The Shakespeare 5215 SQUATTY BODY® VHF Marine Antenna:
A favorite with Sailboat owners, this lightweight, low profile, stainless steel antenna is specially designed for masthead mounting. Shakespeare offers the low-profile 5215-AIS Squatty Body. Sailboat owners will love this version of their longtime favorite, the 5215. Its the same light weight, low-profile, stainless steel antenna, specially designed for masthead mounting and built with extra bandwidth for all popular AIS transceivers.
AIS transceivers can be a lifesaver when it comes to monitoring busy shipping lanes, but adding another antenna to a crowded electronics array can be challenging. Shakespeare's AIS antenna reliably handles broader AIS bandwidth requirements in a low-profile design that's easy to mount.
Compact, durable and lightweight, the AIS Antenna is a 3 foot (91 cm) stainless steel whip antenna. Its tin-plated, copper wire coil is housed in a sealed, chrome-plated brass canister that minimizes troublesome de-tuning associated with plastic canisters.
