17 South Ridge Trail
Cartersville GA 30120
Operating bands 6, 10, 12, 17, 20, 40 & 80 meters without a tuner.
Bandwidth 10m - 2000kHz, 20m - 500kHz, 40m - 400kHz, 80m 200kHz typical, (VSWR < 2.0:1)
Max Operating power 5000W PEP 3000W CW continuous
Typical impedance 40 ohm - 60 ohm (depending on installation height and configuration)
Gain 0.0 to 6 dBd
Effective Gain 12 dBi Typical (when mounted at 1 wavelength height)
VSWR 1.5:1 (typical)
Total length Dipole 133 feet.
OCF-3K80 Multi-Band Dipole
The OCF-3K80 dipole will work well on the 80, 40 ,20, 17,12,10 and 6 meter ham bands with no need for tuning.
The antenna can be mounted as a dipole or inverted vee. It is complete, cut, tuned, and ready to hang.
The OCF-3K40 is complete with a 4 to 1 -- 3000 Watt continuous duty Balun. It can be fed with standard 50 ohm coax . It is 133 feet long. 45 feet on one Leg and 88 feet on the other.
The antenna wire is composed of 2 conductors with 7 strands per side.
4 strands are copper and 3 strands are steel. The wire is rated at 200 lbs tensile strength.
This wire will not kink and is very easy to handle.
The Center insulator is made of quality schedule 40 PVC and Quality zinc plate eyebolts
For the size, weight and cost, I simply do not think there is a better performing antenna when the user is limited to a single or wire type antenna. Multi-band, high performance with utmost simplicity and ease of use. You will not be disappointed.
Antenna wire soldered directly to Balun through moisture sealed holes. This elminates the possibility of loose hardware or corroded connections causing SWR problems
