Product overview

• High quality discone • A must amongst serious scanner enthusiasts• Never fails to impress those looking for long distance signals• Highly receive sensitive and has an amazing range of transmitting frequencies• Includes clamps and bracketsRequires a coax feed and N-type connector for base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All round excellent antenna Brought this scanking discone as a replacment for my old one (around 30 yrs old) and very very pleased with it. I use mine for the marine band and live not the east coast, I have so far heard down to Dover & over to Ostend, so a excellent receiver antenna. I went to Maplin as know they sell quality and happy to see they use Moonraker as they do make excellent quality stuff. All in all this is a great antenna for scanners and value for money and a must

how do you connect coax to u need to solder it to the unit or does it have a fitting for coax to fit on ? thanks

Asked by: djnebzi
It has a "N type" socket at the base. you would need a cable terminated with a N type connector to attach to this.

Is there SWR data availiable for the transmit bands? Thanks = Tony

Asked by: Tony Virago
I am afraid this is not provided by Moonraker, you would need to test with a SWR meter to be sure.
