Trapped Dipole Antenna
The Hilomast Trapped Wire Dipole Antenna is a compact and simply operated multi-frequency antenna, designed to provide up to 6 spot frequencies, (dependent upon channel spacing) with bi- or omnidirectional coverage in the HF band. The antenna may be used as shown, with two support units (preferred method) or more economically using a single support structure.
The construction reflects Hilomast LLC’s policy of ensuring long trouble free use, utilising only best quality components. Each antenna is supplied complete with 30m of low loss coaxial feeder incorporating a strain relief arrangement, and fitted with one PL259 UHF connector. The Dipole Center Junction is formed by a balun unit to ensure matching is achieved.
The elements are constructed of hard drawn copper magnesium multi-strand for durability and high resistance to corrosion.
