Tarheel Antennas LITTLE TARHEEL HP
Little Tarheel HP antenna -
When properly installed on your vehicle this antenna will provide continuous coverage from 7.0 to 54 MHz with the supplied whip. The Little Tarheel antenna like all of our motorized antenna models are built to meet the highest standards but in a smaller size.
All of our antennas come with the sensors already pre-installed so if you decide to add one of the auto controllers (SDC-100 Simple Controller, SDC-102 Programmable Controller, Turbo Tuner) now or later everything is ready.
We designed this antenna for the person who wants to enjoy HF mobile but is not interested in our large antennas. Don't let the small size fool you because we designed this antenna to be mounted higher on the vehicle, and when mounted higher on the vehicle you have less ground loses which equals higher performance. Also, because of the smaller size you can use a more common type of mount like the Diamond K400 Series, the Comet HD-5 Series or similar 3/8" stud type mount.
And like our other antennas you get the same great look with our Powder Coat Paint System with standard colors of Black, White, Red or Silver. It also comes with the LexanTM Weather Shield like its big brothers, not the flimsy stuff others use. This model also uses the commercial 12 volt gear motor.
We designed the Little Tarheel as a package. All you need extra is a mount of some sort and a nice HF radio. Included standard with the Little Tarheel II antenna is: the whip, 20 ft. of plug & play control cable, manual control box, ferrite decoupling core and 3/8-24 stud.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH RECEIVER HITCH MOUNTS
Don't forget to look for the appropriate automatic screwdriver antenna tuner from TurboTuner! Proudly made in the USA, the TurboTuner comes in three models: ITT-1 for Icoms. KTT-1 for Kenwoods, and ZTE-YTT-1for Yaesu.
