Genuine GME Rugged, high performance Antennas to suit Australia's harsh conditions

GME's latest innovation in UHF antennas, covert transparent On-Glass Antenna, the AE5004. The AE5004 is ideal for those in need of a discrete UHF antenna set-up. The transparent On-Glass antenna is an innovation combining the need for a covert and high-performing antenna. As this range of On-Glass antennas are mounted on the inside of the windshield there is no opportunity for theft or vandalism, and no creation of wind noise. The AE5004 offers superior performance when compared to the current range of wire On-Glass antennas which is achieved through the geometry of the printed circuit artwork on the transparent antenna, while the direct connection of the antenna to the coaxial cable allows for easy installation. The AE5004 is proudly Australian made and suited to a wide range of vehicles from 4WD and luxury vehicles through to agricultural and earthmoving equipment.

GME's range of Antennas are built tough with quality materials to take on the harsh landscape of Australia. Check out the range of GME antennas from 2.1-8.1 dBi in various lengths. Repco also have replacement antenna whips so you can change your antenna needs on the fly just by screwing on to the original base.

What is dBi gain?

When buying an antenna you want to make sure it's going to be effective for your UHF needs and not just look good on the bull bar. Antenna gain is measured in dBi and is simply the measure of an antenna's ability to direct or concentrate radio frequency energy in a particular pattern or direction. dBi Gain is one of those things that's not just the bigger number is better. .

Choosing the antenna can be confusing at first but if you know where you're primarily going to use your 4wd's UHF then it can be fairly simple. Are you using your 4WD for going bush? Up through the mountains? Down into rivers and valleys? Or are you wanting to use your UHF system primarily on the flat country roads? Figuring this out will help you choose the right antenna and get the most out of your purchase.

Simple rule of thumb for understanding dBi Gain:

  • High Gain Antenna (8.1dBi) - This is ideal for flat country side with fewer obstacles in the signals path. This is good for touring the outback, heading up the Hume or playing i-spy with your mates on the treeless Nullarbor desert plains. The signal radiates in a straight narrow path.
  • Medium Gain Antenna (5.1 - 6.6 dBi) - This is the go to antenna if you do a bit of everything. This antenna is ideally suited to those who drive around suburban and country areas. The medium gain antennas are less likely to be obstructed from buildings, trees or mountains.
  • Unity gain (2.1 dBi) - This describes an antenna that outputs a signal the same level as the input. It works on a very broad pattern and is far less likely to be obstructed from buildings, trees, rugged terrain or mountains.
