The OCF-3K160 dipole is the same as our OCF3K80 but with an additional 160-meter coverage. It is designed for low to medium power levels. It will work well on the 160, 80, 40, 20, 17,12, and 10-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-3K160 is complete with a 4 to 1 Balun. It can be fed with standard 50-ohm coax. It is 266 feet long. 90 feet on one Leg and 176 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, and high power handling, with utmost simplicity and ease of use. You will not be disappointed
