For successful airband monitoring from a vehicle, you need an external antenna. You also need one that offers broad band performance in order to cover both the civil and military bands. The WSM-225 provides this and more. It comes with 9 feet of coax cable terminated with a BNC plug and the base of the antenna is fitted with a strong micro size magnet. Total length of the whip section is 28 inches. Simply place it on top of the roof of your car (must be steel) and plug the far end into your receiver using the BNC plug. Then hear the difference.

  • 9 feet of coax with BNC Connection
  • 108 - 137MHz & 225 - 400MHz

    Great reception, favorable magnetic material October 3, 2013
    Reviewer: Jonathan Kovach from Timmins, ON Canada  
    Major improvement to hear aircrafts from 80-100 nautical miles at 5000 to 40 000 feet, unlike the rubber ducky antennas. Holds well at 100 km/hr even with strong winds. I hide the thinner cable under the mat in my back seat. The magnetic mount wares out after 6-10 months. Sometimes the magentic piece falls apart, prompts me to always get replacements. Love the antenna!!

    Airband Magnetic Mobile Antenna September 30, 2013
    Reviewer: Dennis Michaud from Wethersfield, CT United States  
    This antenna so far is picking up ATC very well, usually I would hear just aircraft. Used on my BCT15X and very happy. I haven't heard any military traffic yet but based on results so far should be A OK.

    Good Antenna March 21, 2013
    Reviewer: Wil from Myerstown, PA United States  
    Good antenna but not the strongest magnet.  Blows off if driving in semi-windy conditions.  Reception is good for the price though.

    Great antenna January 8, 2012
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Mount Morris, MI United States  
    I bought this because my Radio Shack magnet mount antenna wasn't picking up the tower at all unless I was 2-3 miles from the airport. This one picks up the tower (with static) from about 10-12 miles from the airport, and I can receive the tower clearly from up to about 5 miles from the airport. I highly recommend this antenna. I haven't tested it with military band yet though.

    Super antenna.
