The AV-14AVQ 18 foot radiator has a loading coil at its base that allows precision antenna resonating. The AV-18VS may be installed on a short 1-5/8 inch dimeter mast driven in the ground. It is also ideal for shortwave listening. You can also roof mount this antenna with the optional AV-14RMQ roof mounting kit.
The Hy-Gain 14AVQ/WB-S is an omnidirectional, self-supporting, vertical radiator that operates in the 10, 15, 20, and 40 meter amateur bands. The system will work against earth ground or a resonant radial system when mounted above ground. You can make your own radial system following the manual, or use the Hy-Gain 14RMQ Radial System Kit available at your Hy-Gain dealer.
The antenna can be used for either Phone or CW with either a ground or roof mount. It can also be tuned to mid-band for use with either Phone or CW. In either case, the SWR band widths of the antenna are broad enough that the antenna will operate at an SWR of 2:1 or less from 10 to 40 meters. The 14AVQ/WB-S is supplied with stainless steel hardware and element clamps for all electrical and most mechanical connections.
