Metz Manta 6 Marine VHF Antenna

The Metz Communications Manta-6 marine VHF antenna is excellent for masthead mounting applications or for smaller boats with limited room and mounting locations.

Antennae whip and housing are both made from stainless steel and the support is nickel plated to endure salt spray. The UV cap will not crack or discolor from prolonged exposure to sunlight, and every connection is soldered to ensure clear and powerful signal strength.

Two different mounts are available (sold separately) for mounting on a bow rail or flat surface. The whip is also completely replaceable in the event of an accident.

          Comments about Metz Manta 6 Marine VHF Antenna:

          I'm a licensed Global Maritime Distress and Safety System maintainer and an Amateur Extra (ham) operator. I was a little incredulous at the claim of 1.2-to-1 SWR for this antenna. But sure enough, it tested better than that. It is solidly constructed and measures a dead short at DC, which improves its lightning survivability over the more common DC-open designs.

                Comments about Metz Manta 6 Marine VHF Antenna:

                The Manta is one of the best and most durable VHF antennas. My previous one purchased through West Marine claimed to have a sealed choke and have SS metal parts. In one year it rusted and leaked rendering my outgoing signal almost useless....and I had to use my handheld. Other Manta users in my yacht club have had no problem, hence my purchase.

                    After more than fifteen years of service it was time to replace my Metz UHF antennae. I sought out this specific brand because of the past performance and durability. I had a certain mounting location and I also had the requirement that I was going to install a Windex wind vane on top of the Mertz antennae. It arrive in a shipping tube and was in perfect condition when it was delivered. The installation was a breeze. Looks great. I will continue to seek out Metz antennas the next time a have to service my masthead.

                        I replaced another antenna with the Metz and RG 213 cable. I used an L-shaped bracket on the side of the top of mast and it has the strongest signal in the fleet. TX and RX well over 25 miles.

                            Works perfect on my 17 1/2' boat. Much better (and cheaper) than a full 8' fiberglass antenna.
