This antenna is the result of amateur radio lessons learned, one of which is. Put up a dipole, you. Short of physically breaking the elements (possible, but not easy) or incinerating the entire antenna, there isn't much damage that can be done.
You could even run it over with your Jeep, as I did (see photos) - don't try that with an End-Fed. Under normal or rough conditions this unit will last for years. It can be run over, hit with a bat (but keep the thread protector on), dragged behind a vehicle, or immersed for long periods. For 99.95 you will receive. An Original 20 Meter Linked Nano Dipole as depicted in the photos, tested and described below.
Made in America from materials sourced from US Sellers. Extension radials with connectors that turn a 20M dipole into a 30M dipole.
One set of 40M extension radials with connectors that turn a 20M dipole into a 40M dipole. One 1:1 Choke Balun. A BNC Female protector cap.
String carry pouch as pictured. Dipole in a ruggedized, ultra-compact, ultra-light form designed for demanding QRP and QRP portable radio operations. The antenna comes with three sets of radials, one for 20 Meters, one for 30 Meters and one for 40 Meters.Simply attach the supplied bullet connectors and engage the clips and your 20 Meter dipole becomes a 30M or a 40M dipole. Work three major bands quickly and easily without having to pack a tuner or multiple antennas. The antenna requires no assembly other than attaching the 30 or 40 Meter sections when you wish to work that band, no tuner, and accepts a BNC Male connector. A resonant dipole can help you make the most of low power transmitting without additional weight and space. Deploys effectively in just minutes. Perfect for POTA, SOTA, or any portable activation. Imagine hiking to the top of the peak or journeying to some remote location and finding out you have forgotten some innocuous piece of equipment that renders that expensive, fancy antenna dead weight.
Or worse, some form of damage has occurred in transit that prevents your primary antenna from functioning. Having one of these will prevent your efforts from being an exercise in frustration and will not add weight or take up precious space. Some configurations do not even require a center support if the ends are secure (see photo). Many experienced hams would agree that it is very easy to erect an antenna system inferior to the classic half-wave dipole, and very difficult to out-perform one.There are no short-cuts or electronic tricks involved here. The Nano linked dipole is a classic half-wave dipole antenna optimized for QRP / QRP Portable and Stealth operation. It takes almost no space and weighs almost nothing. It consists of an BNC connector 24 AWG stranded, UL1007 copper antenna wire and two (2) ring connector eyelets at each end. The 30 and 40 Meter sections attach with 2 spring-back paracord clasps which relieve the strain on the bullet connectors that carry the current.
All electrical connections are soldered using silver bearing rosin-core solder. Parts and connections have been weather proofed using marine-grade, adhesive-lined polyolefin tubing. Weighing approximately 4.3 oz. (123 grams) this antenna is a half-wave dipole on 20 meters, a half wave dipole on 30 meters, and a half-wave dipole on 40 meters when the additional elements are attached. When compressed, it fits into a space 6" x 3" x 1.5 (152 x 76 x 38 mm).
Extended, the dipole is cut for 20 meters, the elements 30 or 40 Meters. The Linked Nano can be used in any of the standard dipole configurations, flat-top, inverted V, sloper, vertical dipole, wire vertical w/counterpoise, etc. Having used many antennas over the years, and for portable QRP operation, I have not found any antenna configuration to greatly out-perform the classic half-wave dipole as demonstrated by our Nano Linked Dipole. All things considered conditions, power, terrain, height etc., with this antenna raised close to a 1/4-wave above the ground, I have been just as successful, or more, making contacts with a classic half-wave dipole than with anything else. The exceptionally rugged, compact and light Nano allows this portable performance anywhere.
