Calling CQ DX!
When disaster strikes, there’s no time to make a packing list.
There’s no denying the fun of Amateur Radio—operators of all ages enjoy
making contact with other Hams from around the globe. But let’s not overlook
the important role Amateur Radio plays in our community.
To ensure that you’re ready at a moment’s notice, build your Go Kit now.
A good kit should contain everything you need to get on the air, including the radio,
audio gear, and all the appropriate hookup cables and accessories. Power is important
too, in the form of a reliable 13.8 Vdc power supply, and a power source like a battery or
generator. Finally, remember to select a watertight and shock resistant case to protect
your equipment.
We prepared a pair of Go Kits to demonstrate two typical setups. One is tailored to
the 2 meter band, while the larger Go Kit can get you on virtually all the Ham bands. If
you’re starting from scratch, you can purchase one of these kits by specifying either part
number. Alternatively, you can use them to benchmark your own Go Kit, as each piece is
available separately.
You’ll notice there’s no antenna listed in either kit. We’ve left that decision to you. Check
out the dozens of rapid-deployment antennas listed in this catalog or make your own
with components from our Antenna Building section.
This is just a starting point. If you’re interested in EMCOMM, you should flip through the
ARRL’s ARES Field Resource Manual—it’s packed with valuable information like gear
checklists and operating guidelines.
Let’s talk about Emergency Communications, or EMCOMM. Our family,
friends and neighbors count on us as the backbone of communications
during an emergency. There’s very real truth to the phrase “When all else fails,
Amateur Radio Works!”
And we intend to keep it that way.
A quick glance across the cover of this catalog reveals the centerpiece of
EMCOMM equipment: the “Go Kit.” A Go Kit is packed with everything an
operator needs to spring into action if disaster strikes. See the Go Kit’s exact
contents listed near by. And as you dive deeper into these catalog pages,
you’ll find plenty of additional gear to prepare you for emergency operations.
If you have questions about EMCOMM or your Go Kit, just call us. Our staff is
comprised of ARES leaders, Section Managers, Sky Warn and Armed Forces
veterans with decades of experience in emergency communications. In fact,
those are DX Engineering team members you see on our front cover:
Teri, K8MNJ, and Chad, KD8WJK.
Remember, the FCC has entrusted us with a coveted spectrum resource. It’s
our duty to ensure that Amateur Radio remains a valuable public service.
I hope to hear you on the air!

forgive, and you will be forgiven”
DX Engineering Now Carries Yaesu! For over 50 years, the world’s top
contesters and DXers have relied on Yaesu radios. In that time, the company has
built a reputation for creating Amateur Radio gear with an equal blend of
innovation, quality and performance.

At the time of this catalog’s printing, the islands were
listed as number three on the DXCC’s Most Wanted
list. That makes them a prized contact for anyone
chasing the ARRL’s DXCC Honor Roll Status.
Early in the planning stages, the VP8 Team met with
DX Engineering to build a comprehensive antenna
setup that would ensure the DXpedition will have no
trouble making worldwide contacts. DX Engineering’s
staff worked with the team to develop innovative
antenna solutions for the unique challenges posed by
the island’s location and harsh environment.
To see what DX Engineering supplied the VP8 team
with, visit DXEngineering.com and type in keyword
“VP8.” You’ll see parts combos that illustrate the
DX Engineering antenna components that the
DXpedition crew will use on the islands.

IC-7851
HF/50 MHz Transceiver
Icom just raised the bar on HF receivers. The IC-7851 is designed to give contesters and DXers
an edge by incorporating an all-new local oscillator that dramatically reduces phase noise.
The purity of the overall design results in a reciprocal mixing dynamic range of 110 dB, which
means distant signals are clearer and easier to hear. Better still, a new spectrum scope has
twice the sweep speed of previous models, which enables you to see those weak signals
with a higher degree of accuracy. Its dual scope function lets you simultaneously watch
activity in two bands—so you can snag that rare country or multiplier!
The IC-781 also features a newly developed 1.2 kHz roofing filter to greatly improve in-band
adjacent signal performance. Enhanced mouse control makes this radio even easier to use. With digital IF filter technology, you can easily adjust filter width parameters, essentially
allowing you to build your own IF filter. A digital RD speech compressor improves your voice’s tone quality, giving your on-air presence a little extra “punch.”

Icom’s D-STAR ready ID-1 1200 MHz digital transceiver is equipped with a system that
connects repeater sites over microwave links and the Internet to form a wide-area Ham
radio network. With this Icom digital transceiver, your voice and data will reach further
than ever before.
The ID-1 1200 MHz digital transceiver embeds your own and the called station’s call signs,
which can automatically be stored in memory. You can send a short message in DV mode
and communicate with an analog FM transceiver. Plus, you can enjoy DSQL that opens
the squelch only when your call sign is received and CSQL when sharing a single call
sign for quiet standby while others are talking. And, when you need the attention of all
stations in the area, the enhanced monitor request (EMR) bypasses the CSQL and DSQL
so all stations will hear your audio.

Microfiber Terry Cloths
Store-bought paper towels (or an old t-shirt) can
scratch plastic faceplates and LCD screens. You may
not notice it at first, but the scratches will slowly
build up until the surface becomes faded and blurry.
Microfiber cloths are a safe way to clean your gear, and
they’ll work great on glasses and automotive finishes too.

This kit, consisting of one digital scanner and one 7" digital picture frame, is the
perfect way to digitally capture and display your QSL Cards or 4" x 6" photos.
Simply feed your QSL cards through the scanner, then transfer the scanner’s SD
memory card to the digital picture frame. It’s a great way to preserve the cards and
remember QSOs, while showing off your collection. Over 3,000 QSL cards can be

Duck and Coverage.
If you’ve ever heard a Ham Radio operator
refer to a “rubber duckie,” they’re talking
about the small, rubber antenna that most
handheld radios leave the factory with.
Though a rubber duckie boasts a solid blend
of performance, size and durability, there are
other antenna options that offer improved
gain and signal reception.
Aftermarket antennas are an affordable way
to squeeze the most performance from your
handheld radio. We carry a wide range of HT antennas from
manufacturers like Comet, Diamond and MFJ. Check out the
Handheld Antennas section near the back of this catalog.

When Marconi first began experimenting with a
spark gap transmitter, he didn’t have to worry about
RFI. Nowadays though, everything from household
appliances to overhead power lines can pollute the
radio spectrum. If you’re dealing with unwelcome
noise (QRN) in your shack, there are solutions. Check
out the chokes, ferrite beads, noise finders and audio
enhancers found in this catalog.
Remember, we’ve been troubleshooting RFI issues
in our own shacks for years—call us and we can work
through it together.

SignaLink Radio Interface Cables
You need the right cable for your SignaLink. If you change radios, add these to your
existing SL-USB. These cables use either your radio’s mic connector or rear DIN port.
Some radios do not have the “RX Audio” signal on the mic connector and will require
a mono cable between the SignaLink USB and the radio. You can avoid this issue by
attaching the SignaLink to your radio’s Data or Accessory port.

Take the feature laden RigExpert TI-7, and then add
wireless Internet control capabilities and you get the
WTI-1. By using a Wi-Fi connection, you’ll be able to
operate your radio from another country, or share your
rig with your friends. That means your laptop essentially
becomes your station! It’s also a great option if you want
control capabilities for a remote station. The interface
gives you all of the digital modes you’d expect, plus
remote VoIP operation.
The WTI-1 connects the same way the TI-7 does, so you’ll
need a special radio interface cable found in the table

Speech
Intelligibility
Enhancer
Developed by Martin Jue to compensate for his hearing loss,
this enhancer significantly increases speech energy above
500 Hz where 83% of intelligibility is concentrated. Amateur
radio communications limit audio to about 300 to 2700 Hz.
The enhancer splits the audio band into four overlapping
octave ranges centered at 300, 600, 1200 and 2400 Hz. You
can boost or cut each range by nearly 20 dB to maximize
speech intelligibility for most kinds of frequency loss.
Output audio is split into left and right channels with
separate 2.5 watt amplifiers; a balance control lets you
equalize the perceived loudness to each ear. The enhancer
works with SSB, FM, AM, CW or any voice mode on Ham,
marine, aircraft and CB bands.

