- Additional information
The ZARA® 27S Base Loaded Whip assembly is ready to replace a whip used on the ZARA® Antenna Swivel Base for the ZARA 27S Mobile Antenna.
The antenna has a slimline molded coil and is pre-tuned at the factory to cover a single frequency of 27 MHz. No further tuning is necessary.
This antenna can be mounted upright regardless of the mounting angle of the base. The antenna comes with an RG-58 coaxial cable with a standard length of 4 m. Other sizes are available upon request. Order a coax connector separately since it is not supplied with the antenna.
It has the following specifications: VSWR of < 1.5:1 across a bandwidth of 500 kHz with a nominal gain of 0 dBq (relative to a quarter wavelength radiator) and a rated power of 100 W.
The ZARA® 27S Base Loaded Whip can withstand wind velocities with a maximum of 220 km/h. The whip is designed to be flexible and does not break easily. It can be mounted on vehicles and structures.
The whip is made of stainless steel and has a mounting hole size of 19 mm. The antenna can radiate all its power in equal directions perpendicular to its axis.
The antenna’s electric field is vertical, while the magnetic field is horizontal. Replacement parts such as springs, bases, and whips are available upon request. When the antenna is mounted on a vehicle, it is recommended to remove it before using equipment such as automatic car wash equipment to avoid damage to the antenna.
