SATURN 39 Inch 1/2 Wave Low Profile Base Antenna. The SATURN (AKA Workman Signal-mate model B-100) low profile base station CB antenna is shorter than our other base antennas. The Saturn is ideal for installing on apartment balconies or in other situations where a large base station will not work.
A true low profile antenna for base station radio use that still packs plenty of punch the Saturn 39 inch. A no ground plane needed design that stands only 36 inches above the base mount, provides the lowest possible wind resistance to stay upright longer. Fully weatherproof so you won't need to worry about retracting your Saturn 39 inch low profile base antenna due to inclement weather. Listen, monitor, and talk as long as desired over the 11 meter (26-30 MHz) AM band.
In order to tune this antenna, you might need to try different lengths of coax to either lengthen or shorten the antenna system based on the SWR readings you get on your upper and lower frequencies.
Tune the Saturn base antenna for lowest VSWR and best performance with in-field accuracy using your Standing Wave Ratio meter. The B-100 gives excellent performance in a small package, in fact it out performs other larger base station antennas. With power handling rated to 500 watts Peak Envelope Power the Saturn base station antenna can handle any CB or Single-side band radio transmissions.
