The Boom is 3/4" square (with rounded corners) and 37 1/2" 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.

Please check carefully to ensure that you are ordering what your radio requires. This requires ordering a 146/437-10W or 146/437-10WBP above. (FREE U.S. SHIPPING)
18" boom extension at the back of the boom with copper boom splice. This is a flat spice instead of angled like our split booms. This can be used for counterweight or mounting your HT on the boom. This requires ordering a 146/437-10XXX variant above. ALSO, the duplexer must be removed from the boom to use the extension. See here for instructions to remove the handle grip using isopropyl alcohol as a lubricant. This cannot be added to an antenna previously purchased.

If you purchase this for a previously purchased antenna, you have to ream out the back of the boom to 5/8". We caution you in doing this. If you don't know how, you should not do it!
