Our 1/2 Wave aerial range covers UHF and VHF frequencies, includes wideband aerials and Marine frequency aerials.
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.
MINI 1/2 WAVE VHF & UHF AERIALS
The Mini 1/2 Wave Aerials feature a very small profile making them ideally suited for mounting on modern vehicles.
Like the heavy duty models, the Mini 1/2 Wave is an end fed configuration which eliminates the need for a ground plane, so the aerial can be mounted in any position on a vehicle. It is also ideally suited for mounting on non-metallic surfaces.
1/2 WAVE HEAVY DUTY VHF AERIALS
Our Heavy Duty model 1/2 wave aerial is available in a range of frequencies for VHF and also available for customer designated frequencies.
The end fed voltage feed configuration eliminates the need for a ground plane, so the aerial may be mounted in any position on a vehicle. This gives improved performance compared with other aerials ineffectively located on vehicles. The impedance matching circuit is mounted inside the rugged nylon base which provides a very strong, reliable and efficient unit. The aerial base is easily mounted by its 12mm stud or onto our range of stainless steel brackets.
This range is ideally suited for mounting on non metallic surfaces, or for base station use, as it readily mounts to buildings or fascia mounts with a stainless steel bracket. As standard a 3 metre coaxial cable tail is provided with the aerial and this can be readily replaced in service. The radiator element is our standard stainless steel whip (W12 or W09). To achieve the required element length on A and FM bands an extender is fitted.
MARINE BAND VHF 1/2 WAVE AERIALS
For VHF marine installations there are two models available.
The popular half wave marine whip (M1/2) features a rugged moulded white nylon base fitted with a 890mm stainless steel whip. This aerial mounts through a 12mm hole or can be fitted to our Stainless Steel Bracket (BRRA1/2). A longer mounting stud (40mm) is available on request.
The second model (MFGTLT) is also a half wave configuration, however it is fitted inside a tapered fibreglass radome. Mounting is by a fully adjustable plastic marine tilt base.
Both models have unity gain with an omnidirectional radiation pattern. As standard they are fitted with 5 metres of white coaxial cable.
