Hustler 4-BTV HF Vertical Trap Antenna, 4 Band (10,15,20,40 Meter).
Hustler 4BTV 4-band HF vertical antenna is a 4-band, trap vertical antennas that provide an omni-directional pattern. The 4BTVs are designed as self-supporting verticals to give optimum operation in the 10, 15, 20, and 40 meter bands. They can also be upgraded to operate on 75 or 80 meters. These antennas perform well in restricted space areas. For optimal performance, radial wires should be used.
The Hustler 4-BTVs provide an electrical selection of bands through the use of optimum Q traps, which are individually and precisely tuned and internally sealed at the factory. The traps are parallel-tuned circuits, which provide efficient isolation between the vertical sections, permitting multi-band operation. Broadband operation, with low SWR over the entire ham band, is possible in a proper installation. The antennas are designed to provide for optimum performance from both an electrical and a mechanical standpoint. Mechanically, these antennas boast a heavy duty base and heavy duty aluminum tubing. The mechanical assembly is accomplished with all stainless steel hardware.
The performance provided by the Hustler 4BTVs is better than that of any other antenna of this type. The broadbanding is such that one measurement and setting permit both phone and CW operation. The antennas provide a nominal 52 ohm base impedance when installed and tuned. The radiation efficiency is equivalent to, or greater than, other trap verticals.
