THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE 40M1C (coil loaded).
This simple antenna combines 15 years of design and field experience with CNC machined parts to become the worlds best rotatable, reduced size dipole. Everything we have learned about linear loaded dipoles and structural reliability has been designed into the 40M1L. We just stretched it a bit and broad banded it to cover at least 250 kHz or more. We also have added an option to make it a dipole on 17 meters as well. The center insulator is a solid 1-1/4 inch fiberglass rod. There is nothing here to weaken or break from the effects of sun, wind or ice loading.
The linear loading elements have been lifted slightly above the main element to eliminate the tension/compression problems of other designs. The linear loading also lifts the whole element slightly virtually eliminating droop. Newly designed shorting bars make assembly and adjustment easier and quicker. If desired, optimizing inside the 40 meter band is done with 1/2” tip adjustment. A Husky 1:1 balun delivers all your transmit power to the antenna with no feed line radiation or pickup.
