  • Codan - 9350M Automatic Tuning Whip Antenna

Codan’s internationally acclaimed 9350M Automatic Tuning Whip Antenna is designed for use with frequency hopping M series radios in mobile operations, where transceivers have a large channel capacity.

The 9350M Antenna is constructed to withstand the harsh field and environmental conditions common in military operations. It meets or exceeds the shock and vibrations requirement for MIL-STD-810.

The 9350M takes only a few seconds to tune to any frequency. It will seek the optimum tuning point for all operating conditions — this ensures the best communications possible.

Key Features

  • Rugged design

    The 9350M antenna is constructed to withstand and operate in severe environments and temperatures. Its main section is constructed of fibreglass reinforced nylon and it exceeds the shock and vibrations requirements for MIL-STD-810.

  • Fast, optimum tuning

    Typically, the 9350M takes only a few seconds to tune to any frequency.

  • High radiation efficiency

    The 9350M antenna has a comparably high rate of radiation efficiency, rated for maximum voice power of 125 watts PEP.

  • Continuous tuning

    The whip antenna provides continuous tuning to any required frequency over the transmit/receive operating range of 2–30 MHz.

  • Two whips supplied

    Two whip top sections are provided with the 9350M antenna – the primary whip encased in polyurethane covered fiberglass, and a shorter backup whip made from stainless steel.

  • Sensitive to weak signals

    When in Scan or Free Tune Receiver mode, a broadband amplifier is activated. This makes the antenna sensitive to even the weakest signals over the entire frequency range.
