Works great for Dipoles, Inverted Vees, End Feed and Random Wire antennas! Bring your Shortwave receiver to life by making a good antenna.
Use these to insulate the ends of your wires making up your ground plane on elevated vertical antennas.
Made from ABS Copolymer with a 20% Glass Fill. Green (Olive Drab)
color. The color and design hides well in trees and against common roof
colors. Perfect for hiding from the nosey neighbors or home owners
Handles Full Legal Power - These are NOT the cheapies from China that have lots of RF leakage!
Insulators are approximately 2-1/32" from outside ear to ear with the
diameter about 1-1/2" edge to edge. Deep ribbed construction of the end
insulator provides increased surface path to reduce RF leakage.
Keep some of these insulators, a roll of light weight wire, and some
coax cable together and you are all set to make a handy antenna for
emergency operations, in a time of need for bugging out for your ham rig
or shortwave receiver, or as a camping antenna. Perfect for bug out
bags and shelters with the super light weight design and small size.
Keep some in the camper or RV with some wire and use them for temporary
antennas when parked or camping.
The formula for building dipole antennas is 468/Freq (in MHz) and then
divide by 2 to get each leg length, ie: for 40 meters it would be
something like 468/7.050 for 66.38ft/2 = 33.2 feet per leg. For a
Inverted Vee antenna deduct about 5% from each leg's length.
