AM Radio Antenna
Model AN2X Enhanced Efficiency Whip Design; up to 100 Watts
 
 

Our AN2X Antenna may be mounted atop a square or round pole of wood, metal or fiberglass. It can operate in conjunction with the Vertical Profile Antenna Support and Grounding System (VP.9000). It may also be building-installed on a flat roof using a ballasted stand with groundplane.It has a much longer basepipe and more efficiency than Model ANXX.
