Prevent antenna damage while enabling quick employment and storage.
The ability of a radio system to communicate is dependent on the condition of the attached antenna and it’s employment. Standard whip antennas for voice FM frequencies are too long to run extended. This causes operators to Velcro, zip-tie, or tape their antennas down to their kit. This causes a couple of problems, including permanent damage to the antenna itself.
In the past, “semi-permanent” antenna stowage has been an acceptable solution to some, if not most, operators. But, to be properly employed a whip antenna must be fully extended to produce the ideal wave propagation. Most chose to stow the antenna and minimize communication effectiveness over dealing with a long whip.
The Antenna Saver improves the lifespan of the antenna by eliminating continual folding. It has been designed to roll the antenna in and out of the stowed position without folding or creasing the blade. This movement not only prevents damage to the antenna, also makes it more manageable.
Easy, One-handed Operation
