The KUSA FMO is a ruggedly built, horizontally polarized FM transmit antenna with an omnidirectional pattern.
Like all KUSA antennas, the FMO is made of the finest materials using state of the art electrical and mechanical designs resulting in superior performance and long service life. The FMO is available as a single bay antenna or in vertically stacked arrays for additional gain.
