DX Engineering
Transmit Four-Square
Hybrid Controller—
4 Directions plus Omni
DX Engineering’s TFS4 Series Four-Square
Controllers combine a high level of
engineering excellence with attention to
operator convenience and ease of
installation. The controllers are available
for 160, 80/75, and 40 meters. They allow the
operator to receive or transmit with 5.5 dB gain
in any one of four directions with 20+ dB
front-to-back ratio for interference reduction from
unwanted directions. You can also switch to a single omni-directional pattern with the
push of a button. This combination permits you to listen “all-around”—unhindered by
pattern nulls—and then select the best direction for signal reception and noise rejection.
The TFS4 controllers are designed for use with a four monoband vertical antenna array
spaced at the corners of a square that is 1/4-wavelength on a side. The vertical antennas
must be ungrounded and resonant in the desired band, and should be directly base-fed
by coaxial cable phasing lines from the centrally located controller. DX Engineering has
vertical antennas that are well suited for this application. Above all, a properly designed
and installed radial system is necessary for top antenna performance, whether using a
single vertical or a full array.
DX Engineering strongly recommends our optional QWC Series 1/4-wavelength cables.
They are constructed of the highest quality Belden 8213, an RG-11/U foam dielectric
cable with a velocity factor of 84% (0.84). These cables are cut to a precise electrical
length based on your choice of center operating frequency. They are terminated with
hand-soldered Silver-PTFE PL-259 connectors and weather-sealed with shrink tubing.
Finally, each cable is tested for high voltage breakdown for maximum reliability and
power handling.
If you already have a Four-Square array with a hybrid controller (such as COMTEK
SYSTEMS, etc.) and would like to upgrade to improved performance and the Omni
feature, the DX Engineering TFS4 Series is a direct transplant. BCD logic switching
allows the use of a four-wire control cable to perform the necessary switching functions
when powered by the included DXE-CC-4SQR Control Console.
• Classic Hybrid Design—easy to install
• 5 kW CW Power Rating—high reliability
• Hot Switching Lock-Out—disables amplifier while switching
• Drop-In Replacement for COMTEK SYSTEMS—easy upgrade
• Proven DX Engineering RF Relays—high performance
• High-Impact Shielded Weatherproof Housing—unique protection

Antennas: Receiving
Maximum Signal—Minimum Noise!
How often have you heard the old saying “If you can’t hear ’em, you can’t work ’em?”
This is never more true than when you are in the pileup calling that rare contact that
you need, wondering “Did he come back to me?”
Single Direction
Beverage Feed System
DX Engineering provides all the tools you need to construct fabulous receiving
antennas—the kind that let you work stations that others can’t even hear! These
W8JI-designed amplifiers and antenna controllers are known worldwide for their
unequalled performance. Record-breaking DXpeditions—like VP6DX Ducie Island—
know and use DX Engineering receiving equipment. Follow their lead and enjoy
hearing those weak stations like you have never heard them before.
Splitter/Combiner
The DXE-BFS-1 is a single-wire Beverage Feed System.
This W8JI design is immune to strong signal overload
and core saturation common in multi-transmitter
contesting environments, and is used by winning
contest stations and low-band DXers. The unit uses
an isolated-winding, matching transformer system
to significantly increase the signal-to-noise ratio in
Beverage and other high impedance antennas.
The DXE-BFS-1 works with antenna impedances from
400-500 Ω. Included with the DXE-BFS-1 is a 470 Ω,
2 watt non-inductive resistor that withstands nearby
lightning strikes significantly better than hard-to-find carbon composition resistors.
Feedline impedance on the DXE-BFS-1 is designed for 75 Ω, although it will work
with 50 Ω coax. The DXE-BFS-1 uses an industry standard CATV type F connector.
DX Engineering sells quality 75 Ω coax and type F connectors for outdoor installations.
Benefits
• 100 kHz to 30 MHz operating range
• Spark gaps minimize damage from lightning
• Wing nut terminals eliminate soldering
• Metal housings used for superior shielding and improved life
• Flange-mount holes for easy mounting
• Ground isolated secondary essential for building beverage arrays

