Model DX-OCF Off-Center-Fed 7 Band Antenna
75/80, 40, 20, 17, 12, & 10 meters, NO TUNER REQUIRED!
Unique Features of the Model DX-OCF Multiband Antenna
Unlike many antenna designs, the Model DX-OCF covers the ENTIRE 80/75 meter band with low SWRs. Its broad band design makes moving from band edge to band edge quick and easy. It also offers excellent DX performance across the ENTIRE 40, 20, 17, 12 and 10 meter bands, and the low end of 6 meters with low SWRs. No More Fiddling with Tuners. The unique broadband OFF-CENTER-FED (OCF) design makes this possible.
No external hardware to loosen or corrode. No external splices, connectors or soldering in the antenna wire. It survives severe weather environments with ease.The custom designed integral 6:1 balun is permanently potted in a special epoxy potting compound for moisture and corrosion free operation. It is internally crimped and hard soldered to a Teflon barrel high quality SO-239 coax connector. An integral PVC moisture drip ring around the connector shields and protects the coax connection. A heavy duty ¼ inch stainless lock nut eyebolt supports the center insulator/balun for your support rope. There is no other design like it.
The antenna is unique not only because of the extremely high quality engineering, design and construction, but also because the antenna wire is something you've probably never seen before and provides AMAZING severe weather performance. It is a flexible, 65 strand 12 Ga. PVC coated wire, with EVERY strand tinned to prevent corrosion. You can put this antenna up and forget it! It is actually inexpensive compared to having to replace other antennas after several winter storms.The antenna is custom designed for Alpha Delta by Buckmaster Antennas, and versions of it have been providing excellent DX performance for many, years. This antenna is the culmination of all the best design features of an OCF antenna.
