Marine Emergency VHF Antenna

Based on a proven Rolatube design developed for and in use by the military, the marine Emergency VHF Antenna is a unique piece of communications equipment. The patented design integrates a high-performance antenna into the rollable composite material, removing the need for separate mast and antenna units and reducing equipment count and setup time.  Just unroll the antenna, connect it to your radio and start transmitting.

Convenient stowage

The rollable composite construction enables the Revolve marine emergency VHF antenna to be stored easily, taking up minimal space on board. When needed, it unrolls in seconds to form a 2.5m long, high performance VHF antenna for use in situations when primary communications equipment is not operational.

High performance and efficiency

Tuned to channel 16 with AIS compatibility, the rollable emergency marine antenna is compact, light and portable and offers exceptional RF performance. The design and IPX7 rated waterproof composite construction is maintenance free for maximum reliability ensuring its always ready for use in the harshest conditions.

Marine Emergency VHF Antenna

Quick, reliable and flexible

Incorporating rigging holes and supplied with velcro straps, the antenna is deployed in seconds either be handheld or rigged to any suitable mast or superstructure to gain height and range. The full 2.5m length of the antenna further increases performance.

Outstanding design and features

Designed to maximise your chances of quick contact and recovery the antenna takes seconds to deploy, has a high-viz flourescent yellow cover and incorporates a long life SOLAS approved LED strobe.

The Revolve emergency VHF antenna revolutionises capability, convenience and reliability in the field of emergency communications.

Integrated Antenna Mast Technology

 

 

Storage Size – the Revolve Emergency VHF Antenna is constructed from an advanced patented rollable composite material from Rolatube and covered in a high-viz yellow material. Unrolled in seconds, it forms a 2.5m/100ins antenna weighing around 750g  (1.65lb).  To store it, roll it back up and it will fit into a space 11 x 13cm (4.3 x 5.1in) taking up minimal on-board storage space.

Proven Design – the antenna is a development of  military grade design that provides high quality RF communications in a highly portable and compact solution. Proven in theatres of operation around the world and also used by NGOs, search and rescue organisations, Police and Fire agencies, the technology has now been developed and incorporated into the Emergency Marine Antenna.

Functionality – reliability and high performance are built into the Revolve Emergency Marine Antenna. Tuned to operate between 156 and 162 MHz and optimised for channel 16, the antenna is also compatible with AIS. With no moving parts and requiring no additional components, the antenna can be relied upon to work when needed.

Ease of Use – supplied in a waterproof storage bag, the antenna is compact and takes up minimal storage space. When needed, the antenna is simply rolled out and the led strobe attached to the top if required. The permanently attached 6m cable will connect to either a hand-held or installed radio. Securing holes are provided at each end to enable the antenna to be rigged with cord or the included velcro straps can be used for the same purpose.

Visibility – the body of the antenna is covered in a high-viz yellow cover to aid location. An integrated long-life SOLAS approved LED strobe to further assist location.

Lightweight  – the rollable composite material is incredibly light and strong making the antenna a fraction of the weight of traditional designs.

Maintenance Free – all the materials used in the construction are maintenance free and easy to wash down.

Tough, weatherproof finish – the Revolve antenna is designed to be highly visible and stay looking that way.

Environment – The Emergency Marine Antenna has the following core principles guiding its design and manufacture:

  • Supply chain prioritises locally sourced and supplied material
  • Packaging is minimal and made from recycled paper
  • Product is free of single use plastics and is end of life recyclable
  • Manufacture is a low energy process and does not produce any additional emissions at point of build
