No tuning devices, no radials required
1.5 KW PEP/ 1KW AVG
Rugged fiberglass whip element and stainless steel mounting hardware for roof or marine mounting
Mounting hardware included for use with F2265 antenna tuner. Installed total height is only 12 feet. Includes 4ea 6 ft loaded whip antennas. Tested extensively and found to be an excellent antenna by many US State and Federal Agencies. Excellent results for medium to long range communication.
2019 ATU Mobile HF Antenna
The Barrett 2019 is an automatic tuning mobile antenna, specifically designed to interface with Barrett 2000 and 4000 series HF transceivers. Providing a frequency coverage of 2 to 30 MHz, the Barrett 2019 features rapid tuning (typically <1.5 s) and low power consumption capabilities. The active tuning elements of the antenna are housed in a waterproof, high-impact resistant plastic moulding. This housing incorporates a heavy duty anti-vibration mount at its base. Even with its rugged construction, the Barrett 2019 weighs only 3.6 kg.
An optional NVIS Kit (P/N 201910) is available in the form a single flexible whip section of 4.2 metres. Additionally, an extendable whip (P/N 201909) is also available.
WOLF HF ANTENNA
The “Wolf” Folded Dipole antenna is designed as a regional coverage antenna intended for near and midrange HF communications in environmental disasters and military tactical scenarios. This antenna can be configured as a Flat Top NVIS antenna, Inverted “V” for medium to long ranges, or a Sloping directional antenna. Its strong NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) capabilities allow for communications over mountainous terrain or in Jungle environments and its full 2-30 Mhz spectrum broadband coverage makes it an excellent antenna for ALE operations without the need for a tuner/coupler reducing system costs. No radial ground plane or grounding is required making the antenna ideal for rooftop or on the fly installations. The “Wolf” antenna can be purchased in Tactical or Permanent models.
WHISKEY 1KW BROADBAND ANTENNA
The Whiskey antenna is designed as a local, regional to continental (0-2500miles) coverage antenna intended for High Frequency Communications. It is an 0mni-directional horizontally polarized system. Typical use is for disaster and rapid deployment scenarios. Its strong NVIS (Near Vertical Incidence Skywave) capabilities allow for communications over mountainous/jungle terrain and its full 2-30Mhz spectrum broadband coverage makes it an excellent antenna for ALE operations without the need for a tuner/coupler. Radial ground plane or grounding is not required making the antenna ideal for ground/rooftop installations and mobile “on the move” field use. The “Whiskey” antenna can be purchased in transportable or permanent models.
BUSHCOMM HF Antenna Systems
The Efficient Broadband Folded Dipole antenna design offers a flexible solution for both Commercial & Private HF System operators.
The BBA Series antennas also have full compatibility with modern Digital Voice and modem data modes/protocols.
When mated up with a quality Bushcomm lightweight mast, the BBA antennas are adaptable enough to suit a wide range of installation configurations such as:
Horizontal - Between two masts.
In an inverted "V" configuration for for improved short distance NVIS propagation characteristics
Sloper configuration (One end tied to tree etc) for temporary installations
Light, yet sturdy construction ensures low total mass wind loading. Only the highest quality materials are used in construction, such as stainless steel wire and fittings along with UV resistant fibreglass rods. This produces an antenna that will survive the rigours of the outdoors for many years.
We have a comprehensive line of antennas to meet every combination of frequency range, power, impedance, and space requirements.
80-003 WHIP ANTENNA
6ft loaded whip antenna with stainless steel ratchet mount. This antenna can be mounted on a horizontal, vertical or any angle in between. The High Voltage cable is easy to attached and replace if necessary.
4017 Automatic Tuning Horizontal Dipole
The Barrett 4017 Automatic tuning horizontal dipole is designed for base station applications where space is at a premium but high performance is still required. Mounting on a standard 50 mm pole the Barrett Automatic tuning horizontal dipole can be mounted as close as 6 metres from the ground making it extremely easy to install. With a packed length of only 2.1 metres the antenna can be easily transported by air. The tuner has a memory system that stores tuning information for each channel after an initial tune sequence with unlimited capacity.
4011 Automatic Antenna Tuner
The Barrett 4011 automatic antenna tuner is designed for operation in both land mobile and base station installations. Housed in a fully weatherproof enclosure the 4011 will efficiently tune long wire antennas up to a length of 10 metres, wire loop antennas or whip antennas over a frequency range of 2 to 30MHz. Tuning is rapid, typically less than one second from the first time RF is applied, either whilst the operator is talking or when the “Tune” control is activated on the transceiver.
4015 Marine Automatic Antenna Tuner
Housed in a fully weatherproof enclosure, the 4015 Marine Antenna Tuning Unit (P/N BC401500) (ATU) will tune long wire antennas from 2.5 to 10 meters and wire loop antennas or whip antennas over a frequency range of 2 to 30 MHz. Tuning is rapid, typically less than one second the first time RF is applied, either whilst the operator is talking or when the “Tune” control is activated on the transceiver.
911 Automatic Antenna Tuner
The Barrett 911 automatic antenna tuner (P/N: BC91100) is designed for operation in both marine mobile and land base station installations. Housed in a fully weatherproof enclosure the 911 will tune long wire antennas, wire loop antennas or whip antennas over a frequency range of 1.6 to 30MHz. Tuning is rapid, typically less than two seconds the first time RF is applied, either whilst the operator is talking or when the “Tune” control is activated on the transceiver.
