The Arrow II line of Antennas has been engineered to provide maximum gain and efficiency in the smallest practical size & weight.

Aluminum Arrow Shafts are used for elements.
The 2 Gamma Matches (shown above) are pre-assembled & pre-tuned. One connector for VHF and one for UHF. Only female BNC is available.
The Boom is 3/4" square (with rounded corners) and 40.7" long.
Model BP Split Boom longest part is less than 22 inches long.
Note the big black foam grip for comfortable holding.
Under the foam grip, the boom is drilled & tapped with a 1/4-20 hole for most camera tri-pods.
Boom & elements all have plastic tips for safety.
We have had many questions about how to remove the foam handle grip without tearing it. Video showing how to do so using isopropyl alcohol is here..
Because the antenna is hand held, power should be kept to less than 10 watts maximum. If mounted and away from people, maximum power is 150 watts.
