Omni Antenna, Half Wave Dipole, 4.4 - 5.9 GHz, 3.2 dBi, Integrated Strain Relief Spring

Southwest Antennas has released a new version of our small form factor C-band omni-directional antenna in a new design with a weather sealed spring base for strain relief. For SWAP-C application needs this antenna was designed with a small form factor, measuring just over 3” long.

This antenna features C-band coverage from 4.4 – 5.9 GHz for operation in many licensed and unlicensed military, federal and commercial application bands, both domestic and international.

Originally designed for use on tactical radio systems for law enforcement and first responders, and as is typical for SWA's small dipole antennas this product is well suited and fully compatible with all major multi-antenna MIMO / MANET mesh radio platforms including Silvus, Persistent Systems, Domo Tactical (DTC), Rajant, Microhard, Doodle Labs, and others and are also fully compatible with single antenna radio systems such as Trellisware.

This antenna comes standard with an SMA(m) RF connector. If you need a specific RF connector for compatibility with a radio system please contact us and we can release a new part number with your connector of choice.


  • 4.4 - 5.9 GHz frequency coverage: Optimized for 4.91 - 4.96 GHz band operation
  • Half wave dipole design
  • Compact form factor
  • 3.2 dBi peak gain
  • 50W power handling
  • Integrated strain relief spring with heatshrink cover

Omni Concealment Antenna, 4.4 - 5.3 GHz, 6.4 dBi, Integrated RF Cable

Southwest Antennas has released a new omni-directional concealment antenna for C-band applications, designed to look like a standard GPS puck antenna.

Originally designed for law enforcement surveillance applications, this product features a 4.4 - 5.3 GHz operating frequency, 6.4 dBi of peak gain, and is horizontally polarized.

A magnetic base allows this antenna to be quickly deployed on any magnetic surface, and 15’ of LMR-100 cable allow radios to be located away from the antenna installation location. With an overall height of just 0.76”, this slim antenna can be deployed on vehicles, equipment boxes, utility cabinets, or similar locations while maintaining an unobtrusive look for covert applications.

For optimal RF performance as shown on the product datasheet, a ground plane of at least 6” x 6” is required.


• C-Band frequency coverage: 4.4 - 5.3 GHz
• Small form factor "puck" design
• Magnetic base for rapid deployment
• High performance antenna design
• 20W power handling
• 6.4 dBi peak gain
• Horizontal polarization
• 15 feet of integrated LMR-100 cable
• Type-N(m) RF connector
• Ideal for Concealment and Surveillance Applications
