HF 8 band Fan dipole multiband antenna 160-6 meters with Balun
The 5 element fan dipole works very well at covering all the bands 160-6 meters.
We cut the element for the lower frequency and let it serve double duty at the odd harmonic, thus enabling greater band coverage. ie. 80/30, 40/15 meters.
You can pick your resonant frequency on each of the 5 elements. 160/80/40/20/10.
Antenna will be custom made for you.
Since this antenna has no exposed metal wire static charges can not build up thus reducing noise by 6dB over antennas constructed of exposed wire.
The W2AU is the preferred Balun of Amateurs worldwide. W2AU’s operate at a low VSWR from 1.8 to 40 mHz, and handle powers up to 2 KW PEP (at SWRs of less than 3:1). W2AU Baluns are transformer designs with ferrite cores to provide 95% minimum coupling efficiency. Each has a built-in lightning arrestor, hang up hook, and 600 lbs of pull-apart strength in a weatherized, rugged package using only stainless steel hardware and quality materials. The 1:1 matches 50(75) ohms unbalanced coax to 50(75) balanced dipoles.
14 gauge stranded coated wire.
This antenna can be hung either in a Flat-Top or Inverted V configuration.
Total length 265′.
Add your 50 Ohm coaxial feed line, suspension rope and go.
NOTE *** A wide range tuner can be used to tune this antenna to 160-6 meters