DXE-TB-5P
Reversible
Beverage System
The DXE-RBSA-1P allows two Beverage antennas
receiving in opposing directions to share the same space.
With the DXE-RBSA-1P, you can build a 2-wire reversible
Beverage antenna system with superior signal-to-noise
ratio, most useful at 40, 80 and 160M bands. The W8JI
design consists of a Feedpoint System and Reflection
Transformer. You can operate and even confirm the F/R
ratio of this antenna at any time from the operating
position.
This system is immune to strong signal overload and
core saturation common in multi-transmitter contesting
environments, and is used by winning contest stations and
low-band DXers.
The DXE-RBSA-1P has two antenna ports. The standard configuration of the DXE-RBSA1P has one port terminated (termination included) so both antennas share a common
feedline. Applying 10 to 18 Vdc to the feedline switches between the antenna, and the
direction of reception. For simultaneous reception from opposing directions, each of the
two feedlines connect to a separate receiver.
While the DXE-RBSA-1P is optimized to use 450 Ω ladder line for the antenna element,
the system will work with any 300-600 Ω 2-wire line. 450 Ω ladder line is available from
DX Engineering, sold separately. DX Engineering also sells quality 75 Ω coax and Type F
connectors for outdoor installations.
Benefits
• Broad operating range, 0.2 to 30 MHz
• Fully isolated grounds used to prevent common-mode noise and unwanted signals
• 75 Ω design enables the use of high quality, low cost cable
• Metal housings used for superior shielding and improved life

Use this to combine two receiving antennas to form an
array or to split the signal from an antenna to feed two
receivers. The DXE-RCS-2 also reduces problems and
performance shortfalls caused by impedance errors in
less-than-perfect antenna systems. This unit has a broad,
0.3 to 30 MHz range and features spark gaps to lessen
damage from lightning strikes.
Combining
• Matches the entire antenna system to cable impedance
• Wide bandwidth
• Built-in isolation and balancing
• Very high isolation between ports 1 and 2
Splitting
• Typical signal level reduction just over 3 dB per port
• Provides equal power, voltage, and current to matched loads on ports 1 and 2
• The individual receiver will not seriously affect the signal level of the other
DXE-RSC-2 2-Port Splitter and Combiner............................................................ $54.95
Receive Preamplifier
Optimized for a 0.3-35 MHz operating
range, this unit uses a push-pull amplifier
design to squash harmonic distortion.
Robust components help it handle high
signal levels and its dynamic range is better
than most receivers. This preamp is well
suited for indoor or outdoor use and can
be powered via coax feed. When DC power
is absent, a relay trips to automatically
bypass the amplifier.
Specifications
• RCA type phono jack and type F connector
• Gain: 16 dB, 0.3-35 MHz (+1.5/-1.5 dB over this range)
• Output Third Order Intercept: 43 dBm
• Noise Figure: 3.5 dB
• One dB Compression: +26 dBm (~0.4 W output)
• 500 Hz BW IM3 Dynamic Range: 110 dB or greater
• Requires 10-18 Vdc at 140 mA max.

2-Port Receiving
Antenna Switch
Select one of two output ports (generally connected to
different receiving antennas) from one feedline using the
DXE-RLS-2. Install the DXE-RLS-2 with two DXE-RBS-1P
Reversible Beverage Antenna Systems and select four
directions using a single main feedline. Install one or more
DXE-RLS-2s to expand larger Beverage arrays and share the
feedline back to the operating position.
Applying a nominal 12 Vac or DC control voltage through the
feedline activates transfer to port 2. Use DX Engineering’s
DXE-FVC-1 Voltage Coupler to supply the control voltage
through the feedline.
Benefits
• Metal housings used for superior shielding and improved life
• High-quality components
• Reliable CATV type F connectors standard
• Broad 0.3 to 30 MHz operating range with 75 Ω systems

Receive Feedline
Current Choke
The Receive Feedline Current
Choke (RFCC) is the most
effective solution to commonmode noise or unwanted signal
ingress in receiving systems
available. It provides thousands of
ohms isolation between the input and output coaxial shield connections while passing
desired signals, including DC or low frequency AC control signals. The RFCC has
extremely high isolation impedance, which effectively blocks common-mode noise or
unwanted signals, even in the presence of very poor grounding. The RFCC is effective
from 300 kHz to 30 MHz. It comes with standard type F female connectors, although it
can be used in any 50 to 75 Ω receiving system.

