A new antenna concept for combining extremely lightweight wire antennas with lightweight telescoping fiberglass poles, enabling rapid deployment of efficient antennas (within minutes) at heights previously unobtainable with a portable product.
Model 404-UL is an ultra lightweight asymmetrical dipole for operation on 7 or 8 shortwave bands.
It is constructed using very light, yet strong components. All hardware is stainless steel.
The antenna radiator is made from CQ-534 insulated multi-strand copper-clad steel wire with 1mm outer diameter, which has a very low wind load and weighs only 31 gram (!!) yet it still maintains a breaking strength of 10kg.
