Diamond WA-103 wideband folded dipole

The W-103 is a complete antenna built to professional standards. It is a Wide-band folded dipole ( the same type used by the Military for frequency hopping) and is designed to operate  from 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz continuously on receive and 7 - 28 MHz on transmit with SWR below 2:1 

For transmitting the antenna can be matched on any frequency down to 1:1 SWR with an external ATU - but on the Amateur bands this should not be needed.

This antenna is power rated at 150 watts PEP and can be installed in horizontal form (flat-top), in "V" inverted or inclined with the lower end fixed  to within 0.2m from the ground.

The W-103 is constructed from vinyl coated  #14 copper wire and has an intermediate insulator cover protected with epoxy resin..
