You’ve just purchased a fixed-mount VHF radio. You know you need a good antenna to go with it, but you don’t want something especially tall. The 5400-XT Little Giant from Shakespeare could be the perfect choice. According to the manufacturer, the 4-footer provides “big antenna” communication capabilities.

The 5400-XT includes a heavy-duty fiberglass radome, which can withstand the high winds and stress that come with placement on powerboat radar arches, hard-tops and T-tops. Mounting the unit on one of these structures gives it the necessary elevation for strong communication performance.

Brass and copper elements and coaxial sleeve design are among the construction highlights of the 5400 XT. All connections are soldered by hand. A white polyurethane finish protects the antenna and helps keep it looking new. It is also available in black.
