MFJ-1898 Portable Collapsible HF/6M Antenna

80/60/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 and 6-Meters portable HF antenna

The MFJ-1898 Portable Collapsible HF/6M Antenna is a versatile and compact antenna that covers almost all of the HF bands plus 6-Meters for true portable field operation. It easily collapses down into two sections, measuring a sleek 1.25" x 11.5" and can fit with your radio, antenna tuner, and other accessories into your backpack, making it perfect for POTA, SOTA, or single-man DXPedition trips.

This antenna can handle 125 Watts PEP SSB and has a reasonably low SWR, so an antenna tuner may not be necessary on most bands. Its fully telescoping whip is made of high-quality stainless steel, while the bottom section is constructed of highly durable and strong fiber-reinforced plastic.

Fully assembled, the MFJ-1898 measures just 21.75 inches, and when fully extended, it stretches to a whopping 103 inches, making it easy to tune due to its built-in tapped tuning section base, which unscrews to reveal a nifty tuning chart like a ruler. You can quickly learn your settings for your favorite bands, write them down, and easily retune to different bands.

The 3/8-24 threaded connector lets you use it as a parked mobile or even as a quick base station antenna. It is also great for field day and even parked mobile. With 80/60/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 and 6-Meters in one truly portable HF antenna, the MFJ-1898 is the perfect choice for portable field operations.
