Note: Field tuning is REQUIRED for this antenna, see tuning guide below:

This unit is a Black 'Phantom' style / Stealth VHF Omni-directional antenna with standard 3/4 inch NMO-mobile mount operating at 150-168 Mhz range. This antenna is a 'Soup Can' style and offers a powerful punch with up to 3 dBi of gain. Please note that this model REQUIRES mounting on metallic ground plane for best performance. The Phantom series offers ultra-rugged ABS construction which is virtually indestructible and has a proven track record for holding up in the field for many years in any conditions. 3/4 inch NMO Cable kits and mounting hardware or magnetic mounts for this antenna can be purchased separately. (DO NOT use NMO mag-mounts with pull-tab, the antenna is too large)

More Information

The low profile, omni-directional, Phantom Antenna product line, was originally introduced by Antenex, and later acquired by Laird Technologies. The Phantom Antenna's patented technology is beneficial when high performance is desired and extreme ruggedness and low profile is required. The antenna's revolutionary design features field diversity with both vertical and horizontal polarization components. This gives the antenna diversity, frequency agility, low visibility, wide bandwidth and a low angle radiation pattern that is superior to traditional gain antennas in most applications.
