MP-1: Portable antenna for 3.5 to 30MHz, plus 2m/70cm

MP-1The MP-1 is a universal antenna with 180cm length and max. 150 Watt power load. The center loading coil is adjusted with a sliding tap, just move the outer part of the coil up and down. The antenna has a 3/8" thread bolt for mobile use, suitable for the appropiate base mounts. For use while driving the telescopic part of the antenna should be by the available optional steel whip.
Without the center loading coil the antenna can be used on 2m and 70cm by adjusting the length of the telescope. The standard version covers all bands from 7 to 30MHz, for 80m operations an optional extension coil is available. With option UM-2 or TM-1 the antenna has a PL connector.

The antenna is available in four different versions:
MP-1B: Basic model, if an installation option is available. The pure antenna with 3/8" connector below.
MP-1D: Same as MP-1B, but with UM-2 bracket and simple radial kit.
MP-1T: Same as MP-1B, but with tripod TM-1 and simple radial kit.

HFV-8040 Compact Rotary Dipole for 80 and 40m
 Diamond HFV-8040 Skizze

The HFV-8040 is a compact rotary dipole for 80 and 40m, as usual built in the excellent manufacturing quality by Diamond. The antenna is designed as a shortened trap dipole with end capacities. Due to the precise aligment possibilities of the end capacities the minimum SWR position can be tuned very effectively to the required band portion. As with all shortened antennas the useable bandwidth is limited, you have to use a tuner or re-align the antenna. The useable bandwidth without tuner is approx. 25kHz on 80m and 40kHz on 40m.

The relativetly small packing size of only 170cm makes the HFV-8040 also suitable as a vacation antenna or for portable fieldday operations. Installed, the dipole elements are a little bit longer than 5m, the rotating radius is only 3.6m due to the V shaped installation. The weight of the antenna is 7kg, a balun BU-50 is included in the shipment (PL connector). The included mast clamp is suitable for masts from 38 to 60mm diameter.

ATAS-25 Portable antenna

Bild ATAS-25Frequency range: 7/14/21/28/50/144/430MHz, Max Pwr input: HF/50MHz: 100W (SSB/CW), 50W (AM/FM), 144/430MHz: 50W (All mode) Height Max 2.2m, 0.6m for transporting * Weight: 930g. Supplied with radiating elements, radial elements for VHF/UHF, radial wires + spare radial wire, Allen key.

The ATAS-25 utilises a manual tuning system which resonates the radiating element for lowest SWR without the need for expensive mono-band resonating whip assemblies. It allows dual frequency operation on HF or 50MHz and either 2m or 70cm (duplexer not supplied). A very handy feature is that the ATAS-25 is designed to mount directly onto a standard camera tripod mount (not supplied) and makes up a portable antenna system ideal for tempory field operation but not recommended for long-term outdoor installation.

For some models, you may wish to purchase a diplexer or triplexer to avoid moving your cable from one antenna jack to another. When using the ATAS-25 with the FT-817, set Menu #07 to REAR for all bands.
