WHAT IS A DX-1?


The DX-1 is a Vertical Antenna System used in Transmitting/Receiving ,as a portable, or fixed operations, in the HF Ham, Shortwave , Military, Goverment, Aircraft, allocated frequencys.

Antenna Description!

The DX-1 antenna System is a very Simple Antenna to Setup and operate.

Only takes 10 minutes to setup and  needs only one man operation.

Needs no Support from another building, trees, poles, if used on ground level in the portable operations , like Field Day, Dx-Expeditions , Remote Military sites, Forest, Deserts, Mountains, Beaches. There are3 different Mounts that are used in each type of location.

Can be Mounted on the Ground ,Mobile Homes, Motor Homes,On towers, Telescoping Poles, Wood, fences if used in a fixed  position, for base antenna setup.

The DX-1 Vertical Antenna System Has the following Parts:

1: Telescoping Pole:

   This is what holds the antenna coil in the Vertical Position. Made from Fiberglass and when collasped, is only 46 " Tall. Has 2 end caps. Top and Bottom. When you take the top rubber cap off, You grab the base of the mast and flick it out like you where casting out wth a fishing rod, and out comes 20 foot of mast! You then go to each telescoping joint and pull them out till tight.That will help in keeping the mast from sliding back inside each other, Just like a Rabbit ears on a TV. The telescoping mast holds the coil up 20 feet for support.

2: The COIL:

The Coil 2 1/2" Tall. 2 13/16" in Diameter. Has 84 Turnes. Each coil is 9" round. Take the 9" X 84 Turnes = 756inches, divide that by 12 ", comes out to 63 feet total coil surface. T he coil is made by 2000 James Industries, INC. - PO box 407, Hollidaysburg, PA. 16648. Saftey tested - meets or exceedes ATSM f-963 Code. The coil is made of stainless Steel. Will Not Rust, Crode,oxidize.. The coil will handle 500 watts of  RF.The coil will hold up in severe cold and hot weather.The coil is the antenna, and it is held on the telescoping pole by pressure from the base of the coil, which has a center hole that is slighty smaller than the outside of the telescoping mast bottom .The coil is  hooked up by a 10 ga solid copper feed from the base where a so-239 and a ground terminal are located.

The telescoping Mast and the coil have lasted thru cold winters,and winds gusts exceeding 75 mph !

3: Brackets:

Come with 2 Steel brackets, 1 inch in diameter. that attach around the base of the telescoping mast , 18 - 24 inches apart.

There is no tuning or adjusting is needed on the coil, or moving the telescoping mast. You use A antenna tuner for that.
