Frequency Band: 6 / 10 / 12 / 15 / 17 / 20 / 30 / 40 m
Gain: 3 dBi
Type: HF Vertical
|Cushcraft is pleased to announce the introduction of it's newest multiband HF vertical antenna, the R8. The most contemporary of multiband vertical designs provides 8 band coverage encompassing the 6, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30 and 40 meter bands.
Cushcraft has achieved a major breakthrough in the development of an HF multiband vertical antenna that has been specifically designed for use with a tuner and amplifier. As a result, the antenna more accurately addresses the needs of the contemporary ham shack.
The R8 is the first multiband vertical designed for the rigors of contemporary operating conditions. Although the antenna is best operated within it's 2.0:1 VSWR bandwidth, it can sustain a 3.0:1 VSWR mismatch at full power for typical operating intervals. Now the ham can take full advantage of the versatility that a tuner used in conjunction with a multiband HF vertical antenna can give him.
