The 6-80 Meter Alpha Vertical is a balanced center-fed vertical dipole that is weatherproof. This system comes with a Field Bag, Tripod, Mast, Mil-Stick whip, Tripod Adapter, and solid state Alpha Match. When deplpoyed with the items in the base configurations, the Alpha Vertical delivers SWRs are less than 2.5:1, where it can be used without a tuner on 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, & 40 meters. You you may then use a broad band tuner to achieve a perfect SWR match of 1:1 on 10-80 Meters. You may also choose to enhance the performance of all bands, while also lowering the SWR on on 6 and 80 meters to less than 2.5:1, by adding the "Optional Counterpoise Kit". The Counterpoise Kit also serves to guy the antenna system for increased stabilization in light to moderate winds.
OPTIONAL COUNTERPOISE KIT
The optional "Counterpoise Kit"
available by clicking HERE will enhance performance of the antenna by providing an enhanced 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 NVIS KIT
An optional "NVIS Kit" is also available
available by clicking HERE, which will enhance performance on all HF frequencies and enables increased NVIS on the bands that very much depend on horizontally positioned active elements (40 & 80 meters).
Included with your Alpha Vertical is the 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. Your coax attaches to a UHF SO239 connector on the Alpha Match.
