Product Description


The RAMI254 is a direct replacement for the OE-254/GRC Antenna Group. It is comprised of fewer piece parts,
allowing for quicker assembly and erection, along with being capable of both VHF (30-88 MHz) and UHF (225-
450 MHz) operation modes. It can be deployed atop its 27 ft. mast or utilized on the ground standing on its tripod
base. It is manufactured to meet the mechanical and environmental specifications as called out in MIL-PRF-49204
(OE-254/GRC specification). The antenna comes complete with 70 ft. RG-213 transmission line (antenna to
diplexer) and two 5 ft. RG-213 transmission lines (diplexer to radio set). Additional components for full assembly
and erection (mast or ground deployed) are included in the transit bag.


The AS-3916/VRC Antenna is a Survivable Low Profile version of the AS-3900A/VRC Antenna. It is used with the SINCGARS Radio System on vehicles which launch TOW Anti-Armor Missiles where the back-blast of the missile launchers would damage the AS-3900A/VRC Antenna. The AS-3916/VRC can withstand the application of 20,000 VRMS to the antenna element without adverse affect to the antenna or radio. The antenna is produced to the U.S. Army CECOM Specification A3180155. The antenna has a higher power capacity to allow multiplexing of up to four (4) radios to a single antenna. This eliminates a co-site problem of multiple antennas interfering with each other.
