The DX-88 offers coverage of all the HF amateur bands. The key design feature that makes the DX-88 this flexible is the adjustable capacitors that eliminate many of the tuning problems with other verticals. 80 and 40 meters can even be tuned from the ground without having to lower the antenna. The DX-88 handles maximum legal power on all bands, features low-loss traps and has a low angle of radiation for good DX performance. The self-supporting DX-88 comes with stainless steel hardware for long term reliability and will withstand 75 mph winds without damage. Any vertical antenna works better with a ground system and the DX-88 is no exception. Surprisingly good performance using just a ground rod can be expected, but ground radial kits (the GRK-88 and roof radial kits (the RRK-88) are available for maximum performance. The DX-88 is supplied with a detailed manual and comes with a two year limited warranty. There is also an optional 160 Meter Add-on Kit (the KIT-160-88). The 160 Meter add-on kit should be used with a ground mount only.
