    For the toughest of the tough jobs, Shakespeare introduces the extra edge of silver plated elements on world-renowned, world class, Galaxy® marine VHF antennas. The 5225-XP is a maximum range antenna built in a Shakespeare extra tough fiberglass radome. It's designed to withstand the wind forces and high speeds when used on hard tops, T-tops, and radar arches. The silver plating adds extended performance for extra reliable communications. The antenna's legendary Galaxy high-gloss finish assures that it's welcome aboard.

    • Copper and silver plated brass elements for extraordinary range and efficiency
    • Low-loss polyethylene dielectric
    • Low-loss ethafoam spacer for strong mechanical support.
    • Stranded, high-quality tinned copper inner conductor maximizes signal strength.
    • Ultra efficient, silver-plated brass choking sleeve suppresses cable radiation for maximum on-air signal.
    • Flexible low-loss coax has higher power capabilities, less loss per foot, UV stable jacketing, stranded copper core, and a higher concentration of copper shielding to help maximize antenna performance.
    • Stainless steel ferrule with standard 1"-14 thread
    • 6m (20ft) RG-8/X low-loss cable plus a PL-259 connector

    Best applications include: T-tops and hard-tops, radar arches
