Cushcraft’s world famous R8 now has a big brother!
Big Brother R9 now includes 75/80 Meters for local ragchewing and worldwide low band DX without radials!
Its omni-directional low angle radiation gives you exciting and easy DX on all 9 bands: 75/80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10 and 6 Meters with low SWR. QSY instantly -- no antenna tuner needed.
Use full 1500 Watts SSB/CW when the going gets tough to break through pileups and poor band conditions.
The R9 is super easy to assemble, installs just about anywhere, and its low profile blends inconspicuously into the background in urban and country settings alike.
Installs in an area about the size of a child's sandbox -- no ground radials to bury with all RF-energized surfaces safely out of reach.
Thick fiberglass insulators, all-stainless steel hardware and 6063 aircraft-aluminum tubing is double or triple walled at key stress points to handle anything Mother Nature can dish out.
R9 is 31.5 feet tall, 25 lbs. Mounting mast 1.25 to 2 inches. Wind surface area is 4 square feet. Wind survivability is 60 MPH.
Tilt-base lets you tilt your antenna up and down easily by yourself. Makes it easy to work on by yourself, no need to call your ham buddies over to help take it down and lift back up.
Three-point guy kit for high winds.
