Worlds Second Best Vertical Antenna . . .
Standing a tall 39 feet with full-size elements and rated at 5 KW, the AV-18JR Hygain HyTower-Jr is the worlds second best* performing vertical!

The HyTower-Jr has almost no losses -- your ground system determines your efficiency.
It is automatic band switching, fed with 50 Ohm coax and has low SWR over an exceptionally wide bandwidth with SWR less than 1.2 at resonance.
The main radiator is aircraft high strength, heavy walled, 2-inch aluminum tubing swedged at the top. Self-supporting in winds up to 40 MPH.
Mounts on 11/4 inch plumbers pipe. Heavy duty components will give you years of trouble-free operating pleasure.
Requires good ground system for optimum performance. UPS Shippable.
*The famous 53 foot Hy-gain HyTower is legendary. Its the premier, best performing vertical in the world -- bar none!
At less than half the price with nearly the same performance and based on the same principles, the HyTowerJr is the poor mans version of its father HyTower.
Of course, JuniorTM does not have its fathers rugged hot-dipped galvanized steel tower and construction!
