The Valcom Model VDS-110 is a VHF Dipole Whip Antenna. The VDS-110 operates in the 30 to 110 MHz frequency range. The VDS-110 is designed to withstand the rough conditions characteristic to vehicular environments.
It is constructed in three sections; a two piece whip and a base mount insulator. The two whip sections thread together using rolled thread ferrules to form the complete whip. Each section is constructed of resin impregnated fibreglass cloth to create a highly flexible yet extremely durable whip antenna.
The Valcom VDS-110's three sections are directly interchangeable with the AS-5242/U vehicular antenna system's three sections. The base mount insulator is equipped with a rugged spring which is used for absorbing impact on the whip and allowing the whip to be tied down horizontally for storage.
