Shakespeare Electronic Products Group recently introduced the low-profile 5253-ORB antenna for Orbcomm subscribers.
Fitting applications where small size is important, this compact 36″ antenna is optimized for the Orbcomm 137-150 MHz band.
A half-wave, end-fed stainless steel whip, the 5253-ORB comes with 15′ of RG-58 cable.
Its construction includes a tin-plated copper wire coil housed in a sealed, chrome-plated brass canister that minimizes de-tuning associated with plastic canisters. To suit various installation requirements, the 5253-ORB has a standard 1″-14 thread ferrule that fits an array of Shakespeare antenna mounts.
