Time is of the essence in an emergency, so quickly finding and mounting a spare VHF antenna can make all the difference. The 5910 Emergency Stowable Antenna from Shakespeare Electronic Products Group is easy to spot, grab, and connect, helping save valuable minutes.
A 9″ bright yellow, metal tube helps protect the antenna during storage and becomes part of the mounting system. It hangs neatly on a bulkhead, or wherever it’s accessible yet out of the way. Pre-installing the included mounting clip helps prepare the antenna for use. In an emergency, the user simply removes the cable and flexible whip from the tube, mounts the antenna securely on top, and then slides the tube onto the mounting clip. After assembly, the antenna is 16″ long.
The dependable VHF whip comes with 20′ of RG-174 mini coax cable and a pre-installed PL-259 connector. The Shakespeare 5910 Emergency Stowable Antenna, backed by a 2-year warranty, retails for $95.95.
