The 60M1FS is a Full-sized dipole with great versatility. It has been optimized both mechanically and electrically to be strong, but light as possible. When used as a rotatable dipole, it will easily outperform all fixed wire dipoles. It can also be used as a building block for future expansion to a 2 or 3 element beam antenna. The dipole can also be separated in half and used as phased 1/4 wave verticals. Element halves start with 3” diameter tubing and taper through 2”, 1-3/4”, 1-1/2”, 1-1/4”, 1”, 3/4” & 1/2” sections to the 3/8 tips. The 3” and 2” sections are separated by a rugged fiberglass insulator to allow for the linear loading (3/8” aluminum tubing). A solid 2” O.D. x 36” fiberglass rod, sleeved to the 3” elements, serves as the center insulator. Overhead support system is provided. Tip droop is typically 3-4 feet and looks better than some 40 meter elements. Let your imagination go wild. You may come up with something real different!
