UHF Rat Tail

Please refer to the VHF counterpoise page, and our Youtube Video antennas playlist for more information on the general principles and advantages to using counterpoise with resonant antennas.

We have found with field testing that there is an advantage to using counterpoise with both UHF and VHF, but the advantage gains are more pronounced with the latter. The situation where a user will gain the most from this would be for transmitting from lower ground terrain features and trying to maximize their range to the fullest extent possible. This adapter will fit the 270A, 1/4 wave duck, and UHF stubby, as long as they have an SMA-M or SMA-F base connector.
