AD-18/CF-3512 is a wideband VHF/UHF dipole antenna with frequency range of 30-512 MHz at up to 125 W CW for use in heavy duty vehicular applications.
AD-18/CF-3512 is a "center-fed" type wideband mobile VHF/UHF dipole antenna for frequency range from 30 to 512 MHz, mainly intended for use in heavy duty mobile applications.
The antenna is composed of three main parts: antenna base, lower and upper radiating element.
Both radiating elements are made of composite materials enable outstanding strength and roughness even in hardest conditions of use. The antenna radiator is painted with military green (RAL-6014) two-component UV resistant paint. Other colors are available on request.
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.
