|HF Vertical Antenna Mounting Position|
DX Engineering 40 meter Quarter Wave Fold-Over Vertical Antennas are freestanding high performance antennas. You get true full size efficiency with a low takeoff angle for maximum DX performance. Full bandwidth coverage means no tuning on 40 meters.
These multi-section vertical elements are built from super-strong 6063T-832 drawn (not extruded) aircraft aluminum for maximum wind rating. They feature a high strength, UV-resistant EXTREN® channel insulator that won't crack, peel, splinter, or fail and will support the 6063 drawn aluminum antenna radiator. It has over twice the tensile and flexural strength of competitive nylon plastic materials. EXTREN® is far superior for its RF handling characteristics.
With these antennas, you get full size vertical antenna performance that will cover the whole 40 meter band with less than 1.5 to 1 SWR.
Unlike other antennas with a fold-over mount where you pull one of two main bolts and let the antennas fall over, our heavy duty stainless steel fold-over mount allows for one-person safe raising/lowering of the vertical antennas.
If you have been looking for an easy and safe fold-over 40 meter antenna, then these DX Engineering 40 Meter Quarter Wave Fold-Over Vertical Antennas are what you have been looking for.
