Product Overview

Shakespeare's Mariner 8300 8' 6dB VHF Antenna gives you excellent performance at an affordable cost.

Copper cable element, a smooth high-gloss finish and a chrome-plated brass ferrule—get top-flight features in an economical package with this smart choice. This is a basic but high-quality antenna with a white fiberglass radome with a polyurethane finish that keeps moisture out and prevents corrosion and yellowing over time. Low-loss ethofoam spacers cradle internal components and keep your signal strong. Quality brass choking sleeves insulate the copper inner conductor and suppress cable radiation. It all adds up to a stronger, clearer, more reliable signal for your communications needs.
