Your VHF radio is only as good as the antenna to which it is connected!
Get the best antenna in the world at less than the price of an ordinary
one - get a Metz Manta-6.
The Metz Manta-6 Marine VHF Antenna is ideal for masthead mounting due to low
weight, stainless construction and UV resistance. It's also suitable for deck or
rail level mounting where it will outperform a typical 54 inch fiberglass antennas.
The precut 34'' whip tunes the entire VHF/FM marine band. The stainless steel construction
of whip, coil, support and UV resistant cap assure a lifetime of outstanding performance.
The Metz Manta-6 is used exclusively by the U.S. Coast Guard Search and Rescue vessels.
|A note from the owners of AhoyCaptain:
We removed our old Metz antennae when we pulled our mast for repainting.
As it was on our Corbin 39 "Witch of the Wave" when we bought her, we were
unsure of it's exact age, but we know it was at least ten years old since
we've owned "the Witch" that long. Other than a small crack in the lip of
the cap and needing a new O-ring, the antennae was in great condition. We
contacted Lee Metz of Metz Communication to ask for replacement parts. Lee
insisted that we return the old antennae for a new Metz Manta-6 at no charge.
That's what we call a true LIFETIME WARRANTY.
