 Model MC6-160 156 - 162 MHz. 6 dBi. Gain 


Design Features : MC6-160 marine band fiberglass omni-directional collinear antenna is rugged all weather model uses high class brass and aluminum alloy and does not require any field tuning or adjustments. All junctions are fully welded to prevent RF inter-modulation and antenna is completely protected within a high-tech ruggedized radome to ensure survivability in the worst environments. The compact size of marine band fiber glass collinear antenna allows easy handling and shipping.

Constructions: The MC6-160 marine band collinear antenna is a center fed design which eliminates the distortion of the radiation pattern and ensures a true omni-directional horizontal pattern. The special stub matching is used for smooth VSWR and constant gain over the specified frequency band. The collinear antenna consist of large diameter brass radiating elements stacked vertically, fed in phase and enclosed in fiberglass tube. The antenna termination is enclosed at bottom of the antenna for complete weather protection. The stainless steel mounting hardware is supplied with the antenna.
