80 TO 6 METERS END-FED ANTENNA
The Ultimax-100 antenna is designed with the H.O.A., limited space amateur and rapid deployment operator in mind. It provides for all-band operation from 80 through 6 meters continuously with just the use of an antenna tuner.
The Ultimax-100 consists of a robust matching network which can handle 1500W P.E.P. SSB and 500W CW. The heavy duty construction but light weight of the matching network accompanied with the 24', #14 AWG, super flexible radiator wire are designed for the harsh and punishing demands of maritime mobile use. The quality material in the Ultimax-100 makes it completely weatherproof. The Ultimax-100 can be mounted vertically, horizontally, or sloped. There's no need to waste operating time reading through thick manuals: Once the antenna is mounted simply connect the coax and you're on the air. The Ultimax-100 antenna is truly a plug-and-play antenna which will serve the needs of the most experienced ham operator and those new to the hobby on land or at sea. A typical installation takes about 15 minutes.
IMPORTANT: To maximize the efficiency of the Ultimax-100, use a simple coil choke balun at the feed point (5 turns at 6" diameter coax) or a line isolator. As always, keep all parts of your antennas away from metal structures whenever possible and power lines.
