Hi Les, N1LF

I recommend you the WIMO antennas wich are relatively short boom
as you can see downloading the following pdf file.


The model 18010 is for 2 meters while the model 18011 is for 70 cm

The phasing harness to get RHCP or LHCP are listed into the pdf file
and are sold separately.

73" de
