Beverage antenna notes
By popular demand, Flag antenna transformer kb-5 now for Pennant and Delta receiving antennas.
A Beverage antenna transformer, from Clark Electronics, is what you need to utilize your Beverage antenna to its full
potential! These transformers are specifically designed for the
needs of the Beverage antenna. They are proven effective in their
design and craftsmanship by stations all over the world in a variety
of climates and conditions!
What is so special about our Beverage antenna transformers?
Both KB-1 and KB-2 models include:
KB-1 ($60.00 with BN-202-73 core* plus shipping)
A 450 ohm single wire Beverage transformer uses a binocular ferrite wound core and has a low VSWR into matched loads. Also available for 150 to 700 ohm antenna impedances.Check out a lower impedance KB-1 for your BOG antenna.
KB-2 ($120.00* plus shipping) Combination price KB-2, KB-3 $150.00* plus shipping.
The KB-2 uses custom winding for best impedance match possible!
Designed to match your Beverage wire size, wire spacing, and height above earth.
Features of the KB-2:
- Dual direction two wire Beverage transformer has high efficiency.
- Available 150 to 700 ohm antenna impedances for the antenna wire that is best for your QTH and pocketbook.
- This system is designed to work with two wire Beverage antennas.
- T1 binocular wound winding is accurately center tapped for
optimum isolation between the two directions. (The output is wound for 50 or 75 ohms and electrically isolated.)
- T2 uses a binocular wound input winding and a electrically isolated 50 or 75 ohm output winding.
- A two wire Beverage sketch is enclosed with each transformer.
- Two SO-239, BNC, or F connectors for coaxial lines to your radio. Termination of the un-used coax is not necessary for good results.
- Two wire switchable Beverages are described in popular antenna books.

KB-3 End Termination Transformer !!
- For use with all two wire, two direction Beverage antennas!
- Wound to the impedance of your antenna for maximum signal recovery.
- The same quality construction as found in the KB-1 & KB-2.
- Transformers are housed in attractive, rugged plastic project type boxes.
- Wing nut connections for Beverage wires and ground connection.
- Rust proof hardware (stainless steel).
- Designed to maximize your front to back gain !
