1 Element Linear Loaded Dipole (Heavy Duty) – 40m

1 Element Linear Loaded Dipole (Heavy Duty) - 40m

A Single Element Linear Loaded Dipole Antenna for the 40m band

£550.00 — £600.00

New from 2011. A single element linear loaded dipole antenna for the 40m band from our new range of ‘Linear Loaded Antennas’ . Linear loading enables the antenna to be shorter than a full-sized model (in this case 75% of full size), but retains a performance fairly close to the full size model. An equivalent antenna with traps would be far less efficient. Normally for the 40m band, the full dipole length would be over 19.5m The Vortex design has leg lengths of only 7.5m each side (24.75 feet) so is ideal where space is limited or restricted.

The antenna is manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock with a heavy duty boom, the linear loaded designs uses the same high quality hardware and components found in other Vortex designs. The antenna includes Heavy Duty Element Brackets, Heavy Duty Stauff Group 6 Polyamide Element Clamps and comes complete with Stainless Steel Hardware. We also include Mastrant support guys and a support brace to reduce element sag. Support brace hardware includes 316 stainless steel marine grade fittings from S3i. Antenna is supplied with all hardware except boom to mast mount (see below).

All VORTEX Antennas can be shipped WITHOUT any boom to mast mounting plates. Select this option from the drop-down menu when purchasing. Other options include the choice of mounting plates and complete mounting solutions with U-Bolts and Brackets.
