The Sharkee® is now the official antenna of the Arizona Department of Public safety Highway Patrol car for all of their vital communications needs while successfully overcoming difficulties when it comes to today’s police vehicles.
By installing Panorama Antennas, Inc. dual Sharkee® kit Detroit PD, has a more visually appealing patrol vehicle, without sacrificing performance.
Panorama Antennas’ technical sales and support manager John Thomson recently spoke at the FCS Comms Installer event, discussing best practice for vehicle installations in the context of an update to FCS1362 – the UK industry code of practice for the installation of radio frequency equipment in road vehicles.
Before Panorama Antennas, Metro Fire was engineering an “antenna box” on top of the fire truck to install their NMO mounted antennas. This box was needed because of the thickness of the fire truck roof; it was a double paneled ceiling. The Sharkee, with the M18 mounting bush, fits perfectly through double panels solving this problem and replacing the need for an “antenna box”. Not only does our antenna solution cut down on the amount of antennas needed from 4 antennas to one, it also saves time and money for Metro Fire.
