AD-18/CF-3108 is an omni-directional, center-fed, vertically polarized dipole antenna for mobile military band communications needing moderate power handling.
The AD-18/CF-3108 antenna covers 30-108 MHz with 100 W CW power handling and is composed of three main parts: antenna base, lower and upper radiating element. Each radiating section is made of composite materials for outstanding strength and roughness.
The base is made of aluminum and durable plastic materials, with matching circuitry inside and (optional) AD-79/18D GPS antenna. A stainless steel spring absorbs shocks and vibrations, while protecting the antenna against impacts. Four mounting holes are equally spaced on a 4.5" (114.3 mm) circle, complying with the USA and NATO standard.
Compatible accessories for other-than-vehicle-mounting the AD-18/CF-3108 are:
