 The GALAXY INFL8-5 by Shakespeare is an inflatable antenna that can be rapidly deployed via a CO2 cartridge or a manual inflation tube. The INFL8 antenna inflates to 1.6M to offer a full 3db antenna, with a range of up to 3 times greater than any existing helical emergency antenna.

After use, the INFL8 can be deflated and stowed away safely in its compact, visible storage bag until required again.

The antenna can be mounted with its hook and loop straps allowing for quick and easy installation in any weather to stanchions, outriggers or other vertical structures on board.

The antenna also features grommets on the top and bottom to facilitate hanging and securing to spreaders, masts, hard tops and other structures even in case the inflatable bladder becomes damaged.

The connectors included in the package allow for versatile connection options. The pre-soldered PL-259 connector allows connection to a Fixed VHF directly or a handheld via the included SMA Adaptor.
