The coupling system between the 50 ohm of the cable coming from the rtx in the station and the impedance of the row is obtained with a UN-UN MAGNETIC BALUN (unbalanced /unbalanced) 4:1.
The construction is excellent, the winding of the Balun is made of silver copper wire coated in teflon 1.3 mmq, while the wire that acts as an antenna is (in according on the power chosen) from 0.5mmq to 1.5 mmq block cable of black color while the termination that goes to the transceiver is always on the SO239 connector. The whole thing is enclosed in a dust and anti-water container.
This leads to a number of not insignificant advantages:
Extremely portable and light weight.
Covered by broadband transmission and reception.
Elimination of static tension on the antenna.
Possibility of adjusting the antenna through a tuner.
Possibility of tuning the antenna to a specific frequency by adjusting the length of the wire.
Use of the metal structure of the balcony (or any other structure) as a counterpoise, thus eliminating the problem of ground that is difficult to resolve on the upper floors of buildings.
Ability to use allowed counterweights, connecting them to the end of the mass and leaving them dangle from the side, in the latter case, the tuner may no longer be needed. If the drop of the coaxial cable is greater than or equal to 20 meters the mass plan is not necessary.
Easy installation, even in spaces not totally free.
Excellent mechanical strength and weathering.
Excellent as an antenna for mobile, travel, emergency, QRP and why not also as a standard antenna.
Excellent cost / performance ratio.
Thanks to the pronounced irradiation angle of these antennas, DX connections are favored at the expense of local ones by losing a few signal points.
