  • Frequency Range: 530-1710 kHz.
  • Impedance: 50 ohms (typical).
  • Mounting Format: Self-Supporting at ground level or on optional 4’ tower platform.
  • Type: 3- or 4-section, center-loaded, bottom-fed vertical, whip-type antenna with capacitive top hat. Omni directional. Brass construction with painted epoxy exterior.
  • Radiation Efficiency Range: varies with frequency, antenna style and groundplane construction. (*)
  • Temperature endurance: -76F to +140F.
  • Wind endurance: greater than 180 MPH.
  • Weight of the complete antenna varies with frequency. 400 lbs nominal.
  • Length: 35'-85'; standing height not including tower; antenna length varies with frequency. (*)
  • Recommended separation from buildings and structures: 100’ or 2X height of the structure, whichever is greater.