Speech
Intelligibility Enhancers
“As I got older, my high frequency hearing loss was
destroying…ham radio for me...” Martin F. Jue, K5FLU/
President and Founder of MFJ Enterprises, Inc.
Developed by Martin Jue to compensate for his hearing
loss, this enhancer significantly increases speech
energy above 500 Hz where 83% of intelligibility is
concentrated. Amateur Radio communications limit
audio to about 300 to 2700 Hz. The enhancer splits
the audio band into four overlapping octave ranges
centered at 300, 600, 1200 and 2400 Hz. You can boost
or cut each range by nearly 20 dB to maximize speech
intelligibility for most kinds of frequency loss.
Output audio is split into left and right channels with
separate 2.5 watt amplifiers; a balance control lets
you equalize the perceived loudness to each ear. The
enhancer works with SSB, FM, AM, CW or any voice
mode on Ham, marine, aircraft and CB bands.

A Clean Key is a Happy Key.
Your key or paddle relies on spotless electrical contacts to create
a crisp, clear tone. More importantly, dust, grit and the occasional
cookie crumb can interfere with the key’s precise mechanical
movement to make it frustrating to operate CW. Keep your gear in
tip-top shape with high quality cleaning solutions from CAIG and
Techspray. (That way, you won’t have to adjust your cookie intake!)

These meters are designed to
read RF power in PEP watts, which is
useful in measuring SSB, DSB and AM signals. They’re
similar to a standard wattmeter, yet can change from
average to peak readings with a flip of a switch. These
meters are built to the high standards Coaxial Dynamics
is famous for, and deliver the bulletproof accuracy that
wireless communications professionals demand.
The meters use the plug-in elements to define the power
and frequency range you want to measure. Each meter
requires a single 9-volt battery.

Dynamics meters for your own station. Simply connect the
meter between your RF power source and your antenna (or
dummy load), and with a few minor adjustments you’ll be
able to measure forward or reflected power.
Each meter requires plug-in elements to choose or expand
the power and frequency range you want to measure,
available at DXEngineering.com.
The meters are shock-mounted in a virtually indestructible
chassis, making them well suited to the field. For extra protection, check out the Carrying Case. It is made specifically

Adding a meter or other in-line component
means you’ll probably need a short section
of “jumper” coaxial cable. But cobbling one
together from scrap cable and connectors found
around your shack could compromise station
performance. DX Engineering offers several
professionally-made, low-loss cable assembles in
short, 3 foot lengths. Just choose your connector
and cable type, and you’re ready to go. Check out
the Cable section in the back of this catalog.

ACOM, Outstanding HF Power Products
ACOM is quickly building a reputation among
serious contesters for its cutting edge, high
performance Amateur Radio gear. Nowhere
is this more evident that with ACOM’s stunning line of RF power amplifiers.
We can only mention a few of them here, so visit DXEngineering.com to see
more products, features and specs.
600 Watt
HF+6M Linear Amplifier
This amplifier gives you comprehensive remote control capabilities. Operation is via
a series of intuitive menus displayed on a high-resolution color display. Using the
amp’s CAT interface, the amplifier will automatically “follow” the transceiver while
switching bands.
The 600S monitors the input frequency and will automatically switch the bands to
compensate for changes. It’s compatible with all transceivers on the market and needs a
mere 30 watts of input power to operate.
AOM-600S
600 Watt HF Linear Amplifier...........................................$2,794.95
AOM-RPON
1,500 Watt Automatic
HF Linear Amplifier
This is the first Amateur Radio HF amplifier to combine fully automatic tuning and
sophisticated digital control capabilities. Using a revolutionary new amplifier design,
the 2000A delivers up to 1,500 watts of clean, noise-free power. Full automatic tuning
gives contesters an edge, by permitting lightning-quick bandswitching with exceptionally
low SWR. Advanced digital features provide full control via PC when plugged into the
2000A’s RS232 port. An optional module lets you turn the amplifier on and off remotely.

1,500 Watt
HF+6M Linear Amplifier
It’s more than just a pretty face; the A1500 covers all the HF bands and 6 meters with
incredibly low distortion and noise figures. Large, smooth knobs combine with a sleek
LCD screen to make adjustments easy and quick. The A1500 boasts three antenna
outputs and nearly silent input bypass and antenna relays. Diagnostic data is stored in
one of seven nonvolatile memory banks.
AOM-1500
1,500 Watt HF Linear Amplifier........................................$3,989.95
700 Watt
HF Linear Amplifier
As long as the VSWR stays below 3:1, this amplifier lets you change between the 160
and 10 meter bands without using an external tuner. The A1010 can withstand up to
240 watts of reflected power, up to 100 milliseconds of drive spikes and deep voltage
drops. Its durability and front-panel controls make this amplifier an excellent choice.
AOM-1010
700 Watt HF Linear Amplifier...........................................$1,869.95
1,000 Watt
HF+6M Linear Amplifier
Automatic XCVR Commutator
Easy to operate and easy to maintain, ACOM’s A1000 is an extraordinary good value for
HF operators. You can switch bands without a tuner, provided VSWR stays below 3.1.
That gives you an edge during a contest scramble. Broadband input matching means
that your radio will always see a very good load across the entire 1.8-54 MHz spectrum.
Specially mounted relays deliver virtually silent QSK operation. This amplifier can also
withstand significant amounts of reflected power and signal fluctuations.

The 2S1 lets two transceivers use a common load, preventing
the radios from transmitting at the same time; but allowing
simultaneous reception. It was designed specifically to link
ACOM’s 2000S/SW antenna selector with its A2000 HF linear
amplifier, but it can be adapted for other applications. It’s fully
automatic and supports full break-in.

About RF Connectors
Many different types of coaxial RF connectors are used in laboratory and
radio-communications applications. The connectors listed here are the most
common types used by Amateur Radio operators:
Type N—This cable connector is found in many UHF and higher applications up
to about 10 GHz. It is designed to present constant impedance from end-to-end
of a length of transmission line. Most transmit and receive communications
applications use the 50 Ω version to match the impedance of commonly used
RF coaxial cables and equipment. The Type N has a threaded outer coupling to
ensure it mates positively and securely.
UHF—One of the first coaxial connectors, this is also known as a PL-259 (a carryover from an old military designation). The UHF designation has been applied
since the days when 30 MHz was considered UHF. The connector has an SO-239
socket and a threaded outer coupling to ensure that it mates positively and
securely.
The perceived drawback of the UHF connector is that it is not a true 50 Ω
connector, allowing a non-constant impedance connection. While this limits its
use to frequencies up to about 300 MHz, the UHF connector is an ideal, low-cost
solution for HF applications. Because the basic junction is simple, many
low-cost, low-quality versions are available.
DX Engineering has selected the best silver plated, PTFE insulated connectors to
assure the best performance for your HF, VHF and UHF applications.
Check out pages 118-121 for common Amateur Radio operator connectors.

Exhaust System
Grounding Kit
Many modern vehicles have
separate fuel injectors and
spark coils for each cylinder.
These units can create substantial
pulses on the vehicle wiring. Because the exhaust system is bolted directly to the engine
and supported by insulated mounts, it can be excited just like an antenna and radiate
pulse noise. By using one of our Exhaust Grounding Kits, you may eliminate that last bit
of stubborn noise in your mobile installation. The kit includes a stainless steel saddle
clamp and stainless steel hardware.

