Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Solarcon Max 2000 Antenna Installation. Post #472.


If you have trouble viewing this video, please enter this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/_k17koC2fEY. The Solarcon I-Max 2000 vertical antenna and its close cousin, the Antron 99 (A99), have served CB operators and 10 meter Amateur Radio operators for years.  The Solarcon I-Max 2000, used in conjunction with an antenna transmatch ("tuner"), can be used on the 10, 12, 15, 17, 30, and even 6 meter Amateur Radio Bands.  This video does an good job of explaning how to assemble, install, and use this versatile vertical antenna.  As with any vertical antenna, be sure to use a ground radial or counterpoise system.  My old Antron 99 remains in service as a standby 10 meter antenna and for CB contacts with my neighbors in my rural Hawaii Island subdivision.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free e-mail subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