systems include a non-conductive mounting plate, clamps,
active matching system, and the 102" stainless steel whip
elements. The horizontal dipole element uses two 102" whips
for an overall length of 210"; the vertical configuration uses a
single whip. Whip antennas have excellent wind survival and
are very inconspicuous.
When space is limited, use the DXE-ARAV3-1P or DXE-ARAH3-1P in conjunction with the
DXE-TVSU-1 to provide for operation within 1/10-wavelength of a transmit antenna. The
active antennas have relay protection to prevent overload of the transmit signal. The
DXE-TVSU-1A sequencer controls switching times to ensure the receive system is
protected before transmit power is applied. Use the DXE-ARAV3-4P, DXE-TVSU-1A
and DXE-RFS-2 to provide four-square operation within 1/10-wavelength of a
transmit antenna.
The vertical configuration can be used as a single element or in combination with
DX Engineering’s RFS-2 Receive Four-Square Antenna System to build a broadband
directional array that can be switched in four directions to peak the signal or null
out noise. Vertical configurations are for suburban or rural locations with low levels
of ground wave propagated noise. The dipole configuration makes a very sensitive,
horizontally polarized receiving antenna. Horizontal polarization can greatly reduce
ground wave propagated noise in congested urban environments. Light weight and
low wind resistance reduces support requirements. The output connector is a Type F,
allowing use of readily available high performance CATV feedlines and connectors .

DXE-RFS-SYS-4P
Complete Package
DX Engineering
Receive 8 Circle
Packages
These packages are built around the DX Engineering Receive 8 Circle Array Controller
and the EC-RCA8 Receive Eight Circle Control Console. They are designed to be used with
eight identical, symmetrically-spaced vertical elements—active or passive—to provide
switching for an eight-direction receiving antenna system. (Passive elements
will generally provide you with a monoband receiving system).
The Receive 8 Circle system uses time-delay phasing (rather than conventional narrowband, frequency dependent phasing) to provide eight 45 degree-spaced directional
patterns. The time-delay phasing is directivity-optimized to produce wider and deeper
rear nulls and a narrower main lobe. The result is greatly reduced noise and undesirable
signals for a superior front-to-rear ratio (F/R). Better control of phase and currents
provides a cleaner pattern than found on vertical antenna transmit arrays.
The system also offers greater reliability in receiving applications. The RC8 controller
uses sealed relays—sized for receiving applications—with oxidation-resistant silver
contacts. Most transmitting four-square switches use large open-frame relays
with exposed brass contacts, which can lead to contamination, oxidation, and
poor conductivity.
The DXE-RCA8B-SYS-2P Controller and Switch Package includes:
• DXE-RC8B-1 Receive 8 Circle Array Controller
• DXE-EC-RCA8 Receive 8 Circle BCD Control Console
• DXE-SSVC-2P Stainless Steel V-Clamp for mounting the RC8B to a 1-2" O.D. post

Typical Installation
for DX Engineering NCC-1
This diagram shows the DX Engineering NCC-1 in a station with a single
transceiver that has a separate receive antenna port. The two active receive
antennas are shown deployed in the recommended position. The DX Engineering
RPA-1 Preamplifier is normally not needed as most of today’s transceivers have
built-in preamps to compensate for overall lower signal levels obtained from small
receive-only antennas. What is most important is the NCC-1’s ability to improve
the overall signal-to-noise ratio and null out interference from other directions.
The diagram shows the transceiver keying line set up to allow the NCC-1 to shut
off the power to the DXE Active Receive Antennas, which have an internal relay which
grounds the antenna for protection from TX RF.
The DX Engineering NCC-1 can be used with many receiving antenna combinations
including Single and Reversible Beverages, Receive Four-Square Arrays, K9AY
Loops, and more. It will increase the directivity of any properly spaced combination
of two similar antennas as long as the signal levels are within the range of the
balancing controls.

phasing of two receive antennas—
see specifications below. It is available
separately for those who want to design
their own variable receive antenna system.
DXE-NCC-1
Receive Antenna Variable Phasing Controller .................. $599.95
See NCC-1 specifications below.
Phase two receive antennas at proper spacing.
For optimal results, use identical antennas.
Electronically Rotatable Receive Antenna System
Phased receive-only antenna systems are used to create a directional pattern which can
peak desired signals and remove interfering signals. Variable phase nulling allows an
operator to improve reception by electronically reducing a stronger interfering signal
arriving from a different direction. It also can dramitically reduce noise.
This system includes two Active Receiving Vertical Antennas and the DXE-NCC-1 Receive
Antenna Variable Phasing Unit. It combines the two verticals to produce a steerable
directional array.
The system improves your reception of weak DX by:
• Combining two omni-directional antennas to produce an adjustable directional pattern
• Reducing overload from a strong signal in a different direction
• Reducing interference from distant signals or noise in a different direction
• Nulling directional strong signals to hear weak stations on the same frequency
Features
• Vertical antenna elements only 102" long
• Ideal for Amateur Radio or Shortwave listening
• Antenna elements are grounded when power is turned off
• Use with DXE-TVSU-1A sequencer for best protection before transmitting

