DXE-PS-2B PRO-STACK Broadband
Two Antenna Phasing System
The PS-2B PRO-STACK combines two
identical Yagi, log periodic, or vertical antennas in a
phased arrangement. It is a broadband system that
operates from 160 through 10 meters with no need for
coaxial delay lines. The PS-2B can be used in applications requiring these four basic antenna feed selections
(impedance matching automatically changes when any
antenna port is disconnected).
• Both antenna ports in-phase (default)
• Both antenna ports out-of-phase
• Antenna port 1 only
• Antenna port 2 only
Additional Applications
• Scalable Multi-Antenna Systems
The PS-2B easily adapts to larger arrays. For example, four stacked Yagis can be combined
by creating two sets of two and using a third PS-2B to combine the first two sets.
• Phased Verticals
The system can feed three vertical antennas in a four-pattern array. In this arrangement,
the three antennas are individual quarter-wave resonant antennas. The center #2
passive element must be directly grounded at all times. Elements #1 and #3 are then fed
in various phase relationships.
Additional Features
• 50 Ω system—switched by applying 12-15 volts DC to three control wires
• Power handling up to 5 kW
• High-impact RF-shielded cover
DXE-EC-PS2
• High RF-tolerant, silver-PTFE UHF connectors
• Proven high-performance DX Engineering RF Relays
• Safe 12-volt relay operation
• MOV surge protection on control lines

Active Magnetic Loop
HF Receiving Antenna
This 38 inch diameter loop antenna is designed for reception of MF and HF
signals and includes a very high dynamic-range low-noise preamplifier. It can
be mounted to a pole, mast, or any flat surface.
The magnetic loop responds primarily to the magnetic field while ensuring high
rejection of nearby electrostatic field noise. Interference reduction is further
enhanced by the deep nulls of the antenna’s directivity pattern that can be used
to null out or reduce interference coming from a specific localized direction. For
permanent installation, you can use an inexpensive light duty antenna rotator
to maximize the null.
• Very low IMD: works in both strong and weak
signal environments
• Up to 30 dB rejection over electrostatic
field antennas
• Primary Range: 100 kHz to 30 MHz
• Rejects power line noise
• Rugged construction
• No tuning necessary
• No HOA problems: low profile and works
at ground level
• Adjustable output level to optimize output
for your radio

Antennas: Vertical
Radial Plate
DX Engineering Vertical Antenna Matching Network
DX Engineering’s patented Radial Plate provides a
neat, easy, and effective way to connect essential
radial wires and feedline to your quarter-wave vertical
antenna. The plate can be attached easily and rigidly to
a 4x4 or 6x6 post, steel or aluminum pipe up to 3 inches
O.D., a fence post, or whatever is supporting your antenna.
Purchase the optional V-Saddle Clamp for mounting the plate
to pipe up to 3 inches O.D.
The plate assembly has been drilled for an optional SO-239 panel mount or bulkhead
mount connector, available from DX Engineering. This will ground the shield of your
feedline to the radial plate before it goes to the antenna, allowing maximum transfer of
ground current directly into your radial system.
• Provides attachment for coaxial cable shield
• Square to allow most radial attachment points
• Stainless steel plate won’t dissolve like aluminum

Without a means of adjusting feedpoint impedance, achieving
the best SWR on 80 meters on some vertical antenna
installations with excellent radial systems may be
difficult. The Vertical Antenna Matching Network
lets you tune a low impedance antenna to the
minimum SWR in the user-selected portion of
the 80 or 160 meter band without affecting
operation on the other, higher frequency
bands (if applicable). The Vertical Antenna
Matching Network can also be used on
160 meter Inverted-L and Tee-Top wire
verticals. The #12 AWG coil wire is
tin-nickel plated for high power handling,
corrosion resistance, ease of soldering,
and long-term reliability.
DXE-VMN-1 Vertical Antenna
Matching Network ..........$59.95
Tilt Base
No more climbing ladders or removing a bracket from the support post. One person
can easily lift the antenna, tilt it to the side and walk it down. The optional
DXE-AOK-TB1193 Wing Nut Kit makes for a no-tools fastening of the tilt base.
Precision-cut from 3/16 inch 304 stainless steel, the Tilt Base is
virtually indestructible and conveniently mounts to the same mast
that you use for the antenna and radial plate. The Tilt Base is great for
installations that need to accommodate CC&R, or for taking down antenna
during severe weather.
Use DXE-TB-3P for Hustler BTV models, DXE-TB-4P
for Butternut, GAP, Hy-Gain and DX Engineering
Verticals, and use DXE-TB-6P for HyGain 14AVQ. The DXE-TB-4P Tilt
Base is intended for quarter-wave verticals that have a minimum of 1/2
inch and a maximum of 2 inch O.D. base, weigh up to 20 pounds, and have a
height of no more than 28'. Vertical antennas up to 43' must be adequately
guyed, and extra precautions should be taken when raising or lowering
the antenna to avoid undue lateral stress on the tilt mechanism. If you are
mounting your Tilt Base to a ground mounted pipe, you will need two DXE-CAVS-2P
V-Bolt Saddle Clamps to complete the installation.