Ground Braid Assemblies
DX Engineering Ground Strap is available preassembled with lugs for both #10 and 1/4
inch bolt sizes. A grounding strap is ideal for grounding a rig, amp, etc. to a copper strip
running behind the desk; the strip becomes the central ground point for the equipment.
This central ground can be routed away with heavy copper strap to join any other
similarly protected branches for single point grounding (SPG) lightning protection.
Other possible uses include noise reduction by grounding a vehicle exhaust, establishing
a connection between a radial plate, balun and a vertical antenna to keep current off of
the feedline, and any grounding application where a reliable connection is needed.

CADWELD® Exothermic Welding System
The ideal way to secure a copper wire to a ground
rod is by welding it securely to the top. The problem
is, many of us don’t have easy access to a welder.
Erico’s CADWELD process lets you make copper-tocopper or copper-to-steel electrical connections
without the need for outside heat or power sources.
The result is a permanent bond that won’t loosen or ERO-T320
corrode over time.
Though it’s relatively straightforward, we strongly recommend that you read and
understand the CADWELD process before ordering.

Powermaster Battery Isolator
We’ve all been there: a busy Field Day or
DXpedition. You make plenty of contacts
while your gear sips a steady diet of
voltage from your car’s auxiliary battery.
When it’s time to leave—your car won’t start!
Using an auxiliary battery doesn’t always protect your primary
battery from draining. Powermaster’s Battery Isolator prevents this
unwanted drain. It ties your batteries together, allowing them both to charge from your
engine’s alternator. Since your auxiliary battery is isolated, it won’t drain the charge
from your primary battery in the event of excess load.
Use Powermaster’s Battery Isolator when you’re operating off your vehicle’s battery
power and keep yourself from being stranded.

Custom-made for DX Engineering, this high strength Type 6063-T832
seamless drawn aluminum tubing is available in 3 and 6 foot lengths.
Type 6063 alloy provides good resistance to general corrosion,
including stress corrosion cracking and has excellent surface
appearance.
Use the 3 foot lengths for fast taper, low-wind resistance
applications. The 6 foot slow taper lengths afford the
greatest bandwidth. Most sizes are slit on one end
for use with DX Engineering Stainless Steel Element
Clamps. If unslit ends are required for your application,
merely insert the slit end into the next larger size in the

Tower products and accessories. We
have the Rohn products you need
to solve your tower structural needs—contact us for
technical information and availability.
Rohn has been the world leader in tower design
and manufacturing for more than six decades. Rohn
maintains one of the largest manufacturing and staging
facilities in the industry—it is committed to supplying
the best.
Designed for areas where land cost or availability are
not an issue, Rohn G-series guyed towers provide one
of the most cost effective solutions in the industry.
Guyed towers install quickly and are often the choice
of broadcast communications tower stations and
backbone system providers.
All G-series towers are built with high strength steel
tubing that is hot-dip galvanized after fabrication.
Rohn’s exclusive Zig-Zag® solid rod bracing provides
exceptional strength.
All Rohn towers, poles and masts must be installed and
dismantled by trained personnel. See the Rohn manuals
and drawings for detailed information.

Genius Clamps
We weren’t very modest
when we named these
clamps. But if you’ve ever
struggled to mount a
horizontal cross bar to a
piece of vertical tubing, then
you’d probably call these “Genius!”
Clamps, too. They’re the ideal way
to create a tower standoff to
side-mount an extra antenna.
These clamps are sized for 1 to
2 inch OD pipe, in both horizontal
and vertical orientation. The clamps
are made of stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance.

include hardware. Hex bolt fasteners for Genius Clamps are available separately; select the
sizes you need in the table nearby. The sets include 8 full-thread bolts or rods, 16 nuts, 8 flat
washers and 8 split washers. The thread is 5/16"-18.

FREE DX Engineering Mast Load Estimator
If you’re designing a tower installation, visit
DXEngineering.com and use the free online Mast Load
Estimator. First decide if you’re using a 2" or 3" OD mast
and then enter its overall height. Next, add up to five
antennas, with their height from the tower top and wind load area. The Mast Load
Estimator will calculate if your configuration will work. It’s totally free and you’ll only find
it at DXEngineering.com. Check out the video online.

Bearing Bypass Ground Kits
When lightning hits your tower,
the first place that massive energy
jumps through is the mast thrust
bearing. That’s bad news for the
thrust bearing but worse news for
you. Replacing it means removing
your antennas—a process that is
both time-consuming and really,

These kits use heavy-gauge, flexible
cable to safely guide lightning energy away from the thrust bearing and down your
tower to ground. They’re easy to install and cheap insurance against a costly repair.

You’ve got a lot of money invested in your mast and antenna,
and you’ve selected reliable guy line—now the weak link in
mast stability could literally be your links! Gripple is an industry leader in wire joiners
and tensioners, offering professional-grade products that have been fully vetted in
practically every environment on Earth. When it comes time to erect your mast, don’t
overlook the importance of having the right tools and grips for the job.
Lockable Guy Line Grip and Key
As an easy way to assemble and re-tension your 1/8"
EHS guy line, you can use these grips and keys to
terminate cable and keep it secure. The Grip’s
innovative design uses external pressure to lock the
cable in place until you use the key to release it, making them
easy to install and adjust. They’re tailored to .125" (3mm) guy lines.
The Lockable Release Keys are a must for re-tensioning cables and removing the
grips. You just inset the key and push; the internal wedges are released and the
grip is free. Choose from the ergonomically designed Logo Key or the high-visibility

Our stainless steel V-clamps are ideal for
mounting accessories to steel pipe. The
V-saddle has serrations that bite into the
tube or pipe surface, providing a strong,
secure hold. For this reason, these
clamps are not recommended for
aluminum tubing or pipe. The bolts
supplied are long enough to attach
tubing to thick plates and have
anti-corrosive properties for
long life. Some clamps are available

Stainless Steel Element Clamps
Typical elements are built using 0.058 inch
wall tubing, which allows successive sizes
to slide together with good contact. These
clamps are used to hold the telescoping
tubing in place at the length that you have
chosen. Clamps are made from marinegrade stainless steel, unlike the normal hardware store
variety. The high nickel alloy stainless steel meets the
demands of severe corrosive environments.

Highest Quality—Lasting Performance!
DX Engineering is famous for its Saddle Clamps,
the ones with stainless steel U-bolts or V-bolts and
matching cast aluminum saddles. The U-bolts are the
exact size for inch-sized tubing OD; the saddles feature
an as-cast roughness that keeps the tube from sliding.
Our Super Duty and Heavy Duty Saddle Clamps are
designed for applications where maximum torque is
needed to control large or unbalanced antenna arrays,
or for other applications where other torque control
products have proven inadequate. Our Resin Support
Blocks are useful for securely mounting tubing to any
flat surface while providing electrical insulation.

DX Engineering U-Bolt Saddle Clamps
Unlike common hardware store clamps that are sized to fit pipe, our clamps are designed and sized to fit tubing.
The U-Bolt Saddle Clamps come with high strength, 18-8 grade stainless steel U-bolts that are long enough to attach
tubing or components to thick mounting plates. The U-bolts are available in 1/4 inch, 5/16 inch and 3/8 inch as listed.
Note that the 2 inch, 2.5 inch and 3 inch clamps are available with either 5/16 inch or 3/8 inch U-bolts.
The U-Bolt Saddle Clamp saddles are cast from high strength 535 aluminum, which has superior anti-corrosion
properties. Unlike stamped or machined types, the saddles’ rippled surface grips tubing closely for a secure fit.
The U-Bolt Saddle Clamps are designed for use with mounting plates, which are available separately.
The clamps are sold only as a set with aluminum saddle, stainless steel U-bolts, nuts, flat washers and
lock washers.
The use of a lubricant and sealant, such as Jet Lube SS-30 (JTL-2555), is highly recommended to achieve proper torque
and prevent galling. DX Engineering sells replacement U-bolts with hardware kits.

