Butternut HF9V Vertical Antennas work nine popular bands--80 through 6 meters--with an extremely efficient vertical radiator that's only 26 ft. tall! The HF9V antennas are easy to erect and tune antennas that will last you for many years.

An internationally acclaimed antenna design, Butternut HF9V antennas require a radial system or a roof mounting kit. The antenna comes with a 1-1/8 in. base insulator and a 1-1/4 in. OD x 2 ft. mounting tube for direct placement into the earth or mounting into a standard steel TV mast.

The preferred, 'easiest-to-tune' high-performance installation is the ground mounted HF9V, which requires a bare minimum of 12 evenly spread, straight radial wires. Many more is better, with double the number of evenly spread radials achieving nearly double the efficiency and signal performance, an effect that tops out at about 60 ground radials. Each radial wire stapled onto the ground or run an inch or so below the soil surface, may be any length from 20 to 45 ft. Radial wires need to be up to 50% longer over sandy and rocky soil to maintain efficiency. Conversely, the elevated-mount HF9V requires three or four resonant length radials per band. The RMK-II Roof Mounting Kit includes the STR-II stub-tuned radials for 40-10 meters, but requires separate full length radials for 80 and 30 meters. An elevated mount HF9V is a more difficult installation for tuning and supporting the antenna and the end of each radial wire, but the results can be excellent.

Want to hear and work the stations that other operators seem to be working easily? Enjoy advanced operations on the HF bands with a high performance vertical antenna installation. Have more fun DXing with great signals on your Butternut HF9V 9-Band Vertical Antenna.

Great vertical antenna

BUT-HF9V
I have a small suburban lot with HOA restrictions and closely spaced homes. The vertical antenna fits my needs. It took me 4 hours to assemble it. The instructions were clearly written and well-illustrated. It is tricky to tune; I found the task much easier when I used an antenna analyzer. The antenna is as rugged as naval artillery! I only had room for 24 radials - some of which were short. All of 10, 12, 15, 20, and 30 meter bands could be tuned to an SWR<2.0. I can use all of the 40 meter band with a transmatch, and about half of that band without one (SWR<2.0). I was only able to tune the 17 meter band to a minimum SWR of 2.2, but all of that band is usable with a transmatch. A few MHz of 6 meters was available without tuning and a 47 KHz section of 80 meters was available with SWR<2.0, with a high Q. Signal reports have been favorable from around the world on CW, SSB, and PSK31. My environment presents me a lot of QRN and vertical antennas tend to be "noisy" anyway. I've had to use strategies to mitigate this issue, but I absolutely recommend this antenna and feel its price was commensurate with its quality and value. I would buy it again.
