HF vehicle whip, monopole, 3.8 m, 1.6 – 30 MHz
The HF1630CO is constructed for land mobile services in the HF Band 1.6 – 30 MHz. It consists of a fibreglass whip, base section and adaptor. The antenna is intended for use with radios that have a built-in antenna tuner with a coaxial output. Some of these tuners will only tune a capacitive load and requires a very short cable length. If so, the extra adaptor is placed close to the tuner and makes it possible to use quite a long cable. The whip is intended to be fixed in a deflected position when the vehicle is moving. A tie down loop eases fixing a rope when the antenna is deflected.
