Once installed, the MA8040V virtually disappears against a backdrop of trees and foliage. Parallel resonators use a combination of inductive and capacitive top loading to deliver automatic band switching, high efficiency, and rock-bottom SWR on both bands. Designed to handle maximum legal power and built to last year after year, it’s the perfect DX solution when the sunspots silence the higher bands.
