80/60/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 and 6-Meters in one truly Portable HF Antenna
Take the MFJ-1898 with you on your next POTA, SOTA or single-man DXPedition trip! It easily collapses down into two sections. Measuring a sleek 1.25" x 11.5”, the MFJ-1898 will easily fit with your radio, antenna tuner and any other accessories into your backpack.
Cover almost all of the HF bands plus 6-Meters for true portable field operation. It will also be great for field day and even parked mobile.
The MFJ-1898 handles 125 Watts PEP SSB.
Fully assembled it measures just 21.75 inches. Fully telescoped it stretches to a whopping 103”.
This antenna is easy to tune, the tapped tuning section base unscrews to reveal a nifty tuning chart (like a ruler). Learn your settings for your favorite bands, write them down and quickly retune to different bands – not automatic, but lightning fast!
The MFJ-1898 antenna has a reasonably low SWR so an antenna tuner may not be necessary on most bands.
The telescoping whip is made of high-quality stainless steel.
The bottom section is constructed of highly durable and strong fiber reinforced plastic.
A 3/8-24 threaded connector lets you use it as a parked mobile or even as a quick base station antenna.
