Land Mobile Radio Antenna Solutions VHF, UHF, PTC 220 and Low Band
Itasca, IL, February 16, 2021 – Mobile Mark and Comtelco brand antennas cover the full range of Land Mobile Radio (LMR) frequencies including 24-174, 220-512, 700 and 800 MHz. Our VHF & UHF wideband antennas eliminate inter-operability issues and ensure superior bandwidth coverage without sacrificing signal performance. The no tune wideband design eliminates the need to install multiple antennas to cover various VHF or UHF frequency bands. Our wideband antennas reduce installation costs and ensure superior coverage at all desired frequencies.
These terrestrially based wireless communications systems are used by Emergency Responders, Public Works, Construction, Utilities, and the Military to dispatch vehicle fleets or stay connected to mobile personnel.
We recognize that mounting and coverage expectations change from one setting to another and we offer a wide variety of antenna styles to accommodate these differences. Styles include:
- Omni-Directional: Base Station, Folded Dipole
- Point-To-Point Yagi Infrastructure Antennas
- Low Profile Mobile Antennas
- Mobile Whip Antennas
- Broadband & Multiband Mobile
Land Mobile Radio base station options include both omni-directional and directional antenna solutions. Mobile Mark’s Comtelco brand omni-directional antennas offer three levels of construction: 1”, 1 ½” and 2” diameter radomes, allowing the network designer to choose the level of resilience required for the installation. The Folded Dipole Antennas, which can be configured for either omni-directional or directional use, provide wider bandwidth coverage than other forms of dipole antennas.
For point-to-point wireless connections, Yagi antennas offer rugged and reliable solutions. The Comtelco brand Yagis are made with a construction technique called cold weld, which produces antennas every bit as rugged as a welded Yagi, but at a significant cost advantage. UHF In-Building coverage is becoming a more common requirement so that Public Safety professionals can stay connected when they enter a building.
We understand that Low profile antennas have become increasingly popular among LMR professionals as users move away from whip style antennas on their vehicles. We offer solutions for UHF, VHF and Cellular/FirstNet. Mount options range from standard NMO mount, to tamper proof thru-hole mounting, to mobile mag-mount. The low-profile LPD VHF antenna represents a significant step forward for emergency vehicles who require a low-profile solution but still need a reliable VHF connection.
A wide range of traditional whip-style mobile antennas are also available in the Comtelco brand line. These antennas are configured for a specific frequency range within UHF, VHF, 220 and Low Band. Most of the antennas in this line have a NMO Base; Mag-mount bases are available and are typically configured with 1-foot of cable.
While many LMR users know exactly which frequencies they will use, others appreciate the flexibility of the broadband mobile antennas. Solutions are available for UHF, VHF, Cellular/FirstNet and Wi-Fi allowing them to be easily stocked for a wide range of radios. Multiband Antennas are a convenient solution that combine UHF with Cellular/FirstNet and GNSS coverage within the same housing unit.
Mobile Mark and Comtelco brand antennas cover commercially available wireless networks as well as specialized networks. We can help you tie together the right mix of wireless systems for both vehicles and infrastructure. We provide a quick response for both engineering advice and sales support for Land Mobile Radio (LMR) antenna design. If you need something special, Mobile mark has the facilities and the experience to take a project from initial conception through to final production.
