HF two-piece sectional whip, monopole, 8 m, 1.6-30 MHz


AT82D/D is a high quality fibreglass transmitting antenna mainly for maritime use in the MF and HF bands. The antenna is equivalent to the AT82D except that it is divided above the base. The main part of the antenna can then be removed without the use of tools. When the whip is removed a long wire antenna can be connected at the remaining part of the base.
