The A43 whip antenna (RA15-0851-03) is a wideband, highly flexible manpack whip antenna with spring designed for the VHF communication purposes.
The antenna’s electrical design allows it to function even when bent out of shape, and guarantees that the VSWR will remain controlled under all conditions to ensure correct operation of the transmitter.
The A43 whip antenna has an omni-directional azimuth pattern with minimal ripple, and the elevation pattern shows no pattern break-up. The antenna is rated for 5 W continuous duty power handling.
