HF base station loop antenna, NVIS, 2.5 m, diameter, 1.6-30 MHz

The HF230L-B is a compact HF antenna for rapid deployment to create a base station working from 1.6 to 30 MHz.  It is designed to provide superior Near Vertical Incident Skywave (NVIS) performance at distances from 0 to 500 km and allows continuous communications in ground wave, NVIS and skywave applications.

The communications characteristics of the antenna are similar to a wire antenna mounted on a 10 m mast.

The HF230L-B is a direct replacement for existing mast mounted HF base station antennas with the important advantage of only requiring a fraction of the time and space to install.  The mounting of the system only takes a few minutes and requires no special installation equipment.

This new generation HF antenna is difficult to detect because of its small size and, most importantly, it reduces co-site interference with other HF and all VHF / UHF whip antennas.
