receiving antenna from 25 MHz through the 1296 MHz Ham Band, and
you can use it as a
transmitting antenna from 130 MHz through 535
USING THE ANTENNA FOR TRANSMITTING
For transmitting, you must set the antenna length as close as possible to the trans-
wavelength. This ensures the best possible transmission by
using the proper standing wave ratio (SWR).
• When you use the antenna to transmit, you must always collapse the section
located just above the loading coil. If you do not, you might damage the
antenna and/or your radio.
• When you use the antenna to transmit, you must calculate the
and adjust the antenna length accordingly. If you do not do this, you can dam-
age your transmitting equipment due to an improper standing wave ratio
Use this formula to calculate the proper length for a
wavelength transmitting an-
