External Mount Antenna

The External Mount Antenna (P/N 900722- 0001) is a unity gain base matched half-wave antenna, available as 3dB, 5dB, and unity gain. Antennas are constructed of heavy-duty fiberglass radome with thick wall aluminum mounting bases. Antennas may be mounted on poles, roofs, walls, etc. with proper field-supplied mounting hardware. The effective “J” pole design requires no radials or ground plane.

External mount antennas are also available in 3dB and 5dB; 5dB is the recommended head-end connection to radio. Antenna is factory tuned to frequency (specify when ordering).
