RA Miller "Antenna Specialists"
The AV-1 is a base station antenna for communications with
ground vehicles or aircraft. It has heavy-duty construction with 3/8" diameter
aluminum radials, a 1"diameter aluminum tube radiator, and is iridite-treated
for durability. It mounts easily to a 1î diameter pipe or a 1-1/4" O.D. tube with locking
set screws. A built-in gap-type lighting arrestor is an important design feature. The
antenna requires no additional tuning and is designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 100

AV-5 on left, AV-1 on right
An economical Ground Plane base station antenna the
AV-5 is ideally suited for use with Unicom transceivers and is field tunable for the
frequency band desired. Also due to the more compact design and included ground plane the AV-5
is a great choice for use on Fiberglass top Motorhomes when no natural metal grounding is
available. The redial arm angle is designed to give optimum VSWR at the tuned
frequency. Durably constructed of high quality materials for a long operational life, the
antenna is designed to withstand wind-speeds of up to 100 mph.
Application: Communications : 118-136 MHz

USES & AIRCRAFT COMPATIBILITY
Ground Plane . . .
These antennas are designed to
operate with the modern radios that are installed in today's composite
airframes. Just bond them in and connect the coax cable, don't use a ground
plane. Seal them into the structure, they last the life of the airframe.
One antenna model works for communication, navigation, and for ELT (Three
antennas in the aircraft, but all the same design), and this design is
tolerant to installation errors. They will work in metal airframes when a
plastic or fiberglass wing tip or similar plastic component has been
available to provide the mounting structure. This antenna is ideal for
restorations of antique and classic aircraft when you don't want an exposed
whip antenna. For navigation the antenna should be mounted near horizontal,
and for communications and ELT use should be at or near vertical up to a
maximum recommended angle of 45 degrees from the ideal.
Antenna is 45" OAL x 1" wide + connections.

Transponder blade antennas
Let me first say I do not like or
recommend these composite antennas on sailplanes!
Many sailplane pilots are convinced that these
streamlined antennas are going to create less drag than the simple post
antenna....they might be right! but this drag difference is so small that it
is impossible to measure the drag difference on the aircraft itself. The big
issue with the composite antenna is that they are fragile! easily broken
with just a light impact and they are expensive and difficult to install and
more so, to replace!
BUT WE DO OFFER THESE JUST THE SAME
