You can now get the same quality and performance as the standard Buddipole™ in a compact package that measures only 13" in length. The difference here is that the 2 longer arms (22" each) of the standard Buddipole have been replaced by 4 smaller arms (11" each) which allows for a much more compact package which easily fits inside a small daypack or travel bag.
The Mini-Buddipole comes with the following items:
Padded cordura antenna bag
Adjustable coils (2)
11" anodized aluminum arms (4)
Telescopic whips (2)
Quick-feed coax assembly (25' or optional 50' length)
3 coil clips (placed on coils at preset marks)
The antenna sets up in minutes and when fully extended is approximately 16' from end to end. The combination of the assembled length as well as the high-Q adjustable coils and offset-fed design make the Buddipole a very efficient portable antenna for 40m - 2m.
The power rating remains the same at 250 watts PEP. Weight is approximately 2.5 lbs. Antenna arms come standard in black anodization.
