    UGS AntennaSingle antenna integrated with an unattended ground sensor (UGS) providing superior omnidirectional long-range performance. Operates over high HF throughVHF. Innovative raised phase center design minimizes ground losses, while improvingradiation pattern and launch angle. Easily deployed in a compact, lightweight packagemeasuring 2.5 inches in diameter and 3 feet in height.

    RFsabreWith outstanding lower frequency gain and less than 3:1 VSWR over a very wide frequency range, the RFsabre antenna delivers great performance in a distinctly compactform factor. The vehicle-mounted version can survive impacts with solid objects at speedsup to 25 MPH. Geared for security, communications, signal gathering, and high powertransmit applications. New hanging or tripod mounted versions available.
