    Shakespeare has added the extended performance of silver plated elements to this outstanding, 1.2m (4ft) workhorse antenna. At home on T-tops and hard-tops, its small size is welcome aloft, where it can deliver maximum range. The extended performance silver plating gives it that extra edge for general purpose communications.

    • 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
