Tuned to GMRS Band: Each antenna is tuned to the GMRS Band from 462 to 467 MHz. Will work with any radio designed or programmed for the GMRS band, including the Midland MicroMobile radio models: MXT100, MXT105, MXT115 & MXT400.
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've only been using this antenna for a day now but I must say I am very impressed. Although I don't have the antenna as high as I would like it right now, my repeater coverage really has gained a couple db. Can't imagine what it will be like when I can get it to the height I want! The receive on this antenna is also incredible. Just wanted to share that with you and anyone I come across looking for antenna solutions, I will make sure to send them your way. Thanks for such a great product."

"Back on July 29th (there-bouts), I purchased an GMRS antenna and 40ft. of cable from you. I just recently placed it onto an MFJ-1918EX stand and it all works wonderfully. I need to get the antenna just a bit higher, and can do, but need to work on it. Just a thanks for a great product and finally something working right for me."
