New SeaSonde Antenna Accessories

Added convenience for uprighting, lowering, and stabilizing your antennas

SeaSonde Antenna Base Hinge Assembly

CODAR designed the SeaSonde Antenna Base Hinge Assembly to ease maintenance and repair work for field technicians. This assembly enables a single operator to more simply lower and upright a SeaSonde antenna.

The SeaSonde Antenna Base Hinge Assembly is compatible with the dome-style antennas (receive-only and combined transmit-receive) and long-range transmit antennas. The assembly is both durable and rugged, fabricated of 316 stainless steel.

The hinge assembly can be fixed to a variety of footings including a concrete pile or a steel base plate (such as shown in example above). Footings are not included.

While the SeaSonde dome antenna mast is designed to be bolted at its base, the new Dome Antenna Guy Rope Holder provides a simple means to secure the dome antenna via alternative method. Installation of this new accessory is as easy as lowering the antenna, unscrewing the dome, and slipping the flange onto the mast.


Four eye hooks fixed to a coated fiberglass flange provide tie-ins for guy ropes. Exposed metal components (washers, nuts, and eyebolt screws) are fabricated of 316 stainless steel.
