Centre Loaded Helically Wound 1/2 Wave
The "G Whip" backpacker antenna consists of two helically wound units representing a reduced 1/2 wave dipole and it is centre loaded (coils are inserted between the main helical stem and the resonator half way along the length of each 1/4 wave element), the antenna covers 3.5 to 28 Mhz. (No tuner required) and is around 12 feet (4 Mtrs) in total length.
A lightweight version of the base station antenna that packs into a sturdy 45 " carry tube with strap. Ideal for portable HF operating but not for permanent base mounting.
