Scout KS-30 AIS Fiberglass Antenna

Scout KS-30 AIS Fiberglass Antenna


The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automated tracking system used on ships and by Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) for identifying and locating vessels by electronically exchanging data with other nearby ships and VTS stations. AIS transponders use two different frequencies, VHF maritime channels 87B (161.975 MHz) and 88B (162.025 MHz).

SCOUT has designed the KS-30 antenna to be tuned on the AIS frequencies.

Extremely light and performing, the KS-30 is built with a 1,4 mm thick fiberglass whip that gets fully foam injected with the special Scout 100% waterproof technique, and it’s ice white coloured with high gloss anti-UV filter to prevent colour deterioration. The antenna is supplied with 5m RG-58 MIL cable and 1 PL-259 connector to complete the installation on board.
