This package includes one "The RTO" antenna OR one 700-900MHz Shorty and one Small Walled Motorola Adapter.
(IF YOU ARE USING A MOTOROLA RADIO, WE RECOMMEND USING A MOTORLA RELOCATION CABLE KIT OVER A WEARABLE ANTENNA)
The package does not include the TNC adapter (PRC-152/MBITR) that is normally included when you buy "The RTO", so if you plan on swapping your antenna between a military radio and your SMA-M ported radio, purchase 'The RTO" and a Small Walled adapter separate.
The SMA female to BNC female adapter included has a "protective wall" that is 0.51 inches in width. If you are unsure this adapter will screw in all the way, measure the width of you radios antenna port.
*Each adapter includes one 3/8"O.D.x1/4"I.D.x1/16" rubber O-ring to prevent the adapter from walking out of the antenna port*
(FYI- The Baofeng adapter's "protective wall" width is 0.57 inches in width)
Unlike other wearable antenna options, this antenna package has a multi-layered protective shell comprised of adhesive, metal locking ring, glue lined heat-shrink, bend boot and a final layer of heat-shrink for bump protection.
Antenna Frequency and SWR info (RTO):
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.
Flat-line SWR across the 600-900MHz spectrum except at 490-590MHz (SWR peak in the 2-3 SWR) and 610-670MHz (small SWR peak in the 1.9 SWR)
