Same whip-free, wearable communications as the original "RTO" model but with added durability for PRC-152, MBITR (PRC-148) and PRC-117G users!
"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 a BNC connector provides.
If you only plan on using your wearable antenna for PRC-152, MBITR (PRC-148), PRC-117G or any other TNC ported radio, this is the antenna for you!
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.

Antenna Frequency and SWR info:
This antenna has been designed to work in the 30-512MHz range with an exception of these two SWR peaks: 174-232MHz and 255-333MHz. At the start of the peak there is an SWR of 3 and continues up, ending at an SWR of 3. The frequencies between and around these two high SWR peaks SWR stays in the 1.5-1.9 range. (Tests when gathering this information are done when the antenna is over the users shoulder and in a “U” shape on the back molle panel.) Be advised that results may vary with how the antenna is weaved. Never place the antenna under a hydration source.
