A Dipole Antenna for the 6m band from the Vortex Antennas
‘Lightweight’ range. Manufactured from lightweight but extremely strong construction grade 6082-T6 Aluminium stock, this antenna is an excellent balance between weight and strength. Dipoles are an excellent ‘Starter’ antenna for users wishing to get familiar with any new band. They also have a very wide bandwidth and a typical 6m dipole will easily cover the whole of the band at an SWR of no more than 1.5 to 1, often less. Set-up is very straightforward and all Vortex antennas are supplied with full set-up data to get you up and running quickly.

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.
