Televisions on a boat are increasingly commonplace. With the simple-to-install Glomex Avior VT300 Omnidirectional TV/FM antenna from GA Communications, it’s never been easier to bring analog and digital broadcasts onboard—at a price that’s hard to ignore.
The most noticeable feature of the Avior VT300 antenna is its compact white, anti-yellowing radome. At only 4″ dia. x 8″ H and 8.8 oz., it’s specifically made for smaller boats that can’t accommodate large TV antenna domes and only need short range reception, depending on height and conditions. The amplifier allows the antenna to have an increase in gain with a 24.5 dB average to receive vertical and horizontal polarized TV signals simultaneously from 360°. The amplifier has two independent outputs for TV and radio, which allows the reception of VHF/UHF and FM frequencies.
The VT300 runs on 12V, has an impedance of 75 ohms and a frequency range of 40/890 MHz. Glomex supplies a heavy-duty nylon mount, an amplifier, and 33′ and 5′ lengths of coaxial cable for connection to the antenna and the TV. A video is at www.bit.ly/GlomexTV.
The Glomex Avior VT300 Omnidirectional TV/FM antenna costs US$119. It comes with a lifetime warranty.
