EZ NVIS Antenna

The EZ NVIS is ready to deploy NVIS antenna based on an article by Carl Jelnick, N6VNG (SK). He based his design on the AS-2259/GR a miltary, dual band NVIS antenna set. The antenna comes with a center support and the four assembled and marked antenna elements. You need to add rope, coax and an appropriate mast. The Jackite mast I sell is perfect. The antenna is constructed from soft drawn  14ga insulated wire, weighs 5 lbs and fits in a 1 gal zip bag.

This is NOT a DX antenna. It is an ideal antenna for tactical HF communications for 75/60/40 meters. It also makes a good Field Day antenna for "gap filling" close in stations on 75m & 40m.  Its also useful in deep canyons, dense foliage, behind obstructions or for communications with close stations just out of ground wave range.

To deploy the antenna roll out the 4 elements. Add rope so that the combined length of each leg is 45'.  Attach coax to the center support and connect to a tuner. Raise the center insulator to a height of 12-15'. That's it.

Note: The appropriate mast for the EZl NVIS antenna is either the 31' or 28' mast. The 20' and 13' mast do not have adequate strength to support the antenna at 15'.
