8' VHF/AIS Wide Band Land/Marine Antenna
Model # 992-MW, 992-MB
Utilizing technology designed for military and commercial applications, Digital Antenna delivers our new, highly advanced 8' Wide Band VHF Antennas to the marine industry. These antennas provide tactical maritime users with a high performance solution for broadband VHF communications.
Featuring a tremendous bandwidth of 134 to 176 MHz, a nominal 6dB gain and the ability to withstand continuous RF power up to 150 watts, the new antennas facilitate high quality communications across a normally hard to cover band. An exclusive patent pending electrical design with internal ground plane allows the antenna to maintain a low radiation pattern, resulting in exceptional communication capability over a wide bandwidth.
Designed to meet the military’s rigorous MIL-STD-810 environmental engineering testing, as well as typical marine standards for high seas applications, the 992-MW and 992-MB antennas are built to endure environmentally harsh conditions. They are designed for use with a multitude of services including auxiliary civil services, 2-meter amateur radio band, VHF business band, multi-use radio service (MURS), 2-way land mobile, VHF marine radio, narrow band FM, VHF SATCOM, Automatic Identification System (AIS) and NOAA weather stations.
Digital Antenna’s quality components include a rugged hard coated anodized finish over an aircraft grade aluminum ferrule, soldered brass radiating elements, power directing ferrite choke bead and high-gloss UV stable coating. Manufactured in the USA by skilled craftsmen, our antennas are hand tested and tuned to assure the highest possible performance, quality and durability. Lifetime limited warranty.