Saddle clamps must be used on a flat surface or customer
supplied backing plate. Personal injury and property damage
can occur without proper installation. Always use a lubricant
such as Never-Seez® or Anti-Seize to prevent the stainless
steel hardware from seizing.
DX Engineering Clamps
Have Hundreds of Uses!
DX Engineering U-Bolt, V-Bolt, and Band Clamps are very
versatile. For example, we’ve seen the ECLS Studded
Band Clamps used to fasten merchandise display signs
to upright tubing. Have you used DX Engineering clamps
for other, non-antenna projects? We’d love to know about
it—drop us a note and send pictures if you have them!
Suggested Hole Size: 0.266" is letter “H” drill bit, 0.332" is letter “Q” drill bit, and 0.397" is letter “X” drill bit. All U-Bolts are formed from premium 18-8 stainless steel.
All Saddles are cast 535 aluminum. All Saddle Clamp Sets are supplied with 18-8 stainless steel nuts and lock washers. Dimensions shown are in inches. Note: These are NOT Automotive Muffler Clamps.
DX Engineering V-Bolt Saddle Clamps
Incorrect
Our V-Bolt Saddle Clamps are sized to fit ranges of tubing. The V-bolts are long enough
to attach tubing or components to thick plates and are highly corrosion-resistant.
The V-Bolt Saddle Clamps are intended for use with a backing plate or mounting plate to
retain the bolt spacing. The saddles’ rippled surface will clamp tubing securely to a flat surface.
Features
• 18-8 stainless steel V-bolts with nuts, flat washers and lock washers
• Cast aluminum saddles with rippled surface
• Available in a number of size ranges
Tubing Recommendations
DXE-CAVS-1P: fits 1/2 inch to 1 3/4 inch OD tubing, 1/4"-20 bolt
DXE-CAVS-11P: fits 1/2 inch to 1 3/4 inch OD tubing, 5/16"-18 bolt
DXE-CAVS-2P: fits 1 inch to 2 inch OD tubing, 5/16"-18 bolt
DXE-CAVS-3P: fits 2 inch to 3 inch OD tubing, 3/8"-16 bolt
The clamps are sold only as a set with aluminum saddle, stainless steel V-bolts, nuts, flat washers and lock washers.
The use of a lubricant and sealant, such as Jet Lube SS-30 (JTL-2555), is highly recommended to achieve proper
torque and prevent galling. For high torque load applications where the tubing is subjected to twisting motion, we
recommend using our U-Bolt Saddle Clamps.

Super Duty Saddle Clamps
Super Duty Saddle Clamps are perfect for building large
Yagi or LPDA antennas (where maximum strength is
critical). These clamps attach to the tubing and establish
a secure mounting point for a flat plate or surface.
Super Duty Saddle Clamps provide maximum grip
on booms, masts and element tubing. Unlike stamped
or machined-type clamps, Super Duty clamps are cast
from rugged aluminum with a special textured surface to
grip the tubing. These new clamps mean you can choose
an exact size to create an incredibly secure fit that is
resistant to torque, wind and weather.
These clamps consist of two cast aluminum saddles and
a stainless steel reinforcement plate. Since there are many
uses for these clamps, we don’t include hardware. Our armor-coated bolt sets are
available separately. Typical Super Duty Clamp mounting applications on a 1/4" plate
require a minimum length bolt set.
Super Duty Saddle Clamps fit 2.00", 2.50" and 3.00" OD tubing. A thread lubricant and
anti-seize compound, like Jet-Lube SS-30, is highly recommended during installation.
Heavy Duty Saddle Clamps
Though designed for antenna building, these
budget-friendly Cycle 24 clamps can be the
perfect solution for any mounting, installation
or bracketing project. The clamps are made to
withstand decades of indoor and outdoor use.
Each clamp includes nuts, U-bolt and saddle.

If a design calls for typical saddle clamps but
you want something with more strength,
DX Engineering now offers a range of Heavy Duty
Saddle Clamps. They’re similar to the Super Duty
Saddle Clamps, only they’re available for smaller
diameter tubing and have the same footprint of
a standard saddle clamp. These new Heavy Duty
Saddle Clamps fit 0.75", 1.00", 1.25", 1.50", 1.75"
and 2.00" OD tubing. Find each clamp’s matching

DXE-BEP-4B
Insulated Boom-to-Element Brackets
DX Engineering offers insulated boom-to-element brackets to fit 1.75 inch, 2 inch and
3 inch booms. The non-metallic brackets electrically insulate the elements from the
boom, which virtually nullifies the shortening effect that the boom and the normal
metallic boom-to-element plates have on element length. This means the element
lengths determined through the use of commonly available antenna design programs
like YO, EZNEC and others will correspond more closely to the actual lengths needed. In
most cases, the cost of the boom-to-element brackets will be less than using a metallic
plate and the necessary saddle clamps.
DXE-BEB-1
DXE-BEB-1
The DXE-BEB-1 is used to replace KLM or equivalent
boom-to-element brackets or for any other application
where insulated elements are desired. This patented
DX Engineering bracket is made from a much stronger
material and has a vastly improved design. It is 5 times
as strong as the original brackets and allows use of up to
1.25 inch OD element tubing. Use the DXE-ELA-1-2
Element Adapters to use a 1 inch diameter element with the DXE-BEB-1.
The DXE-BEB-1 is designed to use DX Engineering’s Gorilla Grip® stainless steel boom
clamps that will end all of your concerns about elements rotating on the boom.
DX Engineering offers two hardware kits. The standard kit is a direct KLM hardware
replacement with #10 fasteners for the elements. It includes Gorilla Grip® stainless steel
boom clamps, stainless steel bolts with nuts and washers to attach clamps to the
DXE-BEB-1 element bracket, and stainless steel bolts with nuts and washers to attach
elements or adapters to the element brackets. The nuts have nylon inserts and are
vibration-resistant. The heavy-duty kit uses 1/4 inch bolts and hardware, so it is not a
direct replacement for KLM brackets, but is similar in all other respects to the standard
hardware kit.

These brackets are made for 3 inch OD booms only. For 2 inch booms, please use DXE-BEB-2.
DXE-BEB-2
The DXE-BEB-2 is made from an extremely strong
polymer that is also highly UV-resistant. When
bolted to your 2 inch boom with our hardware kit,
it will easily support a split 20 meter element without
a fiberglass centerpiece. It is a convenient, low-cost
DXE-BEB-2
method for the insulated attachment of elements
when building Yagi, LPDA or other antennas on
2 inch booms.
It accepts up to a 7/8 inch element, which is suitable
for antennas built for 6 meters up thru 20 meters with
reasonable wind survivability. For larger antennas,
please use our DXE-BEB-1 Boom-to-Element Bracket.
The DXE-BEB-2 comes in 2 pieces and bolts together with a DXE-BEB-2HWK Stainless
Steel Hardware Clamp Kit that also holds it securely to the boom. The hardware kit
includes four stainless steel bolts, washers and lock nuts that securely clamp the
element halves together, and a Gorilla Grip® stainless steel boom clamp with the
stainless steel bolts, nuts and washers that attach it to the element bracket. Nuts are
vibration-resistant with nylon inserts. DXE-BEB-2HWK Hardware Kit for the DXE-BEB-2
Bracket is sold separately. Larger antennas that experience high winds will require the
boom clamp to be pinned to the boom.

KX4O Vertical Dipole Antenna Support Plate
When John Huggins, KX4O designed his revolutionary
AHVD Vertical Dipole, he probably didn’t imagine that it
would become so popular. The unusual “upside-down T”
design delivers such impressive 20-10M coverage, that it’s
no surprise operators started building them. Let this plate
be the foundation of your build. The weather-resistant
0.25" thick polymer plate measures 11.5" x 7.5" and is
pre-drilled for easy assembly.

