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 2.0-to-1 VSWR), and the unit includes a 20-foot low-loss RG-8/X 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.
