    Very broadband - Receives 118MHz to 136MHz, and for transmit covers almost 5MHz 121.5MHz to 126MHz.


    No need to tune - no SWR meter needed - State prefered center frequency when ordering.

    Also available center tuned for any other part on the airband e.g. 127MHz
    , 132MHz


                  airkit           Price = $150.00
    Note: When mounting this antenna on a king post, It should be 300mm away from the post to get the best results.

    The following Airband Antennas have a 5/16" 26tpi base fitting

    As these antennas are all 1/4 wave for the Airband band they need to be mounted so that the
    bottom of the antenna is as close to the surface of the metal ground plane as possible
    the very best way is to use a Mobile One UHF base on a BMB mount if on a vehicle

    M124-3  m124-3choice
    Length
    1670mm


    Gain
    3dBi

    The M124-3 is a fiberglass 5/8 wave antenna suitable for vehicle and base applications on a 5/16" fitting,

    The M124-3 works best when mounted onto a bracket that is as close to the surface of the ground plane as possible
    such as the BMS mount (Z brackets are not recommended with this antenna)

    Recommended Accessories -
    UL4C with BMB or MAG4BNC or equivalent.

    Note: You Should NOT use a spring with this antenna.
    Note: A M124-3 on a MAG4BNC put upside down on the guttering of the house is an simple solution as a base station antenna.
    Note:
    Also ideal for scanners that are mainly used for Air Band reception.

    Air Band Base Antenna

           CDB124  cdb124

     

    Length
    1450mm


    Gain
    3dBi

    The CDB124 is a fiberglass ground independent base antenna that has a 20mm aluminum anodized tube for mast mounting.
    The CDB124 is broadband covering the entire AIR band 118MHz to 136MHz without the need for tuning, however, is centered on 124MHz and has a bandwidth of 6MHz under 1.6:1 SWR it is therefore important that the desired transmit frequency is taken into consideration.


    The CDB124 has a SO239 Connector at its base in order to connect to a standard PL259.

    The CDB124 can be mounted onto any vertical mast using worm drive hose clamps
    (HC2 - Kit of 2 pieces - Stainless Steel or, Muffler "U" Bolt clamps UC2 - Kit of 2 pieces - Plated Steel) and there are other options available!
