Itasca, IL – March 18th, 2020 — New to the Mobile Mark LMR antenna line is the Low Profile LPD series, which will be one of our antenna solutions for LMR and public safety. This series is specifically designed for transit vehicles that require overhead clearance and a wider bandwidth. This antenna features VHF and operates at 145-161 MHz and 162-172 MHz band, with a gain of 2 dBi.
Other applications this low profile surface mount covers includes but are not limited to two-way land mobile radio (LMR) systems such as ambulances, fire engines, railroad cars, construction equipment, buses and airport vehicles.
The low-profile radome is made from high impact polycarbonate resin to protect against the harshest outdoor environments and is available in either black or white. The LPD series is factory wideband tuned and they are tested to provide excellent frequency coverage.
The antenna is rated at 500 watts and 2 dBi gain with a superior VSWR of <2.0:1. The LPD offers outstanding performance across the VHF frequencies 148-176 MHz and 162 – 172 MHz bands and both have a nominal impedance of 50 Ohm.
This low profile heavy duty antenna measures 20” (50.8 cm) in diameter by 3.25” (8.25cm) in height and weighs 5.25 lbs. The antenna has a wind survivability of 200mph and has a vertical beam width of 90 degrees.
According to Michael Berry, the President and CEO of Mobile Mark, “The LPD Series provides outstanding performance on the VHF frequency bands that are specified and it is cost efficient and very reliable.”
