Monotech Dark Floryda

Seems to be the season when antennas look like another? PNI looks like a Virginia (they never answered any messages about side by side test) and now from Poland we have the Monotech Dark Floryda that looks like the President Florida. Guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?


So on the tale of the tapes between the two:


  • Frequencies: 26,8-27,6 MHz
  • SWR: <1.2:1
  • Amp: >5 dBi
  • Max/Temp Power: 10W/30W
  • Impedance: 50 Ohm
  • Whip length: 400mm
  • Connector: UHF Male (PL-259), 3.9m cable
  • Polarity: Vertical
  • Material: Copper and Stainless Steel


1/4 wave

fiber / graphite

1.1/1 adjustable

+1 dBi

50 W PEP

1000 Khz (100 ch)

0.4 kg

450 mm
And of course the Florida has 10 year warranty and the Floryda 1 year.
Costings Floryda £28 including shipping and Florida £39.95 but comes with longer warranty should you need some assistance in its lifetime. And all things that look the same are not the same as we all know.
