Versatile VHF Whip Antenna Features Magnetic Mount

When it comes to quick and easy marine antenna installs, few things are simpler than a magnetic mount. The 5218 VHF antenna from Shakespeare Electronic Products Group has a one-piece design that attaches to magnet-friendly surfaces, rapidly facilitating communication.

The 19″, black stainless steel VHF whip antenna mounts firmly with its strong magnetic base, yet stows quickly when not needed. It comes with 15′ of RG-58 AU coax cable and a PL-259 connector to further simplify installation.

Backed by a 2-year warranty, the Shakespeare Style 5218 VHF antenna has a suggested retail price of $83.95. Shakespeare’s online Learning Center helps owners determine the types of antennas and accessories best-suited for their applications. Located at www.shakespeare-antennas.com/media, it features videos, sound bites and other media files on a variety of topics.
