VDB-VHF/UHF-N Dual-Band Antenna
Extremely wide bandwidth
Performs with or without a ground plane
Rugged and reliable design
High voltage isolation for safety
The VDB-VHF/UHF-N is a fixed base, dual-band whip antenna
System designed to provide VHF and UHF communications for
A range of military applications. It is designed for use with
Today's cutting edge, wide-band, frequency agile radios
And can be used to replace a multiple antenna setup. The
VDB-VHF/UHF-N boasts a power handling capability of 100
Watts per channel and less than 3.5:1 vswr across the entire Operating band.
The VDB-VHF/UHF-N whip antenna 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 lower whip has an integral base
Support which attaches to the mounting structure via
A standard nato 4-hole pattern.
The antenna system has been designed to meet the Vibration, shock and service requirements of mil-std-167, Mil-s-901 and mil-std-810. Emp (electromagnetic pulse) and High voltage isolation are also incorporated into the VDB-VHF/UHF-N. The upper whip section provides high
Voltage isolation to 20kvrms providing safety to Personnel and equipment in the case of accidental strike of a high voltage source.
