ABBREE HF-3 Multi-Band HF VHF (80m-6m) 3.5-50MHz Wideband Ham Amateur Mobile Radio Telescopic Antenna Review
I recently purchased the High Quality Wideband Portable Mobile Antenna and it has transformed my radio experience. The product stood out in terms of quality, performance, and usability.
One of the pros of this antenna is its capability to cover almost all HF bands, such as frequencies from 3.5-50 MHz, covering everything from 80 Meters to 6 Meters (80M / 40M / 30M / 20M / 17M / 15M / 12M / 10M / 6M ). This wide range ensures that users can connect to a variety of bands without any hassle.
In addition, I appreciated the versatility provided by the 9-section socket length of telescopic whip for fine adjustment. This feature enabled me to easily change the frequency band by inserting the wire lead into the appropriate socket on the base coil. This offers the convenience to switch from one band to another seamlessly.
The antenna also has a maximum power capacity of 200 Watts, which is quite impressive. This ensures that the antenna can withstand high levels of power, reducing the risk of damage and ensuring longevity.
The antenna’s length is approximately 180 cm (70.87 inches), making it long enough for optimum signal reception. This length, in conjunction with its weight of just 0.87KG, ensures the antenna remains stable and less prone to toppling over. The package included an entire set of the 3.5-50 MHz Antenna as shown in the picture.
However, there are a few cons to consider. Even though the antenna purports a high power capacity, users may need to be careful not to exceed this as it can result in overheating, reducing its lifespan. Given the length of the antenna, it might also be bulky for some cleaning or installing on a portable device.
Overall, this High Quality Wideband Portable Mobile Antenna is great value for money. Its versatility and high-quality design make it a solid choice for those active in the radio field. Users, however, should take note of potential issues relating to its physical dimensions and power handling capabilities.
