Shakespeare Galaxy 5225-XT-AIS Antenna

Make the most out of your navigation and communications systems.

Product Information

All antennas are not created equal when it comes to the combined tasks of VHF communications and use with AIS. Shakespeare designed the Galaxy 5225-XT-AIS ­specifically to meet the broader bandwidth requirements of AIS transceivers (bandwidth is 3 MHz within 2-to-1 VSWR), and the unit includes a 20-foot low-loss RG-8X cable (along with a PL-259 ­connector). Elements are brass and copper, gain is 6 dB, finish is a high-gloss ­polyurethane, and the 1-inch ferrule is stainless steel.
