Vesper Marine VA159 AIS/VHF Shared Antenna

An antenna designed for both VHF and AIS!

This antenna is specially designed by Vesper Marine to be used with the SP160 Antenna Splitter. It has two key features that combine to make it ideal for use with this antenna splitter:
  • Wide bandwidth of 6 MHz means it will cover 3 MHz above and below the center point
  • 159 MHz center frequency gives excellent performance for VHF radio (156 Mhz) and AIS (162 MHz)
The result is an antenna with superior performance over other designs. It has less than 1.5:1 VSWR at 156 MHz all the way up to 162 MHz. With other VHF or AIS antennas you'll only get low VSWR at one end of the frequency band but not both. All of this has been put into the same physical package as Vesper Marine's most popular antenna. It's perfect for installations where the lowest possible windage is a requirement. A detachable cable makes installation and maintenance easier and allows for any length cable to be used. It easily mounts on a mast but is also suitable for mounting most anywhere with it's included L-bracket. Example mounting locations from customers are along side solar panels, bimini sides, on an arch, above a radar, or along the edge of a cabin top. The L-bracket can be removed allowing for even greater mounting flexibility.

  • VA159 AIS/VHF Antenna
