HF Inverted V Dipole Antenna


The DIPL-A0056 is a wideband inverted-V dipole antenna that operates over the 1.5 to 30 MHz band with a VSWR of less than 2.5:1 over 90% of the band. This antenna gives a superior radiation pattern for near vertical incidence sky wave (NVIS) and short distance HF jamming and communications. The antenna requires either a 10 m or 12 m fibreglass sectioned mast with guy ropes. This can be supplied as an optional extra. Included with the antenna is a storage drum which allows for the quick and efficient stowage of the antenna with its feed box and distributed loads.
