MFJ-2016, WIRE ANT, 75/160M, OCFD, 1500 WATTS
Power-Lite™ for 160 and 75 Meters, handles maximum legal limit 1500 Watts CW/SSB. Covers the low end of 160 Meters plus delivers 9-dBi gain in the 75 Meter SSB DX window. Heavy duty components, rugged construction. 240 ft.
Engineered from the ground up, innovative new antennas by K1BQT break traditional OCFD design barriers to deliver wider bandwidth, lower SWR, solid gain, and full-frequency agility without a tuner!
How good are they? W4ILV bought an MFJ-2012 and wrote EHAM, . . . the best wire antenna Ive ever used! We think youll agree, and heres why:
Highest Efficiency: Full-sized radiator with MatchmakerTM feed block that tests over 98-percent efficient. All your power gets radiated!
Best Match: NEC-modeled element delivers the same feed-point impedance on every band. Innovative new transformer designs yield exact ratio needed for a great match.
Super Balun: OCFDs need good baluns to block feedline radiation. Built-in bifilar-wound Guanella current-choke has over 30 dB of common-mode rejection on all bands. Kills pattern irregularities, RFI, noise.
Real Gain: Delivers a 6-dBi ground-rein-forced dipole pattern on the fundamental and a 9-dBi full-wave cloverleaf on the second harmonic. You get an amazing (up to) 11.5 dBi peak gain on higher bands.
Height Compensation: Element feedpoints are compensated for typical mounting height, so you always get lowest possible SWR on all bands!
Frequency Compensation: Normally, a OCFD cut for 3.85 MHz resonates on 7.7 MHz. Ourunique OCFD design resonates mid-band on both 75/40!
Built to Last: UV-resistant marine-ABS feedblocks, stainless hardware, and Teflon® SO-238 connector ensure maximum protection from the environment.
Easy-to-Install: Installs in flat-top or inverted-Vset-up, feedblock has attachment points for tower or tree support. Suggested height is 35-70 feet.
Low Cost: Outperforms multi-band vertical antennas by a wide margin for an unbelievable fraction of the cost!
