C3 Force12

mq-2.jpg (9597 bytes)

The C-3 is 7 elements on an 18' boom with a single feedline: direct 50 ohm coax. All that is needed is a 1:1 balun or RF choke and you are on the air. Three monoband yagis for 20, 15 and 10 mtrs are the core of the antenna. The driver cell is a FORCE 12 multiband open sleeve, with the coax attached directly to the 20 meter element. The 15 and 10 mtr drivers are parasitically excited. All 7 elements in the antenna work together for great performance. The C-3 has gain on 17 and 12 mtrs without specific elements for these bands. A tuner is needed to match the VSWR on 17 and 12, as they are not matched to 50 ohms. The C-3 comes in a 4' box, ideal for DXpeditions.

C-4XL Force12

mq-2.jpg (9597 bytes)

To enable having gain on all bands from 40 meters through 10 meters on a single boom, the C-3 has been enhanced with a 2 element 40 meter yagi using 37' elements to make the C-4XL. The front 40 meter element is the driver and it is placed within the reflector section of the C-3 (similar to the C-4 design). The boom is extended 12' for placement of the 40 reflector aft of the core C-3. The resulting 30' boom C-4XL antenna is the answer to covering all of these bands with a single boom. Two feedlines and baluns complete this great package.


WARC-7 Force12

mq-2.jpg (9597 bytes)

The WARC-7 is the world's first Yagi for the 30, 17 and 12 mtr WARC bands, featuring multi-monoband design and a single feedline. First used by K7K on the recent Kure Island DXpedition.

  • 30 mtrs: 2 elements using linear loading for maximum efficiency on shortened elements
  • 17 mtrs: 2 elements
  • 12 mtrs: 3 elements
The three individual Yagis are arranged on a common boom using the Force 12 forward stagger design. The three driven elements share a common feedline and feature the Force 12 closed sleeve feed system (patent in process).
  • Forward gain (compared to a fullsize dipole at the same height):
    • 30 mtrs 4.1 dBd
    • 17 mtrs 4.2 dBd
    • 12 mtrs 5.0 dBd
  • Front to back ratio:
    • 30 mtrs 14 dB
    • 17 mtrs 12 dB
    • 12 mtrs 20 dB
  • VSWR: 30, 17 and 12 mtrs: <1.4 across the band
  • Boom length: 15.5 feet
  • Turning radius: 20.2 feet
  • Longest element: 34 feet
  • Weight: 36 pounds
  • Windload: 5.8 sq. ft.
  • Mast torque at 70 mph: <150 inch pounds
  • Wind survival rating: 85 mph (higher ratings available)

CB-80 Radio Works

cb-80.jpg (10226 bytes)

The Carolina Beam 80 is part Carolina Windom and part Bobtail Curtain (sometimes called a ¡®half square¡¯). It takes advantage of the best characteristics of both antennas. The Carolina Beam has three vertical radiators directly interconnected by the single horizontal radiator. It is this unique integration of horizontal and vertical radiation components that accounts for the outstanding performance of this antenna system. Another great advantage is its short length, only 30.4m (100ft) long.

CB-40 Radio Works

cb-40.jpg (10432 bytes)

The Carolina Beam 40 has three vertical radiators properly spaced out to produce low-angle, beam like performance. The horizontal portion of the antenna interconnects the three vertical sections and acts as both a feed system and a radiating counterpoise. The result is a multi-element inverted-vertical antenna that operates high in the air, free of ground losses. It is a very efficient antenna. The overal length of the Carolina Beam 40 is only 15.25m (50ft.) easily placed in most small gardens.

CW-160 Radio Works

cw-160.jpg (7431 bytes)

Carolina Windom 160. The ideal all-band antenna that gives DX performance on the low frequency bands. Optimum coax feeder length is 21.3m (70ft) or 50m (166ft) (if using an internal ATU). Can also be used as an inverted V or a sloper. Gain as high as 10dBd is achieved on some bands. 160m and 80m DX operators have reported excellent results. The offset feeder often avoids the coax having to drop down in the centre of the garden. If using as an inverted V, it is best to support the antenna at the centre, leaving the vertical radiator in the clear.

CW-80 Radio Works

cw-80.jpg (7310 bytes)

Carolina Windom 80. The size of this antenna makes it ideal for many gardens and its DX potential will ad at least an S-point to your signal on most occasions. The secret is in the vertical section which offers excellent low angle radiation. But short-haul contacts will be boosted. As the antenna covers all bands it can be used as the main system and it works equally well as inverted V or sloper. The offset feed system makes the domestic installation that much more convenient.

CW-40 Radio Works

cw-40.jpg (7206 bytes)

Carolina Windom 40. Covering six bands, yet only requiring 20.1m (66ft) of space, this antenna is one of our most popular models. The vertical section offers excellent low angle radiation and offers some useful DX opportunities for a remarkably low outlay. If you use an internal ATU, it is recommended you feed the antenna with 86ft of coax. If you have been using something like a G5RV you will be really impressed with the improvement, particularly on 10m and 15m bands. And remember, these are the bands that are likely to offers the best DX as we progress into the new sunspot cycle.

