“Preserving and building upon the legacy of this premier portable HF antenna line, DX Engineering is now the manufacturer of TW Antennas!*
DX Engineering’s acquisition of the products and designs of these unique HF portable and stealthy antennas brings easy access and simplified ordering to this antenna line formerly known as Transworld.
DX Engineering TW Antenna 40 Meter Solo Explorer Packages include everything you need to go portable! The package is comprised of the basic antenna structure, the band box and an antenna stand. You supply the coax and your own powered transceiver. It’s a great antenna for portable Low-Band QRP!
Naturally stealthy, these compact HF vertical-dipole TW antennas feature a black powder-coat finish that is excellent for antenna use in HOAs. Use them where “CC & R” antenna restrictions preclude the installation of towers or easily-visible HF antennas. Simply unfold the DXE-TW-BAS-BLK Top and Bottom Sections, add your Band Box Center Post section, and place the antenna on the antenna stand and operate! No radials are needed with these 40-meter vertical dipoles!
Ideal for portable use, the lightweight Quadrastand, DXE-TW-AQ, lets you set up your DX Engineering HF Portable TW Antenna wherever you happen to be. Think about special operating events like Scouts Jamboree On-The-Air (JOTA), Field Day or even SOTA (Summits On-The-Air). For general camping and travel, a convenient and durable carrying case, DXE-TW-DXBAG, is OPTIONALLY available to make transporting these antennas in your car or RV a snap!
Typical installation for TW Antennas is a compact 8.25 ft. tall and only 5 ft. wide. Make your choice; portable, fixed or both, then equip yourself with the best compact vertical-dipole antenna available.
Note: Although a permanently-installed mount is available, DX Engineering TW Antenna band boxes are not waterproof. Do not leave your TW Antenna exposed to the elements.
Note: Whenever the DX Engineering “Documentation” tab is available, please look at the associated files for additional product information.
DX Engineering TW Antenna 40 Meter Solo Explorer Packages are here to help you enjoy working stealthy HF at home or… anywhere!”
