CAATail Antennas are handcrafted (USA), flexible antennas that are worn on the user's plate carrier or ruck. The antenna was designed and field tested around VHF/UHF squad internal communications.
"The Squad Leader" is tipped with a TNC connector, increasing its durability over "The RTO's" BNC connector. "The Squad Leader" is more robust but lacks in the modularity and QD a BNC connector provides.
The v2 model offers increased UHF performance and a triple abraded PET sleeve for extra cable protection.
Unlike other wearable antenna options, "The Squadleader" has a multi-layered protective shell comprised of adhesive, metal locking ring, glue lined heat-shrink, and a bend boot.
When configuring the antenna, route the cable either over your shoulder or along your cummerbund and make a "U" shape on the back of your plate carrier. Ensure that the antenna is placed over your hydration source.
