Detailed Description

The AS-3772 B/U 35 foot aluminum whip antenna is designed and built to meet the US Navy requirements for shipboard antennas, specifically MIL-A-29517(EC). It meets or exceeds these requirements in every respect.

The antenna is used for communications in the 2 to 30 MHz frequency range and can be installed and operated in the vertical, tilted or horizontal positions.

The antenna consists of a tapered aluminum radiating element and an integral fibreglass insulator and base mounting flange. It is a two piece antenna which has three side feed points. The integral insulator and base mounting flange is bonded to the bottom of the radiating element. A drip shield is provided just below the lower feed point.

The mechanical strength of the integral insulator and mounting flange is achieved with a patented process using high strength filament fibreglass and epoxy resin.
