Shakespeare 5250-AIS Antenna

Shakespeare 5250-AIS Antenna$87.50; www.shakespeare-marine.com

Shakespeare’s 5250-AIS is a 3-foot, stainless steel whip antenna designed to meet the broad bandwidth needs of AIS transponders. A chrome-plated brass canister minimizes the detuning associated with less robust construction of plastic canisters, according to the manufacturer.

A variety of stainless steel ratchet and rail mounts are sold separately, providing more installation options.

Match it with Shakespeare’s Skinny Mini 5250 VHF antenna (also $87.50) for a clean, symmetrical look.

The antenna comes with 15 feet of RG-58 cable and a PL-259 connector.
