What's the most powerful base station antenna for 450 Mhz UHF radios?

Posted by Michael Crudele on

We sell lots of 450 Mhz UHF antennas here at Arcadian, including the ever-popular Laird Technologies / Antenex mobile load coil, whip, and rubber duck 450 MHz antenna models HERE. However, those are all located at the remote device...which could be a pager system or walkie talkie, or even a piece of surveying equipment.  However, it's the base station side that is a bit more of a challenge.
It’s certainly not easy finding 440 mhz flat panel antennas. So, for 450 MHz base station applications, your best bet is going to be 450 MHz fiberglass omni antennas or 450 MHz yagi antenns.
Here are my recommendations:
First, there are the omnidirectional antennas. Our most popular is the FG4500:

 FG4500: 450 MHz, unity gain, 26 inch long fiberglass omnidirectional antenna FG4500 - LAIRD Technologies: Antenex, Centurion, Cushcraft and Pacific Wireless


But for a high-gain 450 MHz unit, I’d recommend the “Silver Series” Yagis from Laird Technologies (Formerly Antenex)
Specifically, these are our most popular models…

 YS4303: 430-450 Mhz, 3 elements, 7.1 dbd gain (MSRP: $108.84)*
YS4305: 430-450 Mhz, 5 elements, 9.2 dbd gain (MSRP: $125.00)*
YS4305 - LAIRD Technologies: Antenex, Centurion, Cushcraft and Pacific Wireless

*You should be able to get our “Silver” re-seller pricing once you set up an account with us.
Please note that even if we don't have stock on these models, they are MADE IN THE USA, and can ship in about 3 weeks.
We also have an entire section of our website dedicated to omnidirectional antennas for 450 MHz range. Browse our collection here!
As a side note, our most popular 450mhz antenna is the Laird # G450BN for paging base stations

Laird G450BN 10 Inch Tuf Duck Style, Base Loaded 450-470 MHz Outdoor BNC connector rubber Antenna for UHF Radios & Modems G450BN - LAIRD Technologies: Antenex, Centurion, Cushcraft and Pacific Wireless
