244CM Glomex VHF Antenna backed by lifetime warranty

by Martin Flory Group 31 Aug 2019 08:47 UTC

The key to an effective VHF radio system is a quality antenna that delivers maximum transmission and reception range. The RA1225HP 244cm Classic High-Performance VHF Antenna from Glomex Marine Antennas features innovative engineering and robust construction that provide years of trouble-free service. It's backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

With a frequency range of 156/162 MHz, the RA1225HP collinear-phased antenna has a gain average of 6dB, maximum input power of 100W and 50 ohms impedance. Vertically polarized to minimize signal reflection on the water, it's ideal for inland, coastal and offshore vessels.

The internal elements of the Glomex RA1225HP antenna are made of spiral copper wires inserted into brass radiator tubes. This is what provides its astounding range, clarity and power to enhance the radio's overall performance.

Weighing only 742g, the double-thick fiberglass tube has a smooth polyurethane finish with five layers of anti-yellowing paint. The 25mm ferrule on the RA1225HP is cast 316 stainless steel with an integrated feed-thru. It comes with 6m of RG-8X low loss, twin screen coax cable with a pre-wired FME connector and PL-259 adapter for simple connection.

To reduce the cost of mailing an oversized container, some competitors reduced the length of their antennas, necessitating a change to its UPC code; others simply increased the MSRP. In contrast, Glomex introduced an innovative 241cm shipping tube that completely protects the 244cm Glomex RA1225HP Classic High-Performance VHF Antenna and avoids extra fees without any change to its price.
