This revolutionary antenna consists of 6 trapless monoband logs on a single 30’ boom and 13 full size elements. Computer optimization gives full monoband gain and front-to-back ratio on every band.
Exceptional flat in-band impedance eliminates transmitter re-tuning. Operate six bands: 20, 17, 15, 12, 10 and 6 Meters with a single direct 50 Ohm feed. Easily handles far more than the full legal power limit.
No 4:1 balun, no matching devices, no traps, no coils — super low losses. At least 3 full size elements are active on each band. 24 ft. turning radius, 30 ft. boom, 36 ft. longest element. 160 lbs.
Operate 6 bands simultaneously. Perfect for multiband SDR receivers. BOLP-1011, $2999, like BOLP-1013 but 6M is replaced by an extra 10M element giving enhanced gain and front-to-back ratio on 10/12M.
