Antenna Research Associates (ARA) – Handheld SATCOM Antenna
The ARA-243 is the smallest, sturdiest, and most lightweight, foldable Yagi antenna available for UHF SATCOM Operations. The antenna and all mounts are durable enough to be used in a harsh field environment and can be deployed by an operator several thousand times. The dull black anodized finish protects the antenna from the effects of weathering and does not produce a glare. The ARA-243 collapses into a small space making it the ideal size to fit into a briefcase, BDU pocket or attached to a rucksack in molle bag. A Pelican 1400 Waterproof Case is included with this kit. Additionally, an optional GorillaPod mini tripod is available with flexible joints and rubberized grips, enabling mounting to various surfaces.
The ARA-243-B is a kit that features four quick disconnect options for deployment in different operations.
- Folding pistol grip for easy deployment and stowing
- Sturdy tripod
- Magnet mount with built-in spike
- Quick Reference Guide
- Soft Case for lightweight on-the-move storage
- Gorillapod for versatile mounting (optional)
- Stackable extenders for additional +2 dBic of gain each (optional)
