Itasca, IL – February 11, 2019 — Mobile Mark Antenna Solutions has introduced a new UHF surface-mount antenna in the sleek, aerodynamic “MaxFin” housing. The MXF-450 features a stylish combination of matte & polished finish and provides a sleek, high-tech look on the vehicle.
The antenna covers 440-470 MHz with 2 dBi gain across the band. The UHF antenna element fits in this slim Fin-style radome that measures only 7 ½” long x 2 ¼” wide by 2 ½” tall (19 cm x 5.7 cm x 6.4 cm).
The Public Safety community will appreciate the fact that this antenna is narrow enough to fit between the roof ridges on the Ford Explorer and on other vehicles with height or width restrictions.
According to Michael Berry, Mobile Mark’s President and CEO, “The MaxFin Series has been well received because it is compact, attractive and offers strong performance. We are particularly proud of the fact that these antennas are designed and manufactured in our Itasca, Illinois factory.”
The MXF-450 antenna is surface mounted through a single thru-hole installation. The stud size is 7/8-20 thread, and it mounts to surfaces up to .2” (5 mm) thick. The antenna is typically supplied with 15 feet (4.5m) of RG-58 cable and terminated with an SMA plug. Custom configurations are available.
The antenna can handle up to 100 Watts of power and meets IPx7 Water Ingress rating.
This “Made-in-the-USA” antenna is designed and manufactured in our Itasca, Illinois facility. It will meet Buy America purchasing requirements.
The MXF-450 UHF surface-mount antenna offers UHF coverage in a low-profile package and brings styling and practicality to UHF performance.
