1606T2FD-1400
BUXCOMM 1606T2FD-1400 is Compact in size. 1400 watts SSB & Total length is 90 ft. 1.5 to 55 MHz

$289.95

Cat#  1606T2FD-1400         1.5 to 55 MHz


1606T2FD-1400 is Compact in size.
1400 watts SSB,  330 wts FSK/CW/AM
T2FD exhibits Low Noise and provides high signal gain.
Wide band-width, and low noise performance.

Our T2FD type antennas are PoweRated at 1400 watts SSB, and the balanced termination we use are "non-inductive."

BUXcomm has been building and selling the T2FD series antennas since 1969. The BUXcomm T2FD series antennas are preassembled and tested, multi-band, folded dipole and are designed to cover the HF HAM bands, CAP, and MARS frequencies. This antenna covers all the amateur bands from 1.5 to 55 MHz  {VSWR < 2:1 1.9-18 MHz, VSWR < 2.5:1 18-55 MHz}.  It is 90 feet long and can handle up to 1400 watts.. The BUXcomm 1080T2FD and 1606T2FD can be installed as a Flat Top, Sloping or an Inverted V,

Primary applications are military HF broadband, NVIS, ALE, emergency HF and HOA communities.

Where space is limited, this antenna makes real DX'ing possible, and
without extreme height or elevation.  Many operators deploy this
antenna at 15 to 35 feet above ground with better than pleasing
results. The BUXCOMM 1606T2FD-1400 is a Broadband HF folded
Dipole designed for Military, Amateur and Commercial communications
operation from (1.5 to 55 MHz), 160 through 6 meters.
The BUXCOMM
model 1606T2FD-1400  antenna comes fully assembled and pre-tuned.
No further measuring or cutting is required. The BUXCOMM 1606T2FD-1400
is constructed from high quality, Super-Flex,  high-tensile strength, 
copper wire, with PE jacket, complete with fiberglass spreaders,
BALUN input matching network, and non-inductive termination. 
The single SO239 coax input provides a 50 ohm coax cable feed input.


Features:

  • No antenna tuner required.
  • Total Length 90 feet  (Once the antenna is hung according to instructions)
  • Factory assembled, ready to install (spreaders removed for shipping)
  • Covers 160, 80/ 75, 60, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, and 6 meters.
  • Frequency Range, 1.5 Mhz to 55 Mhz
  • Power Rated @ 1400 watts SSB voice, (330 watts RMS/CW/AM,)
  • Impedance (input) 50 ohms
  • Wire Included.
  • Fiber Glass spreaders
  • Integrated, BALUN and Balancing Termination Resistor
  • End Insulators
  • Center insulator
  • Pre Tuned, no measuring or cutting
  • Easy to install
  • Great DX performance  
  • An extremely broadband antenna.
  • Bandwidth    : 1.5 to 55 MHz
  • Input Connector    : SO239


BUXCOMM Engineering Note:    1606T2FD (85 ft+ A>C).
      Put it up or take it down in minutes, not hours.
Shown here is the new BUXCOMM "Qwik-Snap" Technique that enables rapid
installation of  your BUXCOMM wire type Antennas.  The "Qwik-Snap"  Spring
Clip and Wing Nut fasteners provide the user with a quick and easy installation
method.  In addition, our Qwik-Snap and Wing-Nut fasteners make for the ideal,
field-day, contest, portable, or mountain top installation.


When changing frequency, there's no fumbling and twisting knobs, thereby making band-changing and frequency hopping fast and simple. This is an important feature that enables faster band changing when operating contests.

MADE IN Lynchburg Virginia, USA

Biography:  Excerpted from the Department of the Navy Communications Manual.

PERFORMANCE:

"The United States Navy conducted extensive transmitting and receiving 
tests of a single T2FD antenna in the late 1940s at Long Beach, California.

They employed a Model TCC Navy 1000 watt transmitters with a frequency range from 2.0 to 18.0 MHz.  After a year of use on all frequencies the T2FD was found to be superior to individual antennas on the various bands.  All other antennas were removed from the Long Beach site after the tests.

Similar results were experienced by the Kyushu Electric Communications
Bureau of Japan.  Their experiments indicated that the terminated tilted
folded dipole was superior to the "zepp'' and halfwave dipole types previously
used.
