Radix 2 element telescoping dipole / V HF antennas. These antennas are available in 40, 20, 15, 10 and 6 meter models. They consist of one or more telescoping sections of aluminum tubing mounted to a plate which is mounted to a pole or mast. The lower frequency antennas (40m, 20m) have loading coils while the higher frequency antennas are just the aluminum tube. The centeral mount allows the antenna elements to swing from horizontal dipole mode up to a 90 degree "V" configuration. The center mount also has a small balun.
The two top elements are the 40 meter pair, the lower pair are the 10/15
meter pair. For 10/15 meters, you can just slide the elements in
and out to change bands.
Here is the mounting plate assembly. The antenna elements slip
on the the ends of the insulated mounts and the antennas have a threaded
ring that screws the antenna element to the mount.
Folded for transport.
