The VMB-3512 is a multi-band vehicular whip antenna system designed to provide vhf and uhf communications for a range of military applications, such as the JTRS program. It is designed for use with today's cutting edge, wide-band, frequency agile radios operating within its 30-512 mhz band and can be used to replace a multiple antenna setup. The VMB-3512 boasts a power handling capability of 100 watts and less than 3.5:1 vswr across the entire operating band.
The VMB-3512 whip comes in two pieces which easily thread together to create a dipole-style antenna system with integral matching networks, all housed within fibreglass envelopes. The whip threads onto the base support spring which has an aluminum flange for mounting to a standard vehicular mount.
Emp (electro-magnetic pulse) and high voltage isolation are also incorporated into the VMB-3512. The upper whip section provides high voltage isolation to 20kvrms providing safety to personnel and equipment in the case of an accidental strike of the antenna to an overhead power line. An eye protection device at the tip of the antenna provides further safety to the user..
