You've just paid top dollar for a fully integrated, small footprint, lightweight, high performance transceiver begging to go into the field for adventure radio, SOTA, or emergency use... So why select an antenna that is three times bigger and heavier than the radio, hard to adjust, too long, or too short to be efficient on all bands that the radio is capable of? The Versa-Tenna KX series is specifically designed to work well with all Elecraft KX models with internal tuners, the K1 and K2 (10 watt) with internal tuner, the Elecraft T-1 external tuner, and any other QRP power level rig using external tuners like the LDG series (QRO version available at same cost). Operate all bands, 80 thru 6 Meters, with optimum performance on the classic QRP bands (40, 30, 20, & 15). Ultra-light at less than 6 oz.And very compact, the Versa-Tenna KX series end-fed antenna system is flexible, highly configurable, and easily fits in your pack, coat or cargo pant pocket. Improved "break-away" connector that releases the antenna if it gets stuck in a tree, and allows optional use of up to 3/8 paracord for support. What makes the Versa-Tenna different? It's made with 100% USA components...
Amphenol cable and connectors, and American toroids. Bullet connectors are soldered, never crimped. I use a unique binocular core network for better bandwidth, lower loss and easier matching.
The network and all internal connections are "potted" to prevent water intrusion and corrosion. All wire and cable is strain relieved. Components are high-visibility for safety, and recovery in the field.I build these antennas individually, not in batches, so your antenna always includes. The latest performance and material improvements. Improved design makes this antenna natively resonant on 40 Meters, the single most popular QRP band. No tuner needed to operate anywhere on the band at less than 2:1 SWR! Perfect for your minimalistic single band radio adventure kit!
New, "stealthy" model (all black) available upon request, as is a version for permanent installations. For those wishing to select specific wire and/or coax lengths, see. The photos show it in relationship to a KX1 & KX2 (not included, Hi Hi). Everything you need for a typical field installation is included; 25 feet of 120 Lb.
Test braided nylon support line, 17 Ft. Of RG-174 coax with a BNC connector, and unique break-away 31 foot radiator lead (you supply your own desired throwing-weight fishing sinker).
The antenna is warrantied for 90 days on a repair or replace basis, except for user-caused physical damage.
