A new line of rugged vehicle-mount omni antennas has been released by Southwest Antennas.

The product line offers a range of antennas supporting L, S, and C frequency bands, along with a versatile dual-band option that combines L and S bands.

Each antenna is engineered for robust mounting, compatible with both 6-hole NATO and standard 4-hole USA vehicle mounting brackets. This ensures easy and secure installation on various military platforms, providing flexible and reliable communication solutions for defense operations.

The omni antenna range includes:

  • 1073-003 – L-band antenna (1.35-1.45 GHz) with 5.2 dBi max gain
  • 1073-001 – S-band antenna (2.2 – 2.5 GHz) with 5.6 dBi max gain
  • 1073-002 – C-band antenna (4.4 – 5.0 GHz) with 5.9 dBi max gain
  • 1073-004 – L & S-band antenna (1.35-2.5 GHz) with 2.6 dBi max gain

Engineered for compatibility with most leading tactical radio systems, the vehicle-mount antennas deliver 360-degree azimuth coverage for comprehensive communication capabilities and feature high-quality element designs that ensure optimal peak gain, enhancing signal strength and clarity. Equipped with a Type-N (female) RF connector they are designed to operate without the need for a ground plane, simplifying installation and improving operational flexibility.

Southwest Antennas’ rugged vehicle-mounted omni antennas are specifically engineered for the intense demands of military and law enforcement operations. Boasting an IP67 rating for exceptional ingress protection, they are built to endure harsh environments and challenging conditions.

Featuring heavy-duty spring bases, these antennas are resilient against snags and significant impacts. They have undergone rigorous collision testing at speeds of up to 30 mph, ensuring they maintain peak performance and durability even under extreme circumstances.
