Post Identify this HF mobile antenna.
Can some antenna guru possibly tell me the name of this antenna, And possibly the maker/distributor ?

It stands around 7ft tall so i am assuming its erected when stationary :D There are another two pieces which can be swapped for the desired band so it has seven pieces altogether.

I am not a mobile antenna person so i have no idea, I may actually try and make a mount to use it at home though, Or just move it on.

Thanks.

Ps: If posted in wrong section then i apologize. :bye:

PPs: I am currently decorating my daughters bedroom :P

it looks like a home brew job to me done by someone with access to engineering materials. The radials seem to be just monoband HF whips bought for about 15 quid each and a coil for the base loading bought from a coil or trap supplier or at a rally.

Looks like there is some writing on the coil.

The radial mounting looks like a commercial one

The writing [Stickers] on the coils are to indicate what band they are for, It certainly doesn't look homebrew to me.

I will have to put it together outside and take some better photos of it.

Thanks for the replies.

Found this post on Eham with a very similar antenna, His was called an Valor AB5T.
