MURS Vertical Outdoor Base Antenna

SPECS

Gain: 3 dBi SWR: 1.5:1 or Less Pattern: Omni-directional
Wavelength: 1/2 Elements: 1 Tuned: 151-154 MHz
Band: VHF MURS Connector: N Female Cable: RG8X
Cable Length: 12 Inches Height: 57" Width: 1 1/4"
Weight: 1 lb 11 oz Wind Area: 0.50 Sq Feet  

FEATURES

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

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. 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 caution.

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.

MURS Blade Indoor Antenna

SPECS

Gain: 3 dBi SWR: 1.5:1 or Less Pattern: Omni-directional
Wavelength: 1/2 Elements: 1 Tuned: 151-154 MHz
Band: VHF MURS Connector: Your Choice Cable: RG8X
Cable Length: 18 Feet Height: 54" 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 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 caution.

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.

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.

MURS 5/8 Wave Mobile Antenna (No Ground Plane)

This antenna is the same as the 5/8 Wave model shown above, but it is designed to be used in situations where no metal ground plane is available. This could be on an RV, Jeep, ATV, or on any vehicle where there is no flat metal area to mount an antenna. This model includes a stainless steel mirror/permanent NMO mount with 17' of RG58 cable. (shown left). It can be mounted to any horizontal tube or bar up to 3/4", but also has four holes in the bracket, which could be used to mount it to the inside bed of a truck or other vertical surface. The only difference between this model and the standard mag-mount model, is that this one has 2.4 dBd. Other than that, it looks and performs the same. (Email to possibly request other connector types.)
