The AV-18HT features automatic band selection achieved through a unique stub decoupling system which effectively isolates various sections of the antenna so that an electrical 1/4 wavelength (or odd multiple of a 1/4 wavelength) exists on all bands. Approximately 250 kHz bandwidth at 2:1 VVSWR on 80 Meters. With the addition of a base loading coil (LC-160Q) it also provides exceptional 160 Meters performance. Includes all stainless steel hardware and til-over base. Unity gain on 20, 40, 80; 2 dB on 10/15 Meters.
