The 6-80 Meter Alpha Vertical Sr is a Portable Multi-Band Antenna 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" and to 160 Meters with the optional "HF Enhancement Kit" available below. 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 HF ENHANCEMENT KIT
Available at the bottom of this page is the optional "HF Enhancement Kit", which enhances band performance with a specific focus on increasing 40 & 80 meter performance while allowing you to tune 160 meters. The reason the "HF Enhancement Kit" enhances performance is because the lower bands tend to lend their performance to the NVIS properties of an antenna system. By adding horizontal elements that are close to the ground, NVIS performance for 40, 80, & 160 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 SO239 and 24x3/8 stud that comes with your original purchase of the Alpha Vertical Sr.

Included with your Alpha Vertical Sr is a durable milstick whip. Also included is a heavy-duty steel tripod made out of 1 1/4 inch diameter steel (standard mast size), which stands 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 standard mount where there is a UHF connector that you simply attach the included Alpha Match and then your coax.
