The AS-5042/URC is a UHF dipole plane antenna for shipboard installations. It consists of two small stubby radiators joined by a support arm that houses the matching components. The AS-5042/URC exhibits a low VSWR of 2:1 or less across its frequency band of 220 to 400 MHz. The antenna radiates an omni-directional, vertically polarized radiation pattern and can easily handle 200 Watts of RF input power.
The AS-5042/URC is a lightweight and rugged antenna designed to withstand the harsh environmental conditions aboard ships. This antenna is ideally suited for mounting off yardarms or other mast-type supports. Mounting is accomplished with a clamp-style bracket with 3/8" hardware. Other mounting options may be available upon request.
