AS-295/UP, AS-295A/UP and AS-295B/'P have
transmission line reference. SWR is less than
minor differences in their feeder systems. The three
antenna assemblies are interchangeable, but the feeder
system of the replacement antenna must be modified to
duplicate the feeder system of the antenna being
removed. AS-295/UP, AS-295A'lP and AS-295B/UP are
