NIE Longwire Antenna
*New* Addition to the NIE Antenna family.
The NIE Longwire Antenna could be the simple answer to many a Ham's problems regarding space and multi-band use.
The Antenna comes complete with wideband AMU fitted as standard and will also have an earth terminal available to assist with attaching 1/4 wave length counterpoises (for each band in use) optional , which will assist with matching, and also reducing some of the airborn QRN.
The approximate length is 67 feet from AMU( terminated with a silver / teflon SO-238 connector to allow direct connection via PL-259) to the end of the longwire element which is fitted with a heavy duty insulator as are all my antennas.
The antenna is built to the usual high standards using 4mm2 tri-rated cable & using only the best quality materials I have to hand.
The antenna will tune most bands via internal atu, but I would advise the manual atu for best match & ERP.
Max pwr rating will be 100 watts..
Thank you to those of you who have recently purchased this antenna, and may I wish you many good DX contacts.
