TCI M.A.S.T. allows operators to mount small tactical radios (MBITR AN/PRC-148, RF-7800, RF-5800 Falcon II, AN/PRC-152, Motorola HT1000, PRC-153, XTS, XPR, TRBO and APX6000/7000 Series, PRR, Astro Saber and specified Kenwood Models) on their torso or sides of their kit while leaving the antenna high on their back to achieve maximum L.O.S. (Line of sight) with other radios drastically improving communications. While optimal communications is always a benefit to any operation the real benefit lies in the fact that the antenna is no longer in a position to potentially interfere with the shooters weapons placement, manual dexterity or peripheral vision. Whether you are trying to place a charge, treat a casualty, or lying in the prone, the M.A.S.T. ensures that the antenna will be well out of your way while affording you the best possible communications.

Word to the wise...TCI does not recommend trying to make your own variation of MAST.  We utilize advanced manufacturing techniques and machines to provide the durability needed for this kind of application.  We have also studied the issue in depth and the result is impedance matched and frequency optimized cable lengths.  You cannot get the same axial strength at the connector by building these cables by hand.  Think of it like this - Audio cables provide you will immediate feedback letting you know there has been a failure.  The microphone, PTT or headset stops producing or receiving audio.  RF cables provide no indication they have failed besides an immediate loss in transmit range or loss of comms all together.  When this happens, you may not be able to easily problem solve the issue if it occurs at a critical time. We occasionally read postings on various web forums offering advice or over simplifying the process of making RF cables.  Plus,  with MAST, you get a complete kit including the MAST cable of your choosing, MALICE Clip and  Universal Antenna Harness.  For the money, you cannot go wrong.

A loyal customer from a foreign military unit recently stated, "I've been tasked with finding a suitable alternative to the current MBITR antenna extension my unit is currently fielding. This is due to weakness in the current crimping of the TNC connectors and inconsistent manufacturing. I've been operating a M.A.S.T. since 2006 and have had no issues with it."

Great Product
Benny Markos (APO, AE 09354) 11/28/2011 12:02 PM
Really frees up space on your kit compared to using a homemade coax cable "Mantenna" and when climbing in and out of vehicles all day, its nice to not have a whip antenna stabbing you face/arm/arm pit. Very well made product that is taking abuse very well.

Awesome
Jacob Kohlman (Oneill, NE) 9/8/2011 7:10 AM
I heard about the TCI Mast from another soldier and thought I would check out the site. I found the TCI Mast and ordered it and I love it. Been using it for two weeks now and it is a lot better than having a antenna in front of me in my way all the time. Greatest investment I have made!

Solid piece of kit
Anthony Mayernik (Portland, OR) 7/31/2011 5:36 PM
Does what it says on the box. The V2 kit is perfect for our radio setup, with the QD to let our folks change out the radios and solidly built to survive getting thrown around. The 24" cable is the perfect length to put the radio on your chest and the antenna on your back without being so long as to get in the way.

What a deal...
Jason (Clarksville, TN) 5/10/2011 6:37 AM
We have been using MAST for several years and its been a great piece of kit. I recently got one of the version 2 kits with the 90 degree adapter and it rocks. Other guys need to check it out. Good $#!*!

Sweet!
USMC-JTAC (Boca Raton, FL.) 1/26/2011 10:34 AM
I ordered your JTAC/Liberator III comm suite a few months back for Afghanistan. I spoke to the owner on the phone and we talked for about 45 mins about FAC/JTAC tactical needs, etc. Awesome dude, awesome company. I spoke to my CO and got him onboard with TCI. I believe he ordered a bunch of MAST kits and JTAC suites as well with Op-funds....sweet.
