Works great for Dipoles, Inverted Vees, Loops, End Fed and Random Wire antennas!
are great pulleys for your antennas! The split mounting is great for
running your antenna wire into the pulley. Simply open the mount and
place the wire onto the wheel. No more pulling the entire length of wire
through the pulley (see the last pic).
The sheave (wheel) is
nylon with fiberglass reinforcement, it has a nice edge and groove. Use
one at each corner of your loop to equalize the span pulls and sags.
Helps to prevent wear on your antenna wire by allowing the spans to move
as they shrink and expand.
For dipoles these work great for the
center support pulley either on a pipe or mast or the side of your
tower. Run a hoist rope or line through the pulley and raise and lower
the dipole center without fuss and climbing. I use one of these here at
my QTH for my multi-band dipole center support and it works great.
you are using trees or other things that can move in the wind for the
end supports on your dipoles or other wire antennas, these work great
for the end support to place the counter weight. When the wind blows and
the tree moves, the wire moves easy in the pulley which helps minimize
wire breakage and insulator breaks.
If you are using a cloth or
cord for the pulley support, I would suggest a inexpensive carabiner to
prevent damage to the cord by the pulley mounts.
Intended only for
wire antenna supports - these are not rated nor intended for overhead
load support or to support a person. Always use caution with things
above your head!
