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 MURS Band: Each
antenna is tuned to the VHF MURS Band from 151 to 154 MHz. This
antenna can be used with the new MURS band based intercom
and security devices, such as the Dakota Alert. It can also
be used with MURS based dog tracking devices, such as the Garmin
Astro or Tracker
Maxima. Note: The outdoor antenna model is recommend for
best performance. Warning: There have been
some reports that tracking devices such as the Garmin
Astro have been damaged while using external antennas,
due to transmissions being made by another radio, or static shock. Use
Ready Made: There's no
assembly necessary and 18 feet of coax (with Male BNC or Male SMA 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.
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
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
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.
Made in the USA
Thank you for an excellent product and service. I recently
purchased the MURS Blade antenna... It has increased my receive
and transmit noticeably.
