KP Performance Antennas has released its latest line-up of rubber duck and whip-style antennas. These antennas seamlessly combine portability with high-tech functionality.

Rubber ducks and whip-style antennas have long been known for their compact and lightweight design, making them crucial additions to radios across diverse applications. The company has enhanced these characteristics with industrially tuned designs that align with precise frequency ranges. Also, introducing the stubby style supplies users with an even more compact option without compromising performance.

Distinguishing features of this line-up include a comprehensive coverage of frequency ranges from 650MHz to 5850MHz, with 0dBi to 4.5dBi gain specifically for rubber ducks. Beyond the conventional designs, customers will also find antennas in concave, stubby, blade styles and the versatile tilt-and-swivel style. Also, they are primed for specialised operations, especially in the increasingly relevant 4G LTE and 5G bands.

The company has ensured that the practical demands of users are met. These antennas have connector options in SMA male and RPSMA, enabling easy integration of devices. The 90° connectors offer unmatched versatility in installation and positioning.

Also, these antennas supply superior protection against water and dust ingress, a linearly polarised antenna technology for undisturbed signal transmission, and single-band antennas with a narrow bandwidth and dual-band Wi-Fi antennas for broader connectivity requirements.

“With the launch of our rubber duck and whip-style antennas, we aim to set a new industry standard in portable antenna solutions,” said Antenna product line manager Kevin Hietpas. “Each product is a testament to the KP Performance promise – blending ground-breaking technology with unmatched user convenience.”
