AD-44/CW: wideband VHF tape antenna for handheld radios

The VHF manpack / handheld antennas AD-44/CW represent a family of wideband monopole whips, primarily intended for use with portable and handheld radios in VHF frequency range from 30 to 90 (108) MHz. 

Electrically the antenna is optimised for all exploitation conditions (radio in hand, at the side, at the breast etc.) so it is not necessary for additional tuning. The antenna is composed of radiating part made of special steel multilayer tape material covered with a plastic sleeve ensuring high flexibility and roughness. 

The antenna has built-in a special passive transformer tuning network enclosed in fibreglass housing above the input coaxial connector. Above the transformer unit could be added so called “goose neck” enables that the antenna is always in vertical position regardless of the position of the radio station. Input connector is TNC male (or modified TNC male), Other types  (N or BNC male) are available on special request. The AD-44/CW series are also military jamming antennas.
