Originally developed for Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JTRS), these antennas span 700 to 2600 MHz, handle up to 50 W of input power and are applicable to many commercial VHF, L and S band systems.

For example, the 1001-149 spans 1,250 to 1,850 MHz and provides 2.1 dBi of gain. Part number 1001-154 is similar but with a spring base versus gooseneck. And part number 1001-152 offers an integrated, sealed and waterproof RF gooseneck assembly with an internal GPS notch filter to help eliminate out-of-band transmitter noise.