Boom-to-Element Plates
Boom-to-element plates are similar in
function to insulated boom-to-element brackets,
in that they each attach the elements to the boom.
The primary advantage of plates over brackets is that
it is a simple mechanical arrangement. The main
disadvantage is that the plate does not insulate the element
from the boom, which means that the element dimensions
that you bring from your antenna design program
(YO, AO, EZNEC and others) will be incorrect unless
you make some length adjustment for the width of the plate and boom.

Boom Support Parts
As antennas become larger, booms become
longer, or the wind speed becomes higher,
our 3 inch Boom Support Systems will keep
the boom straight. Your antenna will look
better, perform better and survive storms
in better shape. Many of the individual pieces
in these systems are available separately
so you can design and build your own
DXE-ATBB

Hairpin-Style Driven
Element Matching Kits
Most Yagi antennas have a feedpoint
impedance of about 25 Ω. Obviously,
this will not allow a connection to a 50 Ω
feedline without a serious mismatch.
There are various ways to match the
DXE-HMS-1P
driven element to the feedline successfully.
Gamma, T-Match and the Hairpin (aka Beta
Match) are favorites.
The Gamma match is an unbalanced
system that typically distorts the antenna

Gamma match systems on either side of

but is a mechanical nightmare and difficult
to tune correctly.
The DX Engineering Hairpin is balanced and easy to tune. It has the correct electrical
and mechanical design to allow it to be easily installed and tuned in 10 minutes, and has
enough capacity for almost any Yagi design. Complete your installation with elements,

Yagi Mechanical®
Antenna Design Software
Yagi Mechanical® is a tool for anyone who
designs their own antennas or is interested
in modeling an antenna they already own.
Electrical design is first and foremost in crafting a
useful antenna, but the mechanical side of things is
also critical. After all, what good is a great performing
antenna if the wind is going to break the elements
when you put it up on a tower?
DX Engineering’s Yagi Mechanical Antenna Design
Software enables you to analyze your designs and
instantly see where a failure could occur. Whether you
use it to find weak points in old designs or to start brand
new designs with robust mechanical properties, Yagi
Mechanical will provide you with the tools you need to test your
elements for wind and ice, to balance weight and torque on the boom,
and determine if the materials you have selected are up to the task.
Call it good planning for the kind of stress your antennas are going to see. Call it smart
design to prevent regular failures and repairs. Call it peace-of-mind at an affordable
price. We call it Yagi Mechanical!
Yagi Mechanical is a Windows® program, so the graphic user interface should be
very familiar.

Genius Clamps
We weren’t very modest when we named these clamps.
But if you’ve ever struggled to mount a horizontal
cross bar to a piece of vertical tubing, then you’d
probably call these “Genius!” Clamps, too. They’re
the ideal way to create a tower standoff to sidemount an extra antenna. These clamps are sized for
1 to 2 inch OD pipe, in both horizontal and vertical
orientation. The clamps are made of stainless steel
for superior corrosion resistance.

Commercial & Amateur Antenna Builders.
Highest Quality—Lasting Performance!
DX Engineering is famous for its Saddle Clamps—the ones with stainless steel
U-bolts or V-bolts and matching cast aluminum saddles. The U-bolts are the exact
size for inch-sized tubing OD; the saddles feature an as-cast roughness that keeps
the tube from sliding.
Our Super Duty Saddle Clamps are designed for applications where maximum
torque is needed to control large or unbalanced antenna arrays, or for other
applications where other torque control products have proven inadequate.
Our Resin Support Blocks are useful for securely mounting tubing to any flat surface
while providing electrical insulation.
Whether you are building a Yagi from scratch, refurbishing a well-used “old friend,”
or experimenting with a new antenna project, DX Engineering can supply the best
hardware for your application. You can find useful tips and complete dimensions for
each clamp and bracket type at DXEngineering.com.

Bencher’s Skyhawk and Skylark Antennas, plus Butternut® Antennas
are now part of DX Engineering.
For years, Amateur Radio operators have relied on these antennas for both HF contesting and DXing. Now, the
Skyhawk, Skylark, and every Butternut Antenna model are manufactured and sold exclusively by DX Engineering.
As two of the premier HF multi-band Yagis on the market, the DX Engineering Skyhawk and DX Engineering Skylark
both feature rugged construction and a relatively compact size. Butternut HF Multi-Band Vertical Antennas offer
excellent HF performance. All antennas deliver the perfect combination of performance and operating ease.
DX Engineering also carries all the service, repair, and replacement parts you’ll need to keep these antennas
in excellent condition.
Stack 2 and
Stack 3 Systems
COMTEK’s Stack 2 System lets you
select from two antennas, either
individually or simultaneously in order
to choose the best vertical radiation
angle for the band conditions. The
system is designed for 40-10 meter
tri-band, log periodic or monoband
Yagi antennas.
For even more selectivity, the COMTEK Stack 3
System gives you a broader range of signal arrival and
transmission angles. The system’s Yagi Array Switch Relay
Unit lets you choose from any single (or combination of)
three Yagi Beam Antennas. You can also use it to match
and switch a 3-monoband Yagi stacked array for any HF
band, covering 40-10 meters.
Operating the Stack 2 and 3 Yagi Array Switch Relay Units
is done via the Yagi Switch Control Consoles. Indicator
lights are intuitive and the controls are user-friendly.
The Control Consoles and Relay Units use 12 Vdc and
require 3-conductor control cable. The Relay Units
handle 3,000 watts.
The Stack 2 and Stack 3 Switch Control Consoles and
Relay Units are available separately or bundled together
into comprehensive, money-saving systems. With the
systems, you’ll just need control cable and the additional
coax phasing cable to complete your installation.

If you don’t have the space (or friendly neighbors) to
put up several VHF and UHF antennas, Create offers you
an uncompromising single antenna option. Using 21
elements, the wideband directional CLP-5130-1N gets
you on the 1.25, 2 and 6 meter bands, plus the 23, 33
and 70cm bands. It handles 500 watts and gives you an
average gain of 10 dBi. With a 6.66 foot boom length,
it’s compact enough to go almost anywhere and at
11 pounds, it’s perfect for most rotators. You can also
use this antenna for VHF/UHF TV, FM broadcast, aviation
and government communication applications. Create’s
CLP-5130-2N is similar to the 1N, except it provides 11 dBi
of gain and doesn’t offer coverage on the 6 meter band.

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

DX Engineering’s Hexxagonal Beam Mark II
antenna and related kits are based on the G3TXQ
design with a broadband, u-shaped reflector. That
means you’ll have better coverage of the 20, 17, 15, 12
and 10 meter bands with low SWR. These packages
are your ticket to a versatile, small and lightweight
directional HF beam antenna.
DX Engineering’s design offers better gain and improved front-to-back
performance with a lower SWR, and it uses our patented* stainless/
PTFE rigid balanced feedpoint system. The feedpoint system provides
balanced, 50 Ω connections to the wire elements, eliminating the
need for special waterproofing.
You can select from two complete kits for either single or multi-band
operation, or you can purchase each component separately to custom
build or retrofit an antenna to your unique specifications. *US Patent D624,060

DX-77A 7-Band Vertical
The Hy-Gain DX-77A is an omni-directional,
self-supporting, automatic-bandswitching vertical
radiator. It operates on the 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12
and 10 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.
HGN-DX-77A HGN-AV-18HT HGN-AV-640
The DX-77A uses a heavy-duty, tiltable mast clamp that accepts masts up to 2.125" OD
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 80 through 10 meters. 160 meter operation is possible with the addition of a
loading coil. The use of stub decoupling systems allows automatic band switching on
80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 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.

