The HFV-40 is a compact rotary dipole for 40m, as usual constructed in the best quality of production by Diamond.
The antenna is designed as a reduced dipole.
Due to the precise possibilities of aligning the dipole, the minimum SWR position can be tuned very effectively to the desired band portion.
As with all short-circuited antennas, the usable bandwidth is limited, you need to re-align the antenna when changing the operating frequency.
Usable bandwidth without tuner is approx. 30 kHz at 40m. The small pack of only 102cm makes the HFV-40 also suitable as a holiday antenna or for dayday portable operations. Installed, the dipole has a length of approx. 460 centimeters.
Due to the V-shape of the antenna, the turning radius is only 165 cm.
The weight of the antenna is only 2.3 kg, the connector is PL type, no cable is included.
The included clamp is suitable for shafts 30 to 62 mm in diameter.
