The KS-43 Black Edition is the best performing VHF antenna of the Scout range, specifically designed to guarantee long range communication and endless duration for boaters that want more than a good VHF antenna. Collinear-phased, made with solid brass and copper elements and extra heavy duty fiberglass 1,5 mm thick.
