The DPV-82 is a vertically polarized omnidirectional dipole antenna specifically designed for vehicular use. The antenna has an instantaneous band of 116-174 Mhz. The antenna is used for point-to-point or ground-to-air communication circuits.
The antenna is a single half-wave dipole antenna. It features an integral spring base to dampen road shock and vibration. The dipole is housed within a filament wound fiberglass radome and mounts by means of a flange base with clearance holes for four bolts on a 4.5 inch diameter bolt circle.