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 40, 20,
15 and 10 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.

6 Meter VHF Monoband Vertical Antenna
It’s an excellent 6M, 5/8-wave vertical antenna that delivers up to 6.4 dBi gain,
which makes it perfect for SSB operation. It’s got a full-size radiator with a
lower takeoff angle, which means the power is directed closer to the horizon
where you want it. Use the tuned radials at the antenna’s base to achieve
a bandwidth over 4 MHz and a SWR of 2:1 or less. This antenna also
has a shunt-fed matching system, which drains static to dramatically
reduce unwanted noise. The antenna stands about 8 feet tall and will
handle 300 watts.

Vertical Antennas
and Arrays
These rugged, affordable
quarter-wave antennas are
designed to be used in sets
to provide top performance
with phased vertical array
systems like the COMTEK
PVS 2-antenna systems
or COMTEK and
DX Engineering Four-Square
array controllers. The
COM-20VA antenna can be used on any single band
—20, 17, 15, 12 or 10 meters—by adjusting its length.
Constructed from 6063 aircraft-spec aluminum tubing,
these antenna taper from a huge base section. High
strength, UV-resistant EXTREN® insulators and a heavy
aluminum plate mounting base ensure long lasting,
reliable performance under adverse conditions. The antennas
come with V-saddle clamps for installation to your ground-mounted
pipe; 2" OD pipe is recommended, but the clamps will accept any size
from 1" to 2". Stainless steel hardware included. Light rope
guying is always recommended for phased systems to keep spacing
precise and minimize swaying.

The Hustler BTV antenna series delivers great
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 offers the lowest loss possible.
Hustler BTV series antennas are a
quarter-wave-trapped vertical design that
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.

Vertical Stealth Antennas
Here is a pair of antennas ideal for any operator who wants
VHF/HF coverage, yet doesn’t have the space to put up
multiple antennas. They combine a low height and a small footprint,
which means they can blend easily into a stand of trees and bushes. That
makes these antennas a possible solution for HOA restricted operators.
The 1799 is a highly efficient end-loaded 1/2-wave vertical that covers
the 80 to 2 meter bands, yet retains a 7' footprint and an overall height of
about 20'. It uses no radials, traps or moving parts, and boasts automatic
bandswitching and a low radiation angle.
For 40-10M operation, the 1795 stands just 10' high and uses a highquality HF loading system for excellent omnidirectional performance. A
proper radial system is required for both ground and roof mounting.
The 1799 handles 1,500 watts, while the 1795 handles 1,250 watts.

Multi-Band High-Performance
43 Foot Vertical Antenna Packages
With SAF-T-TILT™ Base
If you want to work DX, but don’t have the real estate for
an antenna farm, these packages are an excellent solution. They deliver exceptional multi-band performance
with a compact size and attractive price. These easy to
setup, easy to use packages cover the entire HF band,
from 160 to 10 meters.
The rugged 43' antenna employs a free-standing,
fast taper design that can survive winds up to 92
mph. It’s made from 6063-T832 drawn aluminum
and features stainless steel hardware for excellent
corrosion resistance. Each package below includes the
DX Engineering’s exclusive patented SAF-T-TILT™ base,
which lets you safely raise and lower your antenna
for service.
The MBVE-5A antenna requires DX Engineering’s UN-43
UNUN and a wide-range tuner. You’ll also need 150' of
RG-213 cable, sold separately. For optimum results, we
recommend a good ground radial system (32 radials,
each 32' to 65' long). You can get by with fewer radials
with diminished performance.
We’ve created kits that bundle together some of the
essential components. A brief summary is below;

Antennas: Radial Systems
Radial Plate
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 OD, 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 OD.
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.

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 specific 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 OD 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-SSVC-2P V-Bolt Saddle Clamps to complete the installation.

Radial Wire Staples
There is no need to bury your radials
for performance. DX Engineering
Radial Wire Staples are perfect for
fastening radials on the ground
below the grass to eliminate the risk
of damaging your radials during lawn
maintenance. The radials disappear

Radial Wire Metal Staple
into the lawn within weeks.
The low-cost metal staples now have a biodegradable counterpart. The “BD” suffix
indicates a pack of 3 inch biodegradable anchors made from recycled PLA (Polylactide
Resin). Depending on weather conditions, they will degrade in a year or two. They are
easily installed and will hold radial wires in place until lawn roots overtake them—and
then the staples disappear. Ecologically friendly.

DX Engineering Vertical Antenna Matching Network
Without a means of adjusting feedpoint impedance, achieving
the best SWR on 160, 80 and 40 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 band without affecting operation on the other,
higher frequency bands (if applicable). This
Vertical Antenna Shunt Matching Network can
be used on resonant 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, even outdoors.

4 Directions plus Omni
DXE-DVA-40-P
DXE-DVA-160-P
DX Engineering TFS4 Series B Transmit Four-Square Systems bring together the highest
level of engineering excellence with the practical realities of operator convenience and
ease of installation. They’re available for the 160, 80 and 40 meter bands, and can be
easily dropped-in to your quarter wave spaced vertical 4-antenna array for optimum
directional control.
The systems allow you to receive or transmit with 5.5 dB gain in any one of four
directions with a 20+ dB front-to-back ratio for interference reduction from unwanted
directions. You can also switch to a single Omni-directional pattern with a push of a
button. That means you’ll be able to listen “all-around,” unhindered by pattern nulls,
and then select the best direction for signal reception and noise rejection.
The TFS4 Series B Transmit Four-Square Systems are designed for use with a four
monoband vertical antennas spaced at the corners of a square that are a one quarter
wavelength on a side. The vertical antennas must be ungrounded and resonant in the
desired band, and should be directly base-fed by the coaxial cable phasing lines from
the centrally located controller. DX Engineering has vertical antennas that are well suited
for this application. A properly designed and installed radial system is necessary for top
antenna performance.
We recommend our optional Q75-series quarter wavelength cables. They’re
electronically pruned to a precise electrical length tailored to your operating frequency.
The cables are terminated with hand-soldered silver-PTFE PL-259 connectors and
weather-sealed with shrinkable tubing. Finally, each cable is tested for high voltage
breakdown for maximum reliability and power handling. Since the transmit power is
divided by the controller, the coaxial cable can handle maximum power with ease.
If you already have a four-square array with a hybrid controller and would like
improved performance and add the Omni feature, the DX Engineering TFS4 Series B
Transmit Four-Square Systems are a simple upgrade. BCD logic switching allows for
the use of a 4-wire control cable to perform the necessary switching functions when
powered by the included DXE-CC-4SQR control console.
• Classic Hybrid design for easy installation
• 5 kW CW power rating for high reliability
• Hot switching lock-out feature disables amplifier while switching
• Simple upgrade for COMTEK SYSTEMS four-square array

Receiver Guard 5000HD and Receiver Guard 5000
Protect your sensitive receiver front-end against high levels of RF from nearby transmit
signals. A DX Engineering Receiver Guard is the best limiter device to choose if your
receive antenna input could be subjected to high levels of RF. They are a must for
contesting stations and are useful for all stations, for Field Day, SWLs and when a
neighbor or passing mobile generates potentially damaging peaks of RF.
Extensively tested and proven in real-world stations, now DX Engineering offers
two Receiver Guards, to provide automatic protection for every receive equipment
application:
• The new DXE-RG-5000HD works for all radios and offers the ultimate performance
required by the upper tier of transceivers tested to have the best narrow-spaced
third-order dynamic range or published RMDR (Reciprocal Mixing Dynamic Range).
These transceivers include Elecraft K3 series, FlexRadio 6700, 5000A and 3000, Icom
IC-7851, Kenwood TS-990S and 590S(G), TenTec Orion series, Yaesu FTdx-5000 series,
and other radios with similar performance.
• The original DXE-RG-5000 offers excellent dynamic range and performance
characteristics to cover the capabilities of all other transceivers and receivers.
At the heart of each Receiver Guard is a highly effective electronic RF limiter covering
500 kHz to 150 MHz with an insertion loss under 0.15 dB at 50 MHz and under 0.3 dB to
150 MHz. Their multi-stage design includes a gas discharge tube for maximum pulse
energy protection. These are passive electronic limiters, not filters, so competitive
contesting stations still use separate band filters. Receiver Guard limiters can reject 10
watts of catastrophic receive antenna feedline RF while passing a signal of about 87 dB
over S-9, which is only 25 mw! That level is well under the point of front-end damage.
When there are high levels of RF on your receive antennas, DX Engineering’s Receiver
Guards generate far less harmonic noise than other limiters on the market, which allows
your station to continue to operate safely and competitively. At normal HF signal levels
Receiver Guard operates continuously with no effect on the performance of your station
while providing the best possible protection for your radio.

