Power tower for Radar dome

I'm looking for a stainless steel power tower or scan strut to mount radar dome to A frame. Also need attachment for all round white and radar reflector.

Any ideas?

I think the active x reflector is same fitting as standard vhf ariel.

Thank you.

If I read your post right and you want a bracket to take an all round white nav light and an active radar reflector then the Scanstrut Tapered Mast might work, it is a bit big but it will take all those and more. Priced around £895

If you want something a bit more compact and just a mount for the radome then there is a choice of ali, stainless or plastic.

That is a standard mount with accesories for ARW light and antenna.



The Scanstrut SC111 at around 80 quid has a male 1" thread that will fit an Echomax active radar reflector.

And SC113 is about £150, which includes a Hella LED all round white.

Edit: The pic you attached is the Raymarine specific one, the generic version is SPT1002.

Your local chandler will be able to get one in for you, or any of the online guys.

Full specs:

Scanstrut`s Stainless PowerTower® is created using a highly polished stainless steel, this makes a great looking installation on any boat.

As with all the PowerTower range it is designed to elevate your antenna from the cabin roof, fly bridge or radar arch, to ensure the radar has a clear view of the horizon and maximum performance can be achieved.

Watertight Installation
Pre-fitted IP65 gland to seal cable entry into stem and a watertight base seal included so no need for messy sealant

Pre-drilled mounting holes, the antenna fastens to PowerTower top plate using own mounting bolts

Only 150mm (6") square mounting footprint which makes it ideal for installation on narrow arches or RIB A-frames

Mirror finish marine grade 316 stainless steel

(Pic shows a Furuno, but this is fits anything other than a Raymarine)

Am I right in thinking your radome is a Lowrance BR24? If so the SPT001 is the one for you.
