VHF Wearable Antenna for IOTV
30 – 512 MHz



Pharad’s octane® wearable VHF antennas are the best performing small form factor antennas for operation at 30 MHz and higher for the Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV) platform. 

This body-worn antenna is fabricated using a state-of-the-art thin flexible material that slips easily into the IOTV plate carrier pocket. 

The lightweight, unobtrusive design and flush mounting provide the soldier/marine a friendly alternative to long whip antennas.  Tactical VHF communications link performance is maintained without hindering the user's vision or movement. 

We also offer a dual radiator model that adds spatial diversity and further enhances link performance.  The standard TNC connector allows these antennas to easily connect to the PRC-152 and PRC-148 radios. 

An available tactical vest antenna/radio carrier allows the antenna and radio to be easily worn over clothing.  Their unsurpassed range and coverage performance make the octane® wearable antenna products the antenna of choice for VHF communications applications.
