HF, two piece sectional whip, monopole, side feed, (transformer), mast mount, 5.4 m, 0.15-30 MHz

AR55M and AR55MT

The AR55M is an efficient fibreglass receiving antenna for MF, marine coastal and HF bands.  The AR55MT version is equipped with a transformer, which acts as a matching unit to the feeding cable.  The T modification is highly recommended when a long feeding cable is necessary or when the antenna is to be used for low frequencies.

This antenna can be supplied with protection against static discharges that can harm the receiver.
