packaged and once opened, I assembled it in under 30 mins. I had a "white stick" airband colinear in the same location that I was using previously and I noted the signal strength of my local airport (Liverpool) ATIS transmission before I took it down and replaced it with your antenna. I am very pleased to say that the ATIS transmission is now 2 S-points up on the colinear and I am even hearing the ATIS transmissions from Manchester Airport which is some 50 miles away and even their ground and tower transmissions, which was not possible before with the colinear and... it's only mounted INSIDE!! I can't wait to buy the mounting hardware and erect it high up outside."