Baluns, UNUNs & Chokes
73
Vertical Feedline
Current Choke
When quarter-wave antennas are constructed over
a good radial system, they have a feedpoint
impedance of about 36 Ω and currents are
equal between the vertical section and the
radial system. If the radial system is less than
ideal—due to short radials, too-few radials or
poor soil conductivity—the antenna system
will try to use the feedline shield as part of
the radial system. This leads to a loss in the
efficiency and a higher take-off angle. Often the
current introduced on the shield of the feedline
causes RFI at the operator position.
Placing a vertical feedline current choke (VFCC) at the
base of the quarter-wave antenna forces the currents to
equalize between the vertical section and the radial system,
even if the radial system is less than ideal. The balanced terminals of the VFCC should be
connected directly to the base of the antenna and radial plate with appropriate lengths
of low-inductance tinned copper braid.
The DX Engineering VFCC is supplied with an insulated mounting shelf to isolate the
feedline shield from ground. Purchase the optional V-Saddle Clamp for mounting the
VFCC to pipe up to 2 inches O.D.

Permatex® Neutral Cure RTV Sealant
Have you ever sealed a piece of electronic gear with ordinary RTV
sealant, only to open it later to find that the component had become
corroded? It wasn’t moisture that caused the corrosion—it was the
RTV. Ordinary RTV gives off acetic acid when it cures (that’s the vinegar
smell); it’s the acid that causes the corrosion. DX Engineering has
located a Neutral Cure RTV that is non-corrosive and safe for sealing
baluns and other electronic gear that will be out in the weather. Applies
just like “normal” RTV, dries in one hour and cures in 24 hours at 70 degrees F.

Balanced Current
With No Balun
W2FMI Series Baluns
When properly connected to balanced antenna loads like symmetrical dipoles,
unbalanced coaxial feedlines must have exactly equal and opposite currents on the
shield and center conductors. COMTEK baluns are value-engineered to provide
maximum performance at minimum cost while providing a superb, efficient match
between unbalanced coax and balanced antennas.
Balanced current distribution along the halves of the antenna assures correct pattern
shape and antenna efficiency. Current baluns add common-mode isolation between
the antenna and coaxial feedline.
The expected figure-8 dipole azimuth pattern cannot be achieved unless RF current
is flowing equally on both halves of the dipole. The COMTEK current baluns force
equal current to flow and prevent high values of common-mode feedline current.
This eliminates pattern distortion, unpredictable performance, RFI, and noise pickup
from nearby sources like TV sets and computers.
Baluns come in ratios for effective SWR matching between the 50 Ω coaxial
transmission line and the antenna feedpoint based on the feedpoint impedance.
COMTEK baluns have been designed to provide the lowest possible SWR match
across the specified frequency range.
Current baluns isolate or add impedance to unwanted common-mode current paths,
reducing or controlling common-mode current. Current baluns are the best choice
in almost all situations because they work better in most real-world systems by
isolating the input and output connections.
Contrary to some published information, a high common-mode impedance across a
wide frequency range is absurd, if not unachievable. The highest impedance values
are most useful at lower frequencies, while lesser impedance values are more than
adequate at the high end of the HF range. In most cases, baluns are installed as close
as possible to a balanced-to-unbalanced transition point.

Universal Wire Antenna Kits
DX Engineering’s three Universal Wire
Antenna (UWA) Kits offer the right
combination of parts and hardware to
create a wide variety of antenna designs.
You can create any type of wire antenna, including single band, multi-band, multifrequency and folded dipole, doublet and inverted-vee, off-center fed, Windom, Zepp,
long wires, rhombic, vee beam, and loop antennas.
The kits feature the new EZ-BUILD™ Center-T insulator and end insulators. The
insulators have a unique patented design that features a serpentine wire grip for
insulated DX Engineering Antenna Wire and DX Engineering’s high strength, high power
300 Ω ladder line. The serpentine wire connection grip is strong enough to support the
antenna wires without looping or wrapping the wire ends. This allows fast and easy
field adjustments of antenna length without soldering!
The insulators are made of a lightweight, high strength, UV-protected material. The
center-T insulator is designed to serve as a feedpoint and strain relief for antennas
made with either wire or ladder line, which may be fed with either ladder line or coaxial
cable. The center-T insulator can be the main support point for the antenna feedpoint
by using the top center hole to attach a support rope. It also serves as the mounting
and support point for any DX Engineering Balun.
The DXE-UWA8X-KIT and DXE-UWA213-KIT kits include a new strain relief bracket and
P-clamps with neoprene cushions that grip the coaxial cable without deforming it,
taking the weight of the hanging cable off of the connector. Each kit also includes
crimp-on ring terminals for ladder line and antenna wire, and connection hardware.

