For Top Portable Performance, Carry a "Big Stick"! Like our Big Ear, this portable monopole features MFJ's rugged 17’ stainless-steel collapsible whip paired with an adjustable high-Q air-wound coil. Efficiency matters, so it's not surprising this winning combination stands head and shoulders above shorter backpack antennas.
