The 830-series lightweight VHF dipole antenna is made with high-grade aluminum and features a field-adjustable pattern for directional or omnidirectional coverage. The antenna is direct current (DC) grounded for lightning protection and dissipation of static buildup, and external cable harnesses are triple-reinforced against water migration. The product is available with two elements with 3 – 6 decibel (dB) gain relative to a dipole (dBd) or four elements with 6 – 9 dBd gain.
The IP-based MAX Dispatch integrates a full range of tools and resources into a single console system, giving dispatchers instant access to information they need from a single, centralized user interface.

The product is built to support current operations and adapt as operations change over time.
