Silver-plated Elements Extend Antenna Performance
Longer service life, a stronger "on-air" signal, and greater range than ordinary VHF antennas
For extra reliability in the toughest applications, boat owners can turn to Shakespeare Electronic Products Group. The company’s world-renowned Galaxy® 5225-XP and 5400-XP Extended Performance VHF Antennas feature internal element assemblies that are constructed of silver-plated brass. This delivers longer service life, a stronger "on-air" signal, and greater range than ordinary VHF antennas. They also incorporate Shakespeare"s "Low Angle Radiation" pattern that helps reduce signal fading in rolling seas.
Both the 2.4m, 6dB gain 5225-XP and 1.2m, 3dB gain 5400-XP have an extra-tough fibreglass radome that seals out moisture and easily withstands extreme sea conditions. An exclusive Shakespeare polyurethane coating provides a glamourous, yet durable, super-smooth finish that won’t turn yellow in the sun.
Both models have a 150 watts input power rating. They come with 1-inch x 14 TPI thread stainless steel ferrules and 6m of flexible, UV stable, low-loss RG-8/X coaxial cable and a PL-259 connector.
Backed by Shakespeare’s 5-year no-hassle warranty, these antennas are ideal for powerboat, superyacht and workboat installations. As part of a continued commitment to best serve European customers, Shakespeare now stock these antennas at their European Office in Fleetwood, UK.
