MA-5B    More due soon!

The MA5B HF antenna offers 5 bands in a package small/portable enough to mount onto a mast of light weight.

A lightweight rotator will turn the assembly with ease. On 20m, 15m and 10m it functions as a 2 element beam. The active elements are at either end of the boom and comprise of radiator and reflector.

 This arrangement preserves the spacing between parasitic element and radiator. On the 18MHz and 24MHz band, the centre element acts as a simple dipole without gain. A balun is used with dual outputs for the two driven elements.

The brilliant concept gives superb efficiency in a very small space.
