The VLP30-108 is a rugged, reduced height, broadband, vehicular whip antenna system designed to provide VHF communications for a range of turreted military vehicles.
The VLP30-108 can be used with any frequency agile radio that operates within its 30-108 MHz band, such as the TCCCS/IRIS equipment. It is ideal fo ruse on turreted vehicles where a taller whip, such as the AS-3900A/VRC , is undesirable.
The complete antenna system is made up of a single whip antenna and an impedance matching unit base allowing a continuous transmitting power level of 100 Watts with a maximum VSWR of 3.5:1 over the frequency band.
The VLP30-108 matching unit features EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) protection. High voltage isolation up to 14kVRMS is built into the whip and offers safety to both personnel and equipment in the case of accidental contact with overhead powerlines
