80m - 6m

The X80 is an end fed aluminium vertical antenna, capable of allowing the user to work 80 meters through 6 meter bands using an ATU, also not requiring any counterpoise and can be fed using coax cable.

The antenna can be pole mounted at ground level or elevated depending on the user personnel requirements. It is rated at 300 watts pep and comes complete with all fixings and fixtures and full installation guide.
 
How it works: The antenna is fed using coax via an SO239 socket at the base of the unit a UNUN transformer is located in a weather sealed box at the bottom of the 6 meter telescoping aluminium element. The transformer reduces the high impedances generated to a more acceptable level making the antenna much more efficient and allowing proper and easy tuning via a manual and most automatic ATU’s. The antenna can be grounded if the user experiences excessive local static noise, but as the UNUN is DC grounded, grounding will not effect the tuning ratio’s.

5 band trapped vertical antenna

A high quality HF base antenna made in the USA.

Exclusive trap design makes Hustler traps ultra stable and dependable.

Not only can you adjust the frequency by tubing length, the can actually tune the traps for up to 2MHz shift.

Large diameter tubing gives full bandwidth on 10m to 40m.
On 80m you get around 100kHz bandwidth.

The absence of tapered tubing makes this antenna really rigid and the 8mm base tube wall adds to rigidity.

Can be ground mounted or elevated.
Radials need to be supplied by the user.

Frequency Bands 80, 40, 20, 15, 10m
Max Power 1000W
Length 7.64m
Radials not supplied
Weight 7.7kg
Tubing 31.75mm
Bracket size 45mm

HF-X-80 & HF-360 UPGRADE KIT

The upgrade kit enhances the 40m and 80m bands with its low angle of radiation, in some circumstances and installations it can mean the difference between white noise.

1.Please mount the bracket for the Plus Kit at the bottom of as per the photo.

2.Now attach the HF mobiles to the bracket. The HF mobiles can be angled horizontal or at a more vertical angle if space is an issue. Please ensure that the angle mounts are tightened up with the Allen key provided.

3.The 40 & 80 meter mobiles can be tuned in separately by moving the stainless steel whip up & down until SWR is achieved.

Specifications:

  • KIT ONLY (Antenna not included)
  • Fibreglass and Stainless Steel construction
  • 2.5 Metres (depending on adjustment)
  • Galvanised Steel Bracket
  • Instuctions included
  • Made in Great Britain

Diamond CP-6

CP6
6 band trap vertical antenna

High quality base antenna for HF and 6m, made in Japan.

The CP6 covers five popular HF bands as well as additionally covering the 6m band.

For DX work you need low angle radiation which is just what you get from this popular model. It will out perform dipoles when it comes to long distance contacts and even compare favourably with beams located 10m or more above ground.

Unlike other verticals you don't need long wire radials. With the CP6 you get adjustable rigid radials that are self supporting, and a DC return in the base matching unit helps the antenna get rid of static noise which other models suffer from.

You can adjust the antenna for each band, something you will have to do on 80m as the bandwidth is quite narrow.

The radials may be arranged in a 360 degree circle or 180 degree arc.

Frequency Bands 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6m
Max Power 200W
Length 4.6m
Radials 1.8m
Weight 4.9kg
Tubing 30-62mm

5 band vertical antenna

The MA5V is Cushcraft's restricted space HF vertical antenna. It covers 5 HF bands, from 10m to 20m.

Power rating is an excellent 250W (SSB) and with a VSWR of 1.2:1 with usable bandwidths on each band.

The antenna does not require radials and is the perfect choice for patios, back-yards and small gardens. It can be quickly dismantled and stored if necessary.

The MA5V can be upgraded to also cover 6m with the addition of the MA5V6M 6m add-on kit, priced at £49.95.

    Gain-Master Hi-Tech Fibreglass Base Station Antenna for CB & 10m Band.

    Gain-Master™ is a 5/8λ high tech fibreglass base station antenna for CB and 10m amateur band completely designed by electromagnetic simulation to achieve the maximum gain and optimize the radiation pattern and bandwidth.

    Engineered with the most advanced available technologies it is completely manufactured in Italy with high quality materials.
    The new design of the radiant element (Patent Pending) works like a central fed dipole so all RF currents on the radiator are in-phase and the ground plane radials are not necessary.
    The coaxial coil at the bottom works like RF-choke for the optimum decoupling from mast and feeding line.
    Made of telescopic fibreglass tubes, it is DC-grounded for the best protection from static discharges.

    Gain-Master™ is the new reference standard in its class of antennas.
