All Mobile One Antennas

Antennas Ranging From 160MHz to 180MHz

Designed and Manufactured in Australia since 1973.
The following antennas are sorted by the frequency that they are designed for!
Example : 160MHz to 180MHz means that particular antenna can be made anywhere within that range
but not that the antenna will transmit over that entire range as this is impossible for a transmitting antenna.

BNCVAR+freqbncvar
Length Description of the BNCVAR+freq Price
210mm
8"

A 1/4 wave helical antenna with BNC connector, covered entirely with polyolefin rubber heatshrink. The BNCVAR has a specially made 1/4λ phosphor bronze helical coil tuned to produce a low SWR and an exceptionally broadband antenna

The BNCVAR can be supplied tuned to any frequency from 160 to 180MHz simply ask or you can order on line with the code "BNCVAR" followed with the frequency required e.g.: BNCVAR163 for 163MHz

 

Note: This antenna can be supplied as a TNC or N connector or any colour

Note: Also ideal for scanners that are mainly used on High band VHF.

SMAVAR+freq

Length Description of the SMAVAR+freq Price
210mm
8"

The SMAVAR+freq is designed for transceivers where the SMA antenna connector is extended from the case of the transceiver.

The SMAVAR can be supplied tuned to any frequency from 160MHz to 180MHz simply ask or you can order on line with the code "BNCVAR" followed with the frequency required e.g.: SMAVAR163 for 163MHz.

A 1/4 wave helical antenna with SMA connector designed especially for exposed SMA connectors on hand held radios and covered entirely with polyolefin rubber heatshrink. The SMAVAR has a specially made 1/4λ phosphor bronze helical coil tuned to produce an exceptionally broadband antenna.

 

Note: Also ideal for scanners that are mainly used for 2m band.

 

NOTE: This antenna may not fit neatly onto your transceiver


Note: The SMAVAR has a diameter of 12mm at its base and may not fit some radios that have the SMA connector recessed into the radio, if this is the case then the SMAIVAR is the better choice.

RDRMVAR+freq

For 160MHz to 180MHz State frequency e.g. "RDRMVAR163" for 163MHz

The RDRMVAR is the shortest antenna that can be made to suit frequencies from 160MHz to 180MHz
it has a bandwidth of up to 4MHz with a SWR <1.5:1 when mounted onto a suitable ground plane area, this represents 2MHz on either side of the desired transmit frequency, the receive frequency is not important.
The RDRMVAR is made with weather resistant materials and covered with polyolofin rubber.

The RDRMVAR can be supplied tuned to any frequency from 160 to 180MHz simply ask or you can order on line with the code "RDRMVAR" followed with the frequency required eg: RDRM168 for 168MHz


Pros - Short antenna - suitable for all mounting positions on vehicles
Cons - Performance reduced due to it being a very short antenna


Recommended Accessories - UL12C with BMB or Mag12C , Z Bracket is not recommended

Note: You can use a spring SAL or SAO but the antenna will need to be re-tuned on the spring
