Antennas at G6EJD

The main station antenna is an HF vertical dipole the HUSTLER 6-BTV with the 17M and 12M ‘add-ons’ so it covers 80M, 40M, 30M, 20M, 17M, 15M, 12M and 10M (3.5MHz to 30Mhz) bands making it effectively an 8-BTV.

The multi-band antenna from Hustler will easily handle full legal limit power on SSB and CW. It is built to last using thick walled heavy duty aluminium with extra heavy duty aluminium mounting brackets. Its uniquely designed traps offer the lowest possible loss and can be fine tuned for best SWR if required. With a vertical height of 7.3M it can be safely mounted where other verticals cannot. Radials are optional if the antenna is ground mounted but required if an elevated mount is used. Performance is as solid as its construction.

* 6 Bands: 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 80m
* VSWR 1.6:1 or better 10-40m
* Bandwidth up to 100kHz on 80m
* Power: 1kW
* Feed: 50 Ohms
* Solid 25.4mm traps
* Feed with any length 50 Ohm coax
* Heavy duty aluminium mounting bracket
* Solid 25.4mm (1in) fibreglass trap formers
* Use as ground mount with or without radials
* Use with radials on elevated mount
* Size: 7.3m (24ft)
* Weight: 7.5kg
