Are you looking for a CB base antenna for a size restricted space. This antenna is only 20 inches tall. The revolutionary COMPACtenna CB/2M/440 uses a patented design which includes magnetic-field-enhancement. This allows the extremely short antenna to perform amazingly well for its height. Coverage includes all CB channels plus it can used on the 2 meter and 440 MHz amateur bands! Power capacity is 100 Watts CB, 85 Watts 2m and 50 Watts 440. This break-through antenna was designed by Dr. Jack Nilsson N8NDL and offers superior performance on CB plus two popular amateur bands.
This antenna employs a unique magnetic field resonator (for less receiver noise), and features Electric/Magnetic Field Diversity Science & Technology design. This provides superior performance in non-line-of-sight obstructed environments, such as buildings, hills, in valley location, and indoor installations. This technology provides for a unique low-cost easy installation base station antenna in an attic as well as a variety of limited-space locations.
The CB/2M/440 antenna require a 3/8"-24 mount not included (see below). This antenna may be used successfully with a very small ground plane. A simple 3/8x24 magnetic mount can be set on a 36 by 48 inch galvanized metal plate (available from Home Depot) or even a metal table! The result is a compact, yet effective antenna for a variety of applications.
Mounting the antenna to a small flat metal sheet or mesh that is only 3 feet by 3 feet provides good (V)SWR’s and performance.
(V)SWR: Nominal: < 2:1 27 - 27.4 MHz (CB 11 Meter Band); 144-148 MHz (2 Meter Band); 420-450 MHz (440 Band)
One year limited mfg. warranty. Each antenna is quality tested. Made in the U.S.A. _