CW-20 Radio Works

cw-20.jpg (7234 bytes)

Carolina Windom 20. With the new Carolina Windom 20 the size comes down to a very easily accommodated 10.36m (34ft) and yet you get 5-band coverage. It has an ideal radiation pattern and an unusually low angle of radiation, making a true backyard DX antenna. The absence of traps and the 1.5kW power rating means you have no chance of damaging the antenna, even with big linears. On all bands above 20m it will leave the G5RV standing! Most internal ATUs will have no trouble in matching this antenna.

CWS-160 Radio Works

cws160.jpg (8222 bytes)

Carolina Windom 160 Special. The 160m amateur radio band is enjoying a resurgence of activity and the DX opportunities are better than ever before. But until now, installing an efficient dipole meant having a lot of garden space. The carolina Windom 160 Special halves the the space needed and at the same time offers a superb all-band radiating system. The secret is in the Dedicated matching Unit (DMU) which efficiently transfers power to the 160m quarter wave radiator. The vertical section helps with both local and DX contacts. For correct operation you will also need an external ATU as most in-built transceiver models will not have the required capacity.

CWS-80 Radio Works

cws80.jpg (7994 bytes)

Carolina Windom 80 Special. Surely the answer to many hams antenna problem, a design that fits into the average garden yet covers all the popular HF bands. Because the radiator is only a quarter wave on 80m, your signal will be about 4dB down on this band (less than 1 S-point), but as signals are generally strong on this band, the difference is more than acceptable in order to fit the antenna in to the limited space. On the other bands, 40m - 10m, you will enjoy full Carolina Windom performance. Also note that with this model you will need an external ATU as internal transceiver ATUs generally will not have the adjustment capacity.

SL-80 Radio Works

sl-80.jpg (9628 bytes)

The SuperLoop 80 is a high performance, full size, full wave, 80m loop antenna. On 40m it is a 2x wave length open loop or Bi-Square. The stub in the top leg of the antenna opens the loop when operating on 40m and selected other bands. This improves the antenna¡¯s radiation pattern. Its gain is around 4dB, but it will seem a lot higher due to its excellent, low angle, radiation pattern. The overall length of the SuperLoop 80 is 34m (112ft) with the HD ladder line switching stup 9m (30ft). The 50 Ohm coax from the dedicated matching unit to transmatch is not critical but recommended to be 1/2 wave length. Coax not supplied with antenna.

SL-40 Radio Works

sl-40.jpg (12719 bytes)

The SuperLoop 40 uses the same outstanding technology as the SuperLoop 80. This is a high performance, full size, full wave, 40m loop antenna. On 20m it is a 2x wave length open loop or Bi-Square. The stub in the top leg of the antenna opens the loop when operating on 20m and selected other bands. This improves the antenna¡¯s radiation pattern. In theory its gain is about 2dB on 40m and around 4dB on 20m, but it is actually much higher due to the highly compressed low angle radiation pattern. The dedicated matching unit, along with all the other components in the antenna work together to provide a well-managed SWR on all bands.
Coax not supplied with antenna.


80-PLUS-2 Watson

80plus2.jpg (5746 bytes)

The G3OJV 80-Plus-2 is a 3-band compact antenna covering 80m, 40m and 20m. It has a length of just over 15.24m (50ft) but if erected as an inverted V or installed with its ends dropped down, it could be accommodated in around 12m (40ft) of space. The design uses low loss linear loading and can be operated without an ATU as the VSWR at resonance is below 1.5:1. Input is SO-239 via a balun match. Power rating is 600W and the bandwidth at 2:1 VSWR is: 20m 350kHz, 40m 90kHz, 80m 80kHz. With an internal ATU, operation is possible across most of 80m. On the two lower bands, the resonant point can be adjusted when finally assembling the elements. Offered in semi-kit form, you will need to make 4 solder connections, and attach the end insulators. Assembly time is around 45 minutes. Final adjustment requires a VSWR meter to achieve precise resonant points desired on 40m and 80m.

HIGHLANDER TALKABOUT

The Highlander Mobile Antenna covers all the amateur radio bands from 80 to 6m (including the WARC bands). Max power rating 300W. It is constructed of tapered fibre glass rod, with a copper winding covered in epoxy resin. Great attention has been given to the antenna and it is totally weatherproof. The antenna is bandswitched by means of taps along the helical wind. On 80m the entire 1.67m (5ft 6in) antenna is used. For the other bands, the supplied connecting lead with banana plugs needs to be used. Fine tuning is achieved by adjusting the short tuning rod at the top of the antenna. The antenna is fitted with a standard 3/8in base for mounting either on the vehicle or on a suitable mag-mount such as the WMM-3401-38.