DXE-RPA-1PLUS
Receive Preamplifiers
DXE-RPA-1
DX Engineering has introduced a new deluxe version of the respected RPA-1 receive
preamplifier. Dubbed the RPA-1PLUS, this new model features BNC connectors, a power
switch with LED indicator, and a positive-capture power connector with a threaded
sleeve to eliminate accidental disconnection.
RPA-1 series preamplifiers achieve specs matched only by top-tier transceivers. They
enhance weak signal reception without excess noise. Optimized to cover the entire
300 kHz to 35 MHz range, their robust components handle high signal levels with a
dynamic range that is better than most receivers. Their push-pull design virtually
eliminates harmonic distortion. An internal signal relay bypasses the preamp circuit
when power is removed.

DXE-RPA-1
Original Receive Preamplifier, 300 kHz-35 MHz ................ $143.95
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 F connector.
DX Engineering sells quality 75 Ω coax and F connectors for outdoor installations.

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 160, 80
and 40M 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-RBSA-1P 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
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 with F connectors
• Metal housings used for superior shielding and improved life

Active Magnetic
Loop HF Receiving
Antenna
Pixel Technologies changed its name, not its famous
antenna design. Now called InLogis, the company’s
38 inch diameter loop antenna covers 100 kHz to 30 MHz
and gives you excellent broadband reception of MF and
HF signals.
The loop responds primarily to the magnetic field and
ensures high rejection of nearby electrostatic field
(power line) noise. Enhancing the deep nulls of the antenna’s directivity pattern further
reduces interference. The antenna can be positioned to null out or reduce interference
coming from a specific direction or for added versatility, you can mount it with a light
duty antenna rotator to control the null characteristics.
It requires no manual tuning and offers up to 30 dB rejection over electrostatic field
antennas. This antenna performs well in both strong and weak signal environments. It
can be installed at ground level, or on a pole, mast or any flat surface. A 30 dB low-noise
preamp is included.

DXE-ARAV3-1P
Active Receive Antenna Systems
DX Engineering’s Active Receive Antenna Systems offer
excellent receiving performance using 102" whip elements.
The unique design is vastly superior to traditional active
antennas in both signal handling and feedline decoupling.
You get significantly better weak signal reception.
Available in ground mount vertical or horizontal dipole
for elevated installations, these 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-1A 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 .
• Sensitive—weak signal sensitivity rivaling full size antennas
• Wide frequency coverage—100 kHz to 30 MHz
• Excellent strong signal handling—outstanding third order intercept of +30 dBm
• Reduced noise—quiet FET followers and high feedline shield isolation
• Easy mounting and installation—pre-drilled mounting plate and universal clamps

Receive Feedline Current Choke
Splitter/Combiner
The Receive Feedline Current Choke (RFCC) is the
most effective solution to common-mode 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.
DXE-RFCC-1
Receive Feedline Current Choke, 50/75 Ω, 0.3-30 MHz ..............$78.95
Use this to combine two receiving antennas to form an array or to split the signal from an

Receive 8 Circle Packages
DX Engineering Receive 8 Circle Arrays 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
narrow-band, 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.

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 DX Engineering Active Receive Antennas, which have an internal relay to
ground 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.

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 dramatically 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
NCC-1 Phasing Unit Specifications

SVP-SV-PP160RBOG
Reversible Beverage-On-Ground
Antenna Systems
Here is an exciting adaptation of the Beverage and Beverage-On-Ground receive
antennas. Known as an RBOG (Reversible Beverage-On-Ground), a TWO conductor
insulated wire is placed onto or slightly in the ground. The effects of the Earth allow
160 meter reception to be optimized using only 160' to 200' wire length.
These antennas exhibit very low noise and low signal level reception, but with very good
signal to noise ratios. RBOG antennas make it easier to work stations that you typically
cannot hear on noisier transmit antennas. Plus, they require far less real estate for
installation than above ground Beverage antennas and they require no supports.
RBOG Reversible Beverage-On-Ground Antenna Transformers
These RBOG Transformers are corrosion resistant and sealed feedpoint and reflection
units built with stainless steel hardware and isolated-ground connections. RBOG
transformers are easily installed with twisted military phone wire, the same as the
KD9SV Two-Direction Beverage antenna. Each transformer is connected to independent
ground rods. The feedpoint transformer has two F connectors for 75 Ω coaxial cables
that run to the station.

RBOG Antenna Transformers ...................................... $139.95
RBOG Reversible Beverage-On-Ground Preamp and Directional Controls
Here is the introduction of KD9SV Products’ new desktop units that include the new
Top Band pHMET FET Preamplifiers as well as a handy Directional Control system.
They provide the required two antenna connectors and one output connector, plus a
front panel switch to change direction of reception on your KD9SV RBOG Reversible
Beverage-On-Ground Antenna System (or other two-direction Beverage antenna).
A built-in bypass relay allows the connected receiving antenna to be used on other
bands. These units feature the same Top Band pHMET FET enhanced-gain ultra-low
noise Preamplifiers developed by KD9SV for the requirements of single direction
Beverage on Ground antennas (BOGs). When used with KD9SV Products’ SVP-SV-RBOG
Reversible Beverage-On-Ground Antenna Transformers, these preamplifier and
directional switch units will help you receive 160 meter weak signals with far less noise,
taking advantage of the extraordinary signal-to-noise ratios offered by BOG antennas.

FET Preamplifiers
Improve your Top Band reception with a new
preamplifier specifically designed low signal
level antennas! KD9SV Products introduces
this completely new preamplifier design for
160 meters. Ultra-low noise pHEMT FETs
in a push-pull source follower circuit and a
tuned input provide the best 1.8 to 2 MHz performance available for very low signal
receive antennas. These band-pass filtered preamps reduce broadcast interference and
intermodulation products that cause difficulties on Top Band. Plus, a built-in bypass
relay allows the connected receiving antenna to be used on other bands.
Featuring components with rated noise figures as low as 0.4 dB and typical gain of
20 dB, these preamps have the extra capability required for small loops and are perfect
for single-wire Beverage-on-Ground Antennas (BOGs). These preamplifiers have also
been used successfully with flag and pennant type receiving antennas. F connectors
allow easy connection to 75 ohm receive system cables.

Stealth Antenna (ATSA)

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

Relief Brackets
Ensure that your antenna system is operating optimally. These
units have perfected the unbalanced-to-balanced transition,
giving you the strongest signal your antenna is capable of
producing in both transmit and receive situations. In addition to
increased performance and coverage, these baluns reduce the
electrical stress on your expensive equipment.
They cover the 1.8 to 30 MHz frequency range and offer increased
operating bandwidth compared to other baluns. The baluns
use ceramic insulators, stainless steel hardware and PTFE/silver
SO-239 connectors.
Depending on the application each balun is housed in either a
lightweight, formed aluminum enclosure for basic outdoor use
or in a cast aluminum gasketed enclosure suitable for extreme
environments.
Mounting your balun or choke
is only part of the equation—
you still need to make sure
your coaxial cables are secure and
free from the stress of gravity. Our
Cable Strain Relief Brackets will help
prevent the cable from pulling from
your PL-259 connector.

