The BUXcomm Windoms are constructed using the best components for this multi-band antenna.
Many years ago, we found the best (optimum) feed-point of the Windom (often called an OCF) is near 233 ohms "impedance," when erected between 30 and 55 feet above ground. At that point in the evolution of the Windom antenna, we set a "standard" for the industry by using a 4 to 1 BALUN. Only when the windom is installed 55 feet or more above ground, is it necessary to use a BALUN with a higher output impedance.
We've had several operators ask us if it is OK to allow the feed-point BALUN to be supported by theantenna wire and BALUN terminals. On all BUXCOMM BALUNs we install large, heavy duty eyeboltsso the BALUN can act as a center insulator. The antenna terminal connections are completely free ofany tension or excessive strain. All the tension is on the heavy-duty eyebolts. Our BALUNs support the weight of the Windom, end to end.

Our Windoms are complete, factory assembled and tested. When you receive your BUXCOMM Windom,
it is ready to connect the coax cable and erect. BUXCOMM is the leading Windom and OCF antenna producer
in the world. SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH CAN RESULT FROM CONTACT WITH A RADIATING ANTENNA
ELEMENT. TURN THE TRANSMITTER OFF WHILE INSTALLING OR MAKING ADJUSTMENTS TO THE
ANTENNA. WARNING: When erecting an antenna, never install near power lines, and never work alone.
