Boating enthusiasts worldwide look to Shakespeare® for quality marine antennas. The Fiberglass Loran C Marine Antenna features hand-soldered connections, brass and copper core, metal ferrules, and polyurethane finish. The model 173 is a classic specialty antenna. The fiberglass Loran C whip antenna is designed to last in the toughest salt or fresh water environments.

A 4 foot tall fiberglass marine antenna that is ideally suited for use where strong Loran C signals are transmitted as well as inland waterways. The top loaded fiberglass Loran C whip picks up strong signals from Loran C towers and DGPS signals. Marine navigation has come a long ways since the days of the sextant and steering by the stars. Make sure your Loran receiver has a quality Shakespeare® marine antenna.

A Loran coupler is not included with the antenna but can be purchased separately for connecting to your receiver.
