VECM-2200 Wide Spectrum Multi-Band Antenna
Performs with or without a ground plane
Rugged and reliable design
Easy assembly and disassembly
The VECM-2200 is a wide spectrum vehicular whip antenna system covering frequency bands across the HF and VHF designations. The VECM-2200 is ideally suited for cutting edge wide spectrum electronic countermeasure systems. As well, it can be used for standard HF and VHF communications, replacing a multiple antenna configuration. The VECM-2200 antenna boasts a power handing capability of up to 100 Watts and a nominal 3.5:1 VSWR across the entire operating band of 20MHz to 200MHz.
The VECM-2200 whip comes in two pieces which easily thread together to create a dipole-style antenna system with integral matching networks. The antenna is housed within rugged fibreglass envelopes. The lower whip has an integrated base support spring which threads into an aluminum mounting flange attached to the vehicle using a standard vehicular mount.
The upper whip section provides high voltage isolation to 10KV providing safety to personnel and equipment in the case of an accidental strike of the antenna to an overhead power line.
