Tactical Blade Antenna

30-90 MHz – MPMP30X3 (NSN: 5985-01-550-5480) (1Y00350)


The MPMP30X3 tactical blade antenna is designed to be used in military manpack applications where reliability is needed most. This antenna works with all radios within the 30-90 MHz band and is equipped with its own matching network and does not require external tuning.

The traditional connector provided with the antenna is a PSC-5, which is a BNC Female contact pin and ground finger barrel reinforced with a 3/4-16 threaded flange. (Other connectors can be provided upon request.)

The radiator is constructed of layered stainless steel leaf springs and is protected by a tough outer neoprene sheath. The radiator and base are connected by a gooseneck for various angle possibilities.

All exposed metallic surfaces are protected with Prolane-T black 2 part polyurethane paint.
