The ARA-243 is the smallest, sturdiest, and most lightweight, foldable yagi antenna available for UHF SATCOM Operations. The ARA-243W is a kit that features four quick disconnect options for deployment in different operations and a whip antenna for 30 to 512 MHz operation.
• A folding pistol grip for easy deployment and stowing
• A sturdy tripod
• A magnet mount / A spike mount
• A flexible whip antenna
• An adapter to mount the whip to the tripod
The antenna and all mounts are durable enough to be used in a harsh field environment and can be deployed by an operator several thousand times. The dull black anodized finish protects the antenna from the effects of weathering and does not produce a glare. The ARA-243W collapses into a small space making it the ideal size to fit into a briefcase or attached to a rucksack. A smartly designed MOLLE compliant bag is included with each antenna.
