Redesigned for 2014, the 6-80 Meter Alpha Vertical is a fully water proof Portable Multi-Band system from Alpha Antenna that comes with a Field Bag, Tripod, Mast, Mil-Stick whip, Mount, and solid state Alpha Match for 6-80 Meters. This antenna system can be expanded for use on 2 Meters & 440 MHz with the "VHF/UHF Enhancement Kit". You can also choose to enhance the performance of all bands, while also lower the SWR on on 6 and 80 meters to less than 2.5:1, by adding the "Optional Counterpoise Kit".

OPTIONAL COUNTERPOISE KIT
Available at the bottom of this page is the optional "Counterpoise Kit" that will enhance the performance of the antenna by providing a balanced ground plain, which in most basic terms will put more of your radiated signal into the air by reflecting your signal skywards rather than allowing it to permiate the ground around the antenna. Additionally, adding the "Counterpoise Kit" enhances 40 & 80 meters, because the lower bands tend to lend their performance to the NVIS properties of an antenna system. By adding horizontal Counterpoise elements that are close to the ground, NVIS performance for 40 and 80 meters is enhanced.

OPTIONAL VHF/UHF ENHANCEMENT KIT
Also optionally available at the bottom of this page is the "VHF/UHF Enhancement Kit", with which you simply swap antenna elements and remove the Alpha Match for HF operations to use the antenna system on 2 Meters and 440 MHz. Included with this optional kit is a black element that will mount on the Optional SO239 and 24x3/8 stud also available below.

Included with your Alpha Vertical is a durable milstick whip. Also included is a tripod that stands approximately 6'6" high. This tripod is designed to be your counterpoise system, to which you can add the optional "Counterpoise Kit" listed below for even greater performance. The tripod includes a Mast Adapter where the Alpha Match will mount, plus a UHF connector that you simply attach your coax to.
