In times of emergency, a spare VHF antenna needs to be simple to spot and fast to mount. Shakespeare comes to the rescue with its 5910 Emergency Stowable Whip. Its bright yellow storage tube doubles as part of the mounting system.
The compact 9″ metal tube stows easily until needed. A boat owner simply pre-installs the included mounting clip. If the emergency VHF antenna is called to service, the tube slides securely in the clip as part of the mount. Once fully assembled, the VHF antenna is 16″ long. This system includes 20′ of RG-174 mini coax cable and a pre-installed PL-259 connector for quick and secure use when timing is critical.
Suggested retail price of the Shakespeare 5910 Emergency Stowable Whip is $89.95.
