Handling 250 Watts, these antennas are ideal for most portable and mobile applications. They are light weight and perfect for use with a varity of mounts. I use these sticks on my HFpack because they are light weight and at around $13.00 each - cheap! I highly recommend the quick disconnect adapter.

2.5:1 SWR Measured Bandwidth / Band

  • 20M: 13.800 mhz - 14.440 mhz
  • 30M: 10.000 mhz - 10.300 mhz
  • 40M: 7.095 mhz - 7.280 mhz
  •   6M: 47.800 mhz - 54.400 mhz

Antenna bandwidth was measured with ALICE HFpack on my back using a 15 foot drag counterpoise wire. A SWR figure of 2.5:1 was used because the Icom 703 Plus antenna tuner will only match 3.0:1 or slightly higher.

On 40M I had to add thirty turns near the top of the stick to get it to work on CW.  My short counterpoise wire probably is the reason.
