GMRS Vertical Outdoor Base Antenna

SPECS

Gain: 4 dBi SWR: 1.5:1 or Less Pattern: Omni-directional
Wavelength: 1/2 Elements: 1 Tuned: 462-467 MHz
Band: UHF GMRS Connector: N Female Cable: RG8X
Cable Length: 12 Inches Height: 29" Width: 1 1/4"
Weight: 1 lb Wind Area: 0.25 Sq Feet  

FEATURES

Ready Made: There's no assembly necessary, or extra mounting parts needed.

Tuned to GMRS Band: Each antenna is tuned to the GMRS Band from 462 to 467 MHz.

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" mounting mast.

GMRS Double 5/8 Wave Mobile Antenna

SPECS

Gain: 5.5 dBd SWR: 1.5:1 or Less Pattern: Omni-directional
Wavelength: 5/8 over 5/8 Elements: 2 Tuned: GMRS
Band: UHF Connector: Your Choice Cable: RG58A/U
Cable Length: 12 Feet Mount Type: NMO Height: 35"
Magnet Size: 3 1/2"    

FEATURES

Tuned to GMRS Band: Each antenna is tuned for the UHF GMRS band, with match for transmit between 450 and 470 MHz.

Excellent Performance: 5/8 wave over 5/8 wave stacked elements gives 5.5 dBd of gain. This antenna can be used for both transmitting and receiving.

Quality Construction: Black copper clad stainless steel whip. Black matching coil with copper coated brass base. Gold plunger contact pin and O-ring gasket.

Mount Included: All black 3 1/2" NMO Magnet Mount with 12' of RG58A/U cable - Tinned double shield 95% braid, plus aluminum foil shield. Brass NMO with gold contact pin and teflon insulator. (Email to possibly request other connector types.)

GMRS Blade Indoor Antenna

SPECS

Gain: 3 dBi SWR: 1.5:1 or Less Pattern: Omni-directional
Wavelength: 1/2 Elements: 1 Tuned: 462-467 MHz
Band: UHF GMRS Connector: BNC Male Cable: RG8X
Cable Length: 18 Feet Height: 24" Width: 1 1/4"
Depth: 3/8"    

FEATURES

Unique Design: This antenna is designed for anyone who's interested in getting good performance on their scanner or radio, but isn't able to use an outdoor antenna. This is a great antenna for people who live in apartments or condos. The Blade can also be used as a travel antenna, or even outdoors for short periods of time.

Tuned to GMRS Band: Each antenna is tuned to the UHF GMRS Band from 462-467 MHz. Typically this antenna will work with any radio that has a standard type of connector used for the antenna connection. Most of the small consumer grade GMRS radios do not.

Ready Made: There's no assembly necessary and 18 feet of coax (with BNC connector) is included. (Email to possibly request other connector types.)

Easy to Position: The beauty of the way this antenna works, is the fact that you can position it anywhere. Unlike using a rubber duck, you can find the one good spot in the room that gets the best reception, but still put the radio anywhere you like. This can also be helpful if you're trying to move the antenna away from RF producing devices. There's also no ground plane elements sticking out to poke you. The antenna can easily be hung using the two loops on the back.

Unobtrusive: The Blade design is very slim and stealthy. The antenna is only 1 1/4" wide and a mere 3/8" deep. It can easily be hidden behind blinds, but is also attractive enough to be displayed in clear view. The antenna's bright white enclosure blends right into the surroundings.

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.

18' of RG8/X Cable: This cable is better for longer lengths than the average off brand RG58 cable included with most antennas (if any), and helps prevent signal loss.

Direct Feed Point Connection: The coax is directly connected to the antenna elements, which means there's one less connector between your radio and the antenna. Each additional connector can create signal loss.

Dual Band GMRS/MURS Mobile Antenna

SPECS

Gain: 2.4 dBd VHF-5.5 dBd UHF Pattern: Omni-directional Wavelength: 1/2-5/8-5/8
Elements: 2 Tuned: 462-467 & 151-154 MHz Band: UHF/VHF
Connector: Your Choice Cable: RG58 Cable Length: 12 Feet
Mount Type: NMO Height: 38" Magnet Size: 3 1/2"

FEATURES

Tuned to GMRS and MURS Public Bands: Each antenna is tuned to focus on the 462-467 MHz UHF and 151-154 MHz VHF public bands, with match for transmit at approximately the center of those ranges. Other bands can typically still be received.

Excellent Performance: 5/8 wave over 5/8 wave stacked elements gives 5.5 dBd of gain on UHF and a combined 1/2 wave 2.4 dBd gain on VHF.

Quality Construction: Stainless steel whip. Gold plunger contact pin and O-ring gasket on lower coil, with metal top and bottom.

Mount Included: All black 3 1/2" NMO Magnet Mount with 12' of RG58A/U cable - Tinned double shield 95% braid, plus aluminum foil shield. Brass NMO with gold contact pin and teflon insulator. (Email to possibly request other connector types.)

DC Grounded: Note that this model is a DC grounded design. If your device does not utilize the connector chassis side of a cable (braid) in the actual electronics of the device, then it will NOT work.
