Field Expedient Base Station Kit
The UV-5R is world renown as a low cost comms solution for beginners and experts alike. What many folks miss, though, are the numerous replacements and add-ons that are required to get the most out of it. On top of that, programming and using the radio can be a huge barrier. Here at Radio Made Easy, we’ve done all the legwork for you and built a turn-key kit that solves this problem.
This system provides the solution for utilizing your radio as an indoor communications base station. This is ideal for use when traveling or renting, as no drilling is required. The Comet Jumper enables a window or door passthrough for your antenna wire. Outside the window, you can use the throw weight and paracord to hoist the antenna up into a tree or other structure.
The RME Field Expedient Base Station Kit includes:
- Slim Jim Roll Up Antenna
- 50ft Paracord and Custom Throw Weight
- Comet Window Feed-Thru Jumper
- 15ft Coax (inside window to radio)
- 35ft Coax (outside window to antenna)
- SO-239 to BNC adapter
This kit is designed as an add on to our UV5R Essentials Kit or another handheld or mobile radio up to 100 watts. It will connect to any UHF/VHF radio with a BNC (using included adapter) or SO-239 (without adapter) antenna connection.
PLEASE NOTE: there is a 2 to 4 week lead time for all products for assembly and/or programming.
