These whips are longer in length -- nearly 10 feet overall! This is an additional 4 feet extra over the standard whips. Used with our Buddipole the overall length of the antenna increases from 16 feet to 24 feet. This additional length increases bandwidth and efficiency, particularly on 40 meters.
As with all of our whips, the base sections feature a double set of crimps which prevents the base section from breaking out under the stress of deploying the antennas in a horizontal configuration. We worked with the manufacturer to minimize sag and the results speak for themselves!
Collapsed length is 21" (same as our antenna arms -- see photo). Extended length is 9.5 feet. Threads are 3/8" x 24.
Available in black color only.

Price is for quantity 1 each.
New Item -- we now have knurled base sleeves for the standard and long telescopic whips. These sleeves dramatically increase the strength of the base section and really help to prevent the base from working loose from repeated stress resulting from windy conditions and horizontal deployments. The knurled bases are threaded into place and can be removed and used with other whips in the future. They have the added benefit of making it much easier to thread on/off the whip from the coil, especially in cold conditions!
