This antenna provides an omnidirectional, Horizontally polarized signal that is ideal for mobile and base operations.
Physically, the HO LOOP Antennas are square, fabricated from two 3/8 in. diameter aluminum tubes to minimize losses. Their sealed feed block provides weather protection with minimum wind drag. The heart of this unique design is the shorted stub matching to a 50 ohm coaxial feedline. They are lightweight and have very low wind area, which makes them ideal for stacking in base or mobile operations. Mounting is via a single 3/8 in. hole that is standard for most mobile hardware, with optional mounting hardware available for base or mobile installations, as shown. Minimum vehicle mounting height and stacking separation dimensions are displayed in the details for each HO LOOP.