DX-77A 7-Band Vertical
The Hy-Gain DX-77A is an omni-directional,
self-supporting, automatic-bandswitching
vertical radiator. It operates on the 10, 12, 15, 17,
20, 30 and 40 meter Amateur bands. No ground
radials are required with the DX-77A. Its design
is based on an off-center-fed dipole, sometimes
called a “Windom” antenna. High efficiency
high-power traps are used to isolate the active
sections of the antenna.
The DX-77A uses a heavy-duty, tiltable mast
clamp that accepts masts up to 2.125" O.D. The
entire antenna can be easily raised and lowered
for tuning purposes and for use on recreational vehicles (RVs). The DX-77A’s overall
length of 29 feet (8.8 meters) contributes to exceptional bandwidths on 40 and 20
meters. Maximum Power: 750 watts average, 1,500 watts PEP.

AV-18HT Hy-Tower 5-Band, 50 Foot Vertical
The AV-18HT Hy-Tower is an omni-directional, self-supporting vertical radiator which
operates on 10 through 80 meters. 160 meter operation is possible with the addition of
a loading coil. The use of stub decoupling systems allows band switching on 10, 15, 20,
40, and 80 meters. The stubs isolate various sections of the vertical antenna so that an
electrical 1/4-wavelength (or odd multiple of 1/4-wavelength) exists on all bands. On 20
meters, the 80 meter section acts as a 3/4-wave radiator.
The tilting base of the Hy-Tower allows the antenna to be completely assembled on the
ground before it is raised into position. It is light enough for one person to assemble
and for two people to erect. The Hy-Tower is supplied with stainless steel hardware.
Maximum Power: 1 kW AM, 2 kW PEP. Overall Height: 53 feet.
The Hy-Tower is drop-shipped via motor freight directly from Hy-Gain to you.

BTV Verticals
The Hustler BTV antenna series
delivers good performance,
easy assembly, and the best
reliability of any multi-band
vertical on the market. These
antennas offer 2:1 SWR or
better at the band edges and
up to a 100 kHz bandwidth on
75/80M (5BTV and 6BTV only).
Hustler’s exclusive trap design
DXE-HSR-6BTV-P
offers the lowest loss possible.
Hustler BTV series antennas are a quarter-wave-trapped vertical design.
The antenna should be ground-mounted with radials or elevated-mounted
with tuned radials. Visit DXEngineering.com for more information about
radials for quarter-wave vertical antennas.
The sealed cover on the traps assures stable tuning in all kinds of weather.
There is a wide tuning range designed in the antenna to accommodate
differing ground plane conditions. All antenna sections use 1.25 inch
heavy wall, high strength aluminum. The traps use a solid 1 inch fiberglass
form for optimum electrical and mechanical stability. The base uses an
extra heavy duty aluminum mounting bracket with low loss, high strength
insulators.
The new, economical DX Engineering High Performance BTV packages
include a stainless steel tilt base and radial plate, radial wire installation
kit, direct coax feed add-on kit, bulkhead coax connector, low loss RG-8/U
jumper cable, and stainless steel V-clamps.

Multi-Band Trap Verticals
The 3 band Hy-Gain AV-12AVQ, 4-band AV-14AVQ and 5-band
AV-18AVQII use the same trap design as the famous Hy-Gain
Thunderbird beams. Separate air dielectric Hy-Q traps with
oversize coils give superb stability and quarter-wave resonance
on all bands. Their 18 foot overall length fits well in most urban
environments. The 14-AVQ covers the 10, 15, 20 and 40 meter
bands while the 18-AVQII adds the 80 meter band to the mix.
All Hy-Gain multi-band vertical antennas are entirely self
supporting—no guys required. They offer remarkable DX
performance with their extremely low angle of radiation and
omnidirectional pattern.
Hy-Gain vertical antennas handle 1,500 watts PEP SSB, have low
SWR and automatic bandswitching. Heavy-duty, slotted, tapered
swaged aircraft quality aluminum tubing with full circumference
compression clamps is used for radiators.
All Hy-Gain verticals feature a two year limited warranty.
