HF Folded Dipole Antennas

HF Folded Dipole Antennas are made with stranded stainless steel wire. They may be used for permanent base or rear tactical situations.

Antennas 90 feet and shorter are able to self Support between two end poles, although greater wind/ice survivability is achieved with a three pole installation.

The 180 foot antenna must have a center support. You should use the FLDP CM center mount to attach any of these antennas to a center mast. The 90 foot antenna is the minimum length recommended to perform nighttime NVIS well. The 180 foot antenna has enhanced performance at the low end.
