HF-315 Unassembled

This is a great portable antenna solution for use anywhere that a small, lightweight, high performance portable antenna is needed. Perfect for use with the Yaesu FT-817, Elecraft KX3, Icom IC-703, and various HF military manpack radios.

These antennas are made from quality parts and materials – i.e. all metal variable capacitor, high quality low-loss internal wiring. Loop cables are made with high quality Amphenol® PL-259 connectors and good quality coaxial cable. The included stand is made from thick-wall schedule 40 PVC pipe.

Main Features:

  • Ultra portable. Can be easily stored inside a small case, bag, backpack, etc.
  • Very lightweight. 1.5lbs.(0.7kg.) without included PVC stand, 3lbs.(1.36kg) with stand.
  • A great HF antenna solution for Hiking, SOTA, EMCOMM, etc.
  • Built-in standard tripod mount for use with photo tripods if needed.
  • BNC connection to radio.
  • No separate fussy coupling loop needed. Tuning and coupling components are housed within a single enclosure.
  • Very quick and easy to tune as needed. Simply tune for maximum noise on receive and then apply transmit power & fine tune (if needed) for lowest SWR.
  • Transmit/Receive frequency coverage is continuous from 3 mhz to 15 mhz, including the 80/75m, 60m, 40m, 30m, and 20m Amateur Radio bands.
  • Design provides good performance at all covered frequencies.
  • Rated transmit power of 25 watts P.E.P. SSB/CW, 10 watts continuous carrier.
  • Wide usable bandwidth between 2.0:1 swr points, even at lower frequencies. Typically 15khz or more. High signal transfer efficiency is maintained throughout the usable bandwidth.
  • Does not require any type of counterpoise, ground radials, nor ground connection for operation.
  • Does not require an antenna tuner. Tuner is built-in.
  • Inherent low-noise, high signal ratio.
  • Hi-Q design helps to reject off-channel interference.
  • Directional & magnetic signal response properties of the antenna allow for high rejection of local noise sources along with maximum reception of the desired signal.
