AV-1 base station antenna


Base Station | VHF

The AV-1 is a base station antenna for VHF communications with ground vehicles or aircraft. It has heavy-duty construction with 3/8″ diameter aluminum radials and a 1″ diameter aluminum tube radiator. These elements are treated with a “hexavalent free” passivation process per MIL-81706 and MIL-5541 for superior durability. It mounts easily to a 1″ diameter pipe or a 1-1/4″ O.D. tube with locking set screws. A built-in gap-type lighting arrestor is an important design feature. The antenna operates at a frequency of 118 – 137 MHz, and requires no additional tuning. It is designed to withstand wind speeds of up 100 mph.
