The range of 5/8 aerials offers a rugged and reliable design. VHF models are constructed from solid 6.5mm pultruded fibreglass rod and covered with LVR heat shrink plastic. All fittings are nickel plated.
To allow tilting of the 5/8 wave VHF aerial, a Tilt Assembly (5/8TLT) is available which is machined from brass and then nickel plated. It is fitted with a stainless steel load spring and components to provide corrosion free service. This assembly mounts onto the Aerial Base (VHFB).
The 5/8 Wave Aerials provide a nominal gain of 3dB with a low angle of radiation.
Two E band models are available, the 5/8E which has no tilt facility and the 5/8ETLT which enables it to be fitted to the Tilt Assembly (5/8TLT).
