The Macon OCF-5K75 is an off-center fed dipole that has been optimized for 75-meter SSB operation. A standard off-center fed dipole will have its resonant freq at about 3.5 MHz. The OFC-3K75 uses a coaxial capacitor on the long side of the antenna wire, to raise the resonant frequency to about 3.8 Mhz which is about the midpoint of the SSB portion of the band. All the other bands (40/20/17/12/10) are not affected. They will be resonant at the same frequency as the standard off-center fed dipole. This antenna is the same as our OCF-3K80 except for the 75-meter resonant frequency.
