A fin-shaped antenna, that’s what Shakespeare Marine has come up with. The 5912-Dorsal is a VHF, AIS and AM/FM antenna with an unusual fin-shaped design, made of strong and durable materials. It is designed for boats up to 15 meters and for coastal sailing, achieving a range of four miles at 1W and 10 miles at 25W.
