Guys, the standard Zara60 type antenna is supplied with four metres of antenna cable. If you wish to use a roof console, you will need a longer cable.

We now carry two Zara60 antennas, one with the standard four metre cable, but the other will have EIGHT metres of Cable.

When ordering radios or antennas, please ensure you use the correct designation:

Zara60 - 4 metres cable
Zara60/8 - 8 metres antenna cable.

There is a small price difference and this will be included in the new May 2015 price list which should come out in a week or two.
