Broadband Tri-Band Beam, covers 10/15/20 Meters. EXP-14 has a unique Para-sleeve concept that optimizes edge-to-edge bandwidth.
The Hy-Gain Explorer 14 is a very unique 4-element, three band beam antenna designed for
broadband, high performance, high efficiency
operation on the Amateur 10, 15, and 20 meter
The boom length of 14 feet 11/2 inches
(4.17 m) and a longest element of 31 feet 6 inches
(9.6 m) combine for a modest 17 foot 3 inch
turning radius, small enough for most city lots.
Broadbanding is accomplished through the use of
a monoband reflector on 10 meters, a duoband
reflector on 15 and 20 meters and a very unique
driven element system called the Para-Sleeve.
Stainless steel hardware and clamps are used on
all electrical and mechanical connections.
Hy-Gain's 50 ohm BN-86 balun and new Beta MultiMatch are supplied. Add-on kits for a 30 or 40
meter driven element are available as option QK-
710. The antenna is designed to fit masts from 2"
to 2 1/2" in diameter.
