RF Ground & Antenna Accessories
- Ideal conductor for RF grounding of SSB radios and other noise sensitive transceivers or for bonding of thru-hulls, etc.
- Flexible – easily conforms to vessel contours
- .01″ (25mm) thick – see matrix for available lengths and widths
- Tight copper mesh (.05″ x .01″ wire spacing) ideal for creating a ground plane in hull. Length: 25′; Width: 4″
- May be placed into electronics enclosures to provide an RF barrier.
