The AV-18HT features automatic band selection achieved through a unique stub decoupling system which effectively isolates various sections of the antenna so that an electrical 1/4 wavelength (or odd multiple of a 1/4 wavelength) exists on all bands. Approximately 250 kHz bandwidth at 2:1 VVSWR on 80 Meters. With the addition of a base loading coil (LC-160Q) it also provides exceptional 160 Meters performance. Includes all stainless steel hardware and til-over base. Unity gain on 20, 40, 80; 2 dB on 10/15 Meters.
The S9v43' is a heavy-duty, telescoping, self-supporting fiberglass vertical antenna that is designed for use from 80 through 6 meters. This antenna is just under 42' tall and shares the same 50 OHM resonant frequency of 5.44 MHz as some traditional 43' telescoping aluminum verticals. The S9v43' weighs just under 9 pounds making it the lightest vertical in the market.
The S9v43' needs to be ground-mounted using a 54 inch long 1-1/2" standard galvanized plumbing pipe. The base tube simply slips over the pipe for a quick and easy deployment. (A mechanical connection from the antenna base tube to the pipe is neither required nor desired.) Included with the S9v43' is a stainless steel pipe mount clamp to keep the base of the antenna off of the ground. For optimum performance, the S9v43' should be used with at least 16 radials (32 preferred), with each radial at least 0.2 wavelength at the lowest operating frequency.

The new BB7V multiband vertical antenna provides coverage from 2 MHz to 30 MHz
without radials and requires the use of a tuner. In its nested configuration it is only 60” long and weighs in at 4.5 pounds. It has 6 telescoping sections that extend to a length of 22 feet when fully deployed. The telescoping sections are self locking (no hardware to lose) and can be raised or lowered in less than a minute. For permanent use the sections can be locked in place with a single screw per section. The extreme ease of raising and lowering this antenna will make it a favorite for those who have antenna restrictions or travelers wanting a quick and easy wide band antenna solution. The BB7V is a very slim, low profile antenna.
The Challenger antenna is the first production multiband antenna to utilize GAP technology. Thousands of Challengers are now in use throughout the world. From the jungle of New Guinea to the bitter cold of Finland to the brutal sands of Desert Storm, Challenger with its elevated feed links its user with rest of the world. Challenger is the first and only antenna capable of operating on eight separate bands from 3.5 MHz to 144 MHz. Its operating bands are 80m, 40m, 20m, 15m, 12m, 10m, 6m, and 2m. Over 130 KHz of bandwidth is provided on 80m. On 2m Challenger is a great base station antenna.
CQ tested the Challenger and established that on 2m, for example, its gain was approximately 6 to 8dB. On 40m compared to a mono band vertical, they found Challenger an S unit stronger. This is typical of the many reports received from amateurs around the world. Challenger is designed to be mounted directly in the ground or elevated. A ground mount is provided with each antenna. With the ground mount in place, the Challenger simply drops in. If necessary, because of space limitations, but not to improve performance, Challenger may be roof mounted since it does not require earth loss to obtain a 50 ohm match. Challenger requires a counter poise of three 25ft. insulated wires. They may be buried or just scattered on the ground. Symmetrical deployment is no critical. Adding additional wire will not significantly improve performance. All of these are covered in a 16-page assembly manual provided with each antenna.

The Eagle is the smallest antenna in the GAP product line. Its development was the result of your requests for a low profile, high efficiency GAP antenna. The Eagle DX-VI weighs just 11 pounds and can be installed almost anywhere -- at ground level, on a pole, on your roof or atop a tower. It is essentially a set of vertical dipoles -- the optimum singular DX antenna. No traps, coils or transformers are used to achieve multiband operation in this antenna either. Why is that significant? Traps are the "weak link in the chain" of a multiband antenna.
Critical to the design of the GAP Eagle was the requirement to permit operation anywhere on all of its designed frequencies. The Eagle provides full coverage with a VSWR less than 2:1 on 40m, 20m, 17m, 15m, and 12m and approximately 500 KHz on 10m without readjusting. 10m operation is further optimized with a supplied extender. Compare that performance to any other low profile vertical. With the Eagle, as with all GAP antennas, you will not need to buy a tuner. If a rare DX station appears on 7.050, but, you normally work the SSB nets around 7.250, just slide the VFO and key the rig!
If the band is wide open, you might work a LU6 with a coat hanger, but when conditions are less than perfect you want the highest S meter reading an antenna can provide. Efficiency is critical. The efficiency of the GAP Eagle is without equal. It has no traps, transformers or matching coils to rob transmitted or received power. For the highest S meter, choose a GAP Eagle.
Your latest requests have been for an antenna that's easy to setup, needs no radials, covers 10m-80m in addition to all the WARC bands and uses the same GAP technology found in our other products. In response to these requests GAP is proud to announce the newest addition to the family, the Titan.
The Titan is a center fed GAP vertical, that provides a host of benefits in a rugged, yet manageable form. The Titan offers broad, continuous frequency coverage in a no tune, easy to assemble format. Designed to work in a limited space or as the perfect compliment to an antenna farm.
One of the primary virtues of the Titan is the GAP center feed. By elevating the feed the earth loss is dramatically decreased, which means the RF is going out to make the contact instead of into the ground to warm the earth. Reducing the earth loss eliminates the need for a radial system. The Titan requires NO RADIALS.
Another key benefit the Titan provides is the ability to go virtually anywhere in the HF amateur spectrum, at anytime without having to make any adjustments. The Titan is the ONLY antenna marketed with total continuous coverage under 2:1 on 10m 12m 15m 17m 20m 30m 40m and 100 KHz on 80m. Titan's broad bandwidth and no tune feature make it an ideal antenna for getting those multipliers during contests or switching frequencies as band conditions change.
The Titan is a respectable 25' tall and weighs a solid 25 pounds. The Titan is configured to mount easily on a 1-1/4" O.D. mast. This mast can be a length of your choosing and since the feedpoint is elevated this mast can be as short as a foot.
