Mini 1/2 Wave Wideband Aerials

The Mini 1/2 Wave Wideband Aerial is an extremely versatile ground independent antenna, covering the majority of the VHF or UHF band. With an industry standard PL259 base they can easily be field terminated, making them ideal for mobile vehicle installations and customers using channels across multiple bands.

Available in either nickel plated black or silver with a stainless steel tapered whip.

The overall height of the aerial base is 80mm with a maximum diameter of only 19mm and is constructed from nickel plated brass with a black fibreglass centre sec- tion to house the impedance matching circuit.

The aerial is simply mounted by screwing it onto our SOB Base (SO239 right angle RG58 base). The SOB Base has a thread diameter of 16mm and is easily mounted onto a stainless steel bracket (e.g. BRRA1/2-SOB).

The aerials come packaged in four different configurations:

  • Aerial with PL259 Connector
  • Aerial with PL259 Connector and SOB Base
  • Aerial with PL259 Connector and SOB Base pre-terminated with 3m of RG58 Coaxial Cable
  • Aerial with PL259 Connector and SOB Base pre-terminated with 5m of RG58 Coaxial Cable

To select the correct antenna model code, use the following table to replace XYZ.

Eg. M1/2WB-V3BK is an M1/2WB in VHF with a SOB Base pre-terminated with 3m of RG58 coaxial cable in Black.
