High Performance Antenna

High Performance Antenna Nov 21, 2019

One of the easiest things to damage over the winter storage season is the boat antenna.  Even under the most punishing of weather conditions, Shakespeare® Phase III™ marine antennas deliver serious performance, outpacing the competition. Backed by an industry-leading eight-year warranty, the Phase III line of professional-grade VHF, AIS, HF/SSB and AM/FM models are ideal for commercial vessels and offshore sportfish, as well as coastal and blue-water yachts.

Rivaling the look and quality of the industry’s finest stainless steel fishing and deck accessories, Phase III ferrules install easily with standard 1” 14 thread mounts or U-bolts. Shakespeare’s SO-239 connector eliminates coax rerouting and enables quick removal for storage or passing under low structures. The Phase III 12-sided faceting prevents shaft rotation and potential cable shearing.

Shakespeare’s high-strength fiberglass radomes are unsurpassed in the industry. Phase III antennas have silver-plated elements for maximum electrical efficiency. Stranded tinned copper inner conductors deliver peak signal strength and an Ethafoam spacer system isolates the radiators from vibration and moisture for a long, reliable service life.

Three VHF antennas are offered in 4’, 8’ and 18’ lengths with 3dB, 6dB and 8dB gain, respectively. The 4’ AIS model has a 3dB gain and the 18’ HF/SSB handles 1kW output power. Two AM/FM units are available in 4’ and 8’ lengths. Prices for Shakespeare Phase III antennas start at $269.95.
