Product Description

An emergency antenna that can be rapidly deployed via a CO2 cartridge or manual tube, and inflates to 5 ft (1.6m), offering a full 3dB antenna with a range up to three times greater than any existing helical emergency VHF antenna

Thanks to its inflatable design, the antenna can be deflated and safely stowed away in the included easy to spot storage bag until it's needed again. The VHF antenna can be mounted with its hook and loop straps, enabling quick and easy installation in any weather to stanchions, outriggers or other vertical structures on board. In addition, grommets are included on the top and bottom to facilitate hanging and securing to spreaders, masts, hard tops and other structures, even in case the inflatable bladder becomes damaged.

The included pre-soldered PL259 connector allows connection to a fixed VHF directly or a handheld via the included SMA adaptor. Also included is a solder-free female UHF connector that allows the antenna to be spliced into existing coax cables on the boat.

Please Note:
Not for use as a personal flotation device.
Not for use as a visual distress signal.
Not suitable for submersible/ man overboard applications.