DXE-RR2X8B SO2R RF Antenna Switch
The RR2X8 is a dual-input, 8-port coaxial line switch for use in low- to medium-power RF
antenna systems, like those typically used in a single-operator/two-radio (SO2R) environment. It has the same high port-to-port isolation and reliability as DX Engineering’s famous
RR8-series single-input, 8-port remote antenna switches.
• Dual-input, 8-port, 4 kW key-down
• Excellent port-to-port isolation—
greater than 70 dB at 30 MHz worst case
• High RF-tolerant UHF connectors
• Enclosed 16 ampere RF relays
• Safe 12-volt relay operation
• 16 MOVs for surge protection on control lines
• 16 RF bypass capacitors
• High-impact, RF-shielded cover
• Includes one DXE-SSVC-2P Stainless Steel
V-Clamp for mounting
The DXE-RR2X8B is designed to interface with a customer-supplied logical switching unit,
which should provide protection against hot switching and prevent the master or slave
from attempting to select the same output port at the same time.
Manual operation is possible with two separate 1-of-8, control consoles such as the
DX Engineering CC-8A or EC-8. In this case, care must be exercised as the master transceiver
takes precedence over the slave when attempting to use the same antenna port.

DX Engineering’s Symmetrical Design—
Highest Reliability and Performance!
Remote Antenna Switches
Installation of these remote antenna switches is
hassle-free. There’s no need to remove the cover to
install the control cable—it plugs in with an external
connector. You can use inexpensive CAT-5 cable to
connect between the relay switch and the controller
at the operator position.
The DX Engineering RF Switch also provides great
SWR and superior port-to-port isolation.
DX Engineering RF Switches have a port-to-port
DXE-RR8B-HP-P
isolation of greater than 60 db for ALL ports, not
just the best port. This is the finest port isolation of all the coax switches we have
tested—and we have tested ALL of the major brands. In fact, one particular major
manufacturer’s switches tested as low as 30 dB. None of the tested switches have a
port-to-port isolation as high as DX Engineering’s switches.
This is one component in your station that should be the very best!
Features
• Fully RF-shielded with UV-resistant high-impact cover
• Can select individual or multiple ports for stacking cover, stainless steel
mounting bracket and hardware and phased array applications
• Lightning protection standard
• Safe 12-volt relay operation
• Solderless, removeable plug for easy installation of control wire
• Unused antenna ports can be jumpered for open control line with no
disassembly or shorted to ground
• Can be wired without disassembly
The DXE-RR8B-HP uses 16 relays (2 per port) in a star arrangement to provide greater
than 70 dB of port-to-port isolation. It is designed to switch coaxial lines in RF systems
operating up to 5 kW continuous duty. The DXE-RR8B-SD is the largest switch in the
RR8B series, designed to switch coaxial lines in high power RF systems up to 10 kW
continuous duty.

Auto Tuned
Stealth Antenna (ATSA)
Great for EMCOMM—Assemble
and Deploy in Minutes!
Do you live in an area where
antennas are not allowed?
DX Engineering has designed a
complete antenna system that
allows Amateur Radio operators
living under the shadow of
HOA-controlled areas to get on the
air easily. Even with a short 26 foot
wire antenna, you can typically be
on the air on all bands 40 meters
and up. With only 45 feet of wire
you can be on all bands from 80
through 10 meters! That’s because
the unique ATSA MatchBoxx™
module lets you use almost
any length wire—no more
“forbidden” lengths as with
other end-fed systems.
Most small, physically short
antennas exhibit narrow
bandwidth, limiting your operating
frequency range on the lower bands
to 50 to 100 kHz with acceptable
SWR. The ATSA’s integral auto tuner
always delivers the lowest possible
SWR at any operating frequency with no operator adjustments necessary. Just change
bands and the ATSA antenna will follow you!
The very low profile Remote Tuning Unit [RTU] is easily hidden, even in small bushes
or shrubs. Just “plant” the RTU with supplied spikes and lay out the minimum length
radials. The only thing visible is the wire antenna element, which can be made from
small diameter wire for a near-zero visual impact. You can further camouflage the RTU
with a plastic boulder or other items available at most landscaping stores.
The DX Engineering ATSA system is completely self-contained; even the required
12 Vdc power is carried by the coax. The ATSA will automatically match your coax to the
antenna at any HF frequency within seconds. The complete system includes the RTU,
stainless steel radial plate and hardware, radial wire, antennas wire, and two insulators.
It’s everything you will need to get on the air and operating right under their noses.
• Automatic bandswitching—tunes for lowest SWR
• Handles 200 watts SSB/CW
• Connect 12 Vdc power and RF through single coax feedline
