OCF-3K160 Multi-Band Dipole
The OCF-3K160 dipole is the same as our OCF3K80 except with the addition of 160 meter coverage. It is designed for low
to medium power levels. It will work well on the 160, 80, 40 ,20, 17,12, and 10 meter ham bands with no need for
The antenna can be mounted as a dipole or inverted vee. It is complete, cut, tuned, and ready to hang.
The OCF-3K160 is complete
with a 4 to 1 Balun. It can be fed with standard 50 ohm coax . It is 266 feet long. 90 feet on one Leg and 176
feet on the other.
The antenna wire is composed of 2 conductors with 7 strands per side.
4 strands are copper and 3 strands are steel.
The wire is rated at 200 lbs tensile strength.
This wire will not kink and is very easy to handle.
The Center insulator is made of quality
schedule 40 PVC and Quality zinc plate eyebolts
For the size, weight and cost, I simply do not think there is a better performing antenna
when the user is limited to a single or wire type antenna. Multi-band, high performance and high power handling, with utmost
simplicity and ease of use. You will not be disappointed.
