An artificial ground plane, allowing you to mount an
aerial where you cannot get a normal metal-to-metal connection for the earth.
The ground plain can be used on boats, vehicles, houses, portacabins,
wheelchairs, bicycles, motorbikes, backpacks and more.
the added advantage of isolating the aerial system from the vehicle, helping to
get rid of some interference (i.e. in modern tractors etc)
SUGGESTIONS FOR FITTING :
- On a bracket fixed to the
standard roof bars of Discovery, Freelander, Frontera etc
- Through the roof of Land
Rovers – no need to protect your earth connection from oxidisation
- Fibreglass/GRP cabs on
trucks, farm machines, motorhomes etc.
- Roofracks and bullbars that
are power coated or similar, that you don’t want to expose metal on
- Anywhere that a conventional
earth connection is not easy to make
An Electronic Ground
Plane. This can be
fitted to a bracket or mirror mount (although too large for fitting to gutter
mounts) and has a standard 3/8” aerial connection on the top, and socket for a
standard CB cable plug on the bottom.
This unit simulates a
connection to ground, so you do not have to worry about your metal to metal
earthing. This will cure any SWR problems which are down to poor earthing, but
if an aerial is in the wrong place, i.e. too close to metal around it, the EGP
will not help.
Also a good way of helping to
reduce interference as it allows the aerial to be completely isolated from the
