Trekking Antenna QRP, Wide Band Portable Antenna from 7 to 30 Mhz, to be used with antenna tuner, 200 W SSB/CW - 100 W Psk31/RTTY

This is a Special Version, to be used with Automatic Tuner equipped Elecraft KX2 - KX3 radios optimizing the effective radiated power!

It hase been tested only with the Elecraft radios, and i cannot guarantee that other radios, even if equipped with a tuner, will be able to use it.

This antenna is the Light Version, especially made for QRP (but it works perfectly up to 100 Watt SSB) and for SOTA activations.
Entirely made in Italy, with the highest quality components, combining the improved performance to a lower price due to lower transportation costs, duties and taxes which obviously does not apply to an Italian product!
Can be used even with an amplifier, e.g. Elecraft KXPA100!
Maximum power (real!) 100 Watts SSB or CW, and 50 watts PSK31 or RTTY

  •  The Transmatch has no moving parts and requires no power; the weight, in respect to the MK2 version, has been reduced from 820 grams to 300 grams.
  • We have maintained the same Universal Clamp, even if his weight is 340 grams, due to his universal fixing capabilities.
  • The counterpoise weight is 200 grams; it can be replace with a lighter wire, without the picket
