    259809 Vesper Marine Vesper AIS / VHF Whip Antenna VA159

    Features:

    • Vesper has created an antenna that solves the dilemma of having to choose an AIS-tuned antenna that is optimized for the AIS frequencies (but has lower performance for your VHF radio) or choosing an antenna that is designed for VHF radio communications but isn't optimal for AIS
    • The Vesper VA159 AIS antenna is designed to be shared with VHF radios
    • This antenna is specially designed by Vesper Marine to be used with their SP160 Antenna Splitter (Sold Separately)
    • It has (2) key features that combine to make it ideal for use with our antenna splitter:
      • Wide bandwidth of over 6 MHz means it will cover 3 MHz above and below the center point
      • 159 MHz center frequency gives excellent performance for VHF radio (156 Mhz) and AIS (162 MHz)
    • The result is an antenna with superior performance over other designs
    • It has less than 1.3:1 VSWR at 156 MHz all the way up to 162 MHz.
    • With other VHF or AIS antennas you'll only get low VSWR at one end of the frequency band but not both
    • Vesper put all of this into the same physical package as their most popular antenna
    • It's perfect for installations where the lowest possible windage is a requirement
    • A detachable cable makes installation and maintenance easier and allows for any length cable to be used
    • It easily mounts on a mast but is also suitable for mounting most anywhere with its included L-bracket
    • Example mounting locations from our customers are alongside solar panels, bimini sides, on an arch, above a radar, or along the edge of a cabin top
    • The L-bracket can be removed allowing for even greater mounting flexibility
    • A Specially designed 1.0 meter stainless steel antenna
    • Easily replaceable stainless steel whip if it gets lost or damaged
