SkyProbes™ Inc. has stated that its 14” long range broad band gain antenna for VHF handhelds can restore lost range due to system changes and other factors. The MK4, with its unique matching network and flexible stainless steel cable plastic covered whip, gives up to 3 times the range over the rubber duck antenna supplied with commercial VHF handheld radios. It has +6dB gain over the typical rubber duck antenna.

BNC connector shown, TNC, SMA and connectors for Bendix-King™ can be supplied.

The SkyProbes™ antennas are widely used by many US agencies such as the Park Rangers, Forest Service, BIA among others plus many EMS and ambulance services, state, police and local fire units. SkyProbes™ antennas are used where reliable long distance communications are an absolute necessity.

SkyProbes™ states that users get an unusual warranty: If you feel that the SkyProbe™ handheld antenna has not increased your communicating range, return it for a full refund within 30 days of purchase.

SkyProbes™ says that antennas can be shipped the same day as ordered.
