There is now another choice for short antenna.

SM Group now have the stubby Pacific Antenna in black, not just white..
Saw it at SBS and looked good.
The mount come in black as well.

Am planning to swap one of my Vtronics for this to give it a test.
Have used the white ones before with great results on both ribs and pwcs

thats a freebie-well it is judging by the amount of blue rope we see on boats which has obviously had a previous life as an employee of telecom or whoever

Aerial recomendations

Hi,
I'm about to start buying all the bits and bobs i need for my new rib.Im a bit unsure on which aerial is best and after reading this i'm now even more confused about which might be the best.
Any comments / help would be appreciated as i need to buy 2 as im planning to install AIS

Many thanks in advance
Kim

My Pacific aerials will be 5 years old at the end of this year, and still going stong on their flexible mounts attached to the a-frame <famous last words>. Either way, it was £45 per aerial well spent at the time methinks
