Compact 8 Band Base Antenna (HVU-8)



The HVU-8 is a unique and ultra-compact HF, VHF and UHF antenna developed for confined and restricted space installations like apartments and condominiums or for temporary or portable use. Installation is easily accomplished and convenient due the HVU-8 being only ½ the traditional height and weight of HF vertical antennas. It includes 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, 10m, 6m, 2m and 70cm bands in a compact and user defined combination to complement the new multi-band HF/VHF/UHF radios that have recently been introduced. Each HF band and 6m has it's own independently tuned radiator and radial system while the main antenna mast is pre-tuned for constant operation on 2m/70cm. Of course, band width is very narrow and radiator element tuning takes time and patience but the results are surprising. The HVU-8 comes with mounting brackets, U bolts, etc. for easy installation.
