Designed for mast mounting on sailboats or for smaller craft that "heel" on the waves. Sends out a broader signal than a 6dB antenna, ensuring better signal dispersal in rough seas (but less range). Flexible whip styles provide the best horizon-to-horizon coverage.
Stainless steel finish with tin-plated copper elements. 3', 1-piece antenna with chromed brass ferrule. 15' RG-58 lead-in and PL-259 connector. Mfrs. 2-yr. warranty.

I purchused this antenna to use with my Cobra MR F45 Fixed Mount VHF Radio. Small enough to mount to my bayboat yet strong enough to give me all the range I need.

This is a short range antenna so height above water would be the only thing that would help increase the range for the antenna. On average, this antenna will do about 5-7 miles based on height. For the range you are looking for, you will need an 8’ antenna especially if you are on a lake or inland waterway. Thanks
