The Sigma Euro-Comm
LW-20 Long wire Antenna
The LW-20 are end fed long wire aerials. They all
incorporate a 9:1 UNUN at the feedpoint enabling them to be fed
directly with 50 Ohm coaxial cable. The 9:1 UNUN also removes static noise and
provides a DC path to earth. All are able to handle up to 400W RF (full UK
LW-20: 20m in length, this will work on all bands from 80m –
6m via an ATU. Big performance from a small foot print.
These antennas give excellent results where space is at a
premium. However, please note that due to the varying impedance found on any
long wire antenna, the built in ATU in your average transceiver will not be
able to cope with all bands. For full band coverage you will need an external
ATU or possible some form of capacitive loading system. This can be a simple L
or T match.
The power rating is for intermittent amateur (400W CW or 500W SSB) use and not for AM broadcast or constant carrier data modes. For AM broadcast a much higher power BALUN is required.”
The LW-20 comes fully assembled and ready to go.
Also the poly weave wire will not kink and is extremely strong.
