The Bonito Boni-Whip marine antenna is one of the smallest (only approx. 50cm long) long-, medium- and shortwave active antennas in the marine market. Despite its small size, it renders excellent reception. With its range of 20 kHz to 300 MHz, the antenna covers both shortwave and FM. The antenna amplifier is directly integrated in the antenna and is powered by a power inserter requiring 12-15 V. The circuit boards are multi- protected against corrosion and the bracket is made of stainless steel.
The 2016 model has new housing and a new, longer and more flexible radiating element which results in signals which are stronger than before by 3dB.
We only recommend on-board active antennas, in case you cannot use the aft stay or a long wire antenna because active antennas can often make interferences even stronger. We tested many antennas and found a good compromise with this in-house development and at a good price at that.
Tip: I recommend you order a roll of Nittotape (self-sealing adhesive tape) at the same time to product connections and to prevent corrosion.
