What Antenna and NMO Mount Should I Install That Will Connect to a Kentwood N800K Radio

Posted by Michael Crudele on

A customer wanted to know what antenna they could install utilizing an NMO mount that would connect to a Kentwood NX-800k radio, a radio similar to our MPLCJ8.

 

Our recommendations for antenna:

 

  • B4505CNS: This Laird antenna is a chrome 32 inch UHF whip antenna that doesn’t need a ground plane. It also features a spring base for bumpy roads.
  • B4502NS: This Laird/ Antenex B4502NS antenna is a 15 in long, chrome base coil omnidirectional whip antenna that operates in the 450-470 MHz frequency range. A metal ground plane is not required for this part.

 

Our NMO mount recommendations:

 

  • MB8PI: Laird-Antenex ¾ thru-hole NMO mount optimized for vehicular roof mounting of an NMO type antenna, typically used for VHF or UHF antennas.
  • NMOK:  A ¾ inch standard NMO mount for low frequency (<900 MHz) applications
  • G8PI: Laird-Antenex Magnetic NMO mount optimized for vehicular roof mounting of an NMO type antenna, typically used with VHF or UHF antennas
  • NMOKHFUDFME: This is a Pulse/ Larsen NMO cable kit with an FME connector. In order for it to work, you would simply add an FME to UHF/PL-259 adapter. The product part for the FME to PL-259 adaptor is FP.
