Quick Overview

HF portable antenna W3-BP-DELUXE Buddipole Deluxe Kit.

Excl. Tax: £345.79 Incl. Tax: £414.95


The buddiepole is a shortened dipole; shortened by the means of high 'Q' loading coils. These are beautifully made and account for the very high efficiency of the system. They are positioned roughly half-way along each element, a compromise between efficiency and impedance matching. A purpose designed balun is used to feed the system via the supplied 8m of 50 Ohm coax cable, and the whole assembly plugs into the centre feed T-piece. This is a quick and positive arrangement. The T-piece acts as the centre-feed point and via the 1/2in thread in its base, a means of attaching it to the telescopic mast.

Each of the two dipole legs comprises three distinct parts. The inner section is an alloy element measuring 55cm, then a coil 12cm long (42mm diam) and a telescopic whip 33cm collapsed and 165cm extended. This gives a total dipole length of about 4.64 metres when fully extended for 40m operation. The whole kit packs down into a protective carry bag.
