This antenna kit attaches to the inside of the windshield and dramatically improves portable nav/coms transmit, receive, and VOR performance based on extensive field testing. It is portable and ideal for those who cant use an ANT-SB. Simply attaches ones own flexible antenna to inside of windshield with BNC, coax, suction cup adapter.
This cable does just what you think it should, it lets you move your antennae away from your handheld. I put my antennae out the door, and it stopped the squealing interference I had when I pushed the PPT on my intercom. Apparently, the ICOM handheld antennae was too close. So, putting it outside made a world of difference. The suction cup is ok, but doesnt work on a fabric plane. I cable tied the antennae to a strut.
Fixed my tx/rx issues by mounting my antenna away from my paramotor frame. Crystal clear communications with local GAs on my Icom A6.
Works as advertised.
Bought this to use with my old ICOM Navicom A22. Works perfect in my Rotorway Exec 162F. Use this as a second radio for getting ATIS or for a backup radio. Allows for clear reception and transmission. Would highly reccommend to anyone looking at this antenna extension.
For what it does, it seems to make a difference. I am still experimenting with placement, but it was easy to install, stays in place, and allows me to better use the radio as a handset, instead of having an antenna in my way.
The entire cable end to end is approximately 73". Yes, it is compatible with the IC-A24 handheld radio. It is designed to work with all models of Icom handheld radios.
This item is for the Icom line of handheld radios. Please see part number 11-10079 for the Yaesu equivalent.
Yes, this is to allow the antenna to have a clear view of the sky. It does not increase the power or range but should result in better reception.
As long as the radio has the standard coax connection for the antenna this will work.