Baluns, UNUNs & Chokes
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 or copper strap.
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 OD

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, multi-frequency and folded
dipole, doublet and inverted-vee,
off-center fed, Windom, Zepp, long
wires, rhombic, vee beam and
loop antennas.
DXE-UWA213-KIT
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, UVprotected 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. DXE-UWA-KIT 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.

Antennas: Wire, Guying & Support Rope
Antenna Support
and Guy Line Ropes
Specifically designed for guying and support, Mastrant ropes
come in several sizes and strength ratings. They’re perfect for
wire antennas, supporting Yagi booms and elements, as well as
guying verticals and antenna masts. These non-conductive
ropes are made from synthetic fibers that won’t collect
moisture or suffer from UV degradation.
All rope comes in a 328 foot/100 meter roll, and popular selections are now available
in 100 foot/30 meter roll. You can choose from two different rope types: the standard
Mastrant-P or the stronger Mastrant-M.
BMT-DX-OCF
BMT-DX-OCF
Multi-Band Off-Center
Fed Dipole HF Antennas
Using a “keep it simple” approach,
Buckmaster OCF Multi-Band HF Antennas
offer exceptional performance with
anvil-like reliability. The efficient off-center
fed dipole design, combined with the use
of high-quality components, contributes
to the antennas’ ability to provide years of
trouble-free operating.
The permanently sealed center insulator houses either a 300 or 3,000 watt potted balun,
secured by a 1/4 inch stainless steel eyebolt. Each antenna is shipped fully assembled.
DX Engineering also carries the support rope and coaxial cable you need to complete
your installation.

EZH-EZHSSK1
Wire Antenna Hanging Tools
No more ladders, no more climbing trees—these durable wire antenna launching tools
make it easy for you to hang your antenna from the safety of terra firma. In addition to
heavy lead weights, they use tennis ball weights; so you won’t damage anything if your
aim is a bit off.
The Square Shot has a 300 foot spool of 10-pound-test line, an EZ winder with 500
feet of 155-pound-test line, and an easy hang custom band set. The Hyper Shot takes
everything included with the Square Shot, and dials up enough power to clear trees up
to 100 feet high!
Make sure to check local laws regarding slingshots before you pull back the band on an
EZ Hang kit.

Multi-Band Mobile Antennas
Combine incredible frequency coverage in a rugged package, and you get these
versatile antennas from Comet. You can make SWR adjustments independently and
achieve SWR levels lower than a single-band antenna.
A fold-over hinge is included with both models, handy for low overhangs, and they have
a PL-259 connector. Available in quad-band and six-band models, these antennas are a
great option if you want extended mobile coverage without turning your vehicle’s roof
into an antenna farm.

Mounting - There are pros and cons of every antenna
mounting location. A glass mount can be removed
without leaving a trace, but may compromise antenna
gain. Drilling a hole in your roof is the best call for
performance, but then…you’ll have a hole in your roof.
In fact, simply moving your antenna from the front to the
back of your vehicle can drastically affect your signal.
Don’t hesitate to call us for advice—we have mounting
solutions for any installation.

Imagine: One antenna, ALL HF bands—plus 6
meters. Available with a UHF mount or a 3/8"-24
stud mount, these antennas are your answer for a
comprehensive mobile HF setup. They run off your
vehicle’s 12 Vdc system and allow you to move
from band-to-band with the flick of a switch. The
SD330 antenna also provides excellent SWR and
can handle 200 watts PEP.
These antennas stand over 73 inches tall and weigh
2.5 pounds, so make sure your vehicle can handle
the size. The kits include the antenna, motor, switch
and wiring harness.

An antenna analyzer is an essential tool for the Amateur Operator, especially if you experiment with antennas. They
measure SWR, inductance, reactance and other important parameters. Why is that important? Those readings allow
you to tune your antennas for minimum SWR, to help your station operate at peak efficiency.
Of course, you could test your antennas using your your transceiver’s built-in SWR meter, but that requires a lot of
on-air troubleshooting and won’t show all the parameters an analyzer is capable of. An antenna analyzer makes the
antenna adjustment process easier and quicker. If you have questions, contact us—we’ll be glad to help out.

You wouldn’t use a butter knife
as a screwdriver, so don’t use a
hair dryer as a heat gun.
With an adjustable range of 250 to 1,100 degrees F and a 2-speed
motor, the HG-001VT is perfect for hobbyists. ECG also makes a
Miniature Heat Gun, great for installing heat shrink tubing into tight
chassis or near cramped PCBs. The Mini Heat Gun has a two-speed
motor and a working temperature range of about 480 to 660 degrees F.
For more frequent use, get an Industrial Grade ECG Heat Gun. They boast an adjustable air
intake, a sturdy toggle switch, replaceable motor brushes and a six-foot heavily shielded

cables have the distinct
advantage of automatically sealing small
accidental cuts or lacerations of the jacket.
Flooding also prevents shield contamination
and allows the cable to be direct-buried. This
low-loss cable features dual shields and an
85% velocity factor.
We recommend using Snap-N-Seal®
connectors to ensure a high quality,
weather resistant feedline connection.
The proper tools must be used to install
these connectors.

Next Generation
Crimp/Solder UHF Male Connectors
Taking a “better mousetrap” approach, DX Engineering designed a revolutionary new
Next Generation PL-259 connector. It combines the best qualities of solder and crimp
technologies for unparalleled reliability and the lowest loss. The crimp shield provides
a 360° electro-mechanical connection, while the hand-soldered center pin ensures
superior RF continuity. The connector features a silver-plated shell, body and center pin.
A double-knurled body surface makes the PL-259 easier to install, too. It’s a must-have
crimp-style PL-259 for any coaxial cable, especially coax cables that use foil shields.
These are the same connectors found on all DX Engineering pre-made cable assemblies DXE-PL259CS8X-6
equipped with a PL-259. They’re absolutely essential in creating the lowest-loss
connection possible.

RG-6/U 75 Ω Quad-Shield Coaxial Cable
We consider this RG-6/U the “Cadillac” of coaxial cable.
With a velocity factor of 83%, it’s perfect for Ham Radio,
including your Beverage, magnetic loop,
and active/passive receive antenna
system. The cable also works quite
well for broadcast TV and FM
radio, CATV/CCTV and audio/
video distribution applications.
Our RG-6/U coaxial cable has
a gas-injected polyethylene
foam dielectric, which makes
the cable flexible and
resistant to moisture. The
18 AWG center conductor is
copper-clad steel for improved
durability. As the name implies,
it has two foil shields, plus two
additional aluminum braids, creating
four levels of RF shielding. The jacket is
UV protected for outside runs.
The cable is available in 1,000' spools, by
the foot for custom lengths and in premade
assemblies. Visit DX Engineering for more

From broken continuity to
an impedance mismatch, a
faulty bulkhead connector
can introduce several problems into your station. To solve
these issues, DX Engineering has designed a 50 Ω bulkhead
SO-239 connector that is leaps-and-bounds better than
ordinary varieties. For starters, it’s silver plated to promote
excellent RF continuity. Plus, this connector has a solid
PTFE dielectric at its midpoint, which helps maintain
consistent impedance and connectivity. It handles
frequencies from DC to 500 MHz.
The connector is an excellent complement to
DX Engineering’s patented Radial Plate, and many other
bulkhead-mount applications. Sold as a kit, the connector
includes a set of four stainless steel bolts, nylon locking
nuts, star washers and flat washers.
