Marine antenna manufacturer Shakespeare has introduced the JF-3 Multi-Band Antenna into its Galaxy range. Built for recreational and commercial use, the JellyFish is an omni-directional, IP67 waterproof antenna for marine communication and transmission in harsh environments. Designed to reduce clutter on a boat, it features passive GPS, 2G, 3G and 4G cellular, and WiFi reception in one compact package.
 
According to the manufacturer, the omni-directional functionality enables the JF-3 to send and receive cellular and WiFi signals in all directions, ensuring network availability and dependable communications. The GPS portion is a passive antenna that can be used to replace existing GPS antenna heads. The JF-3 has its own ground-plane and can radiate on any mounting surface, including metal, plastic or fiberglass without a reduction in performance.
 
Measuring 1.6" x 4", this antenna is small enough to fit in most locations that might be restrictive to larger models. It has a mounting thread of M20 x 2.5 mm to allow it to be installed flush on flat horizontal surfaces. The JellyFish JF-3 Antenna comes with a limited two-year warranty and has a price of $288.95.
