Brand new and about to be released to the public is the Buddistick Pro from Buddipole, which is a great option for a light weight portable antenna for HF Ham Radio, POTA – Parks On The Air, and other Portable Ham Radio events.
Designed as a multi-band, portable antenna for 40m – 10m, the Buddistick is an excellent performer with any rig up to 250 watts. It works exceptionally well with the FT 817, Elecraft K2 and KX1, IC 703 and other QRP rigs.
The Buddistick comes packaged in a compartmentalized 1000 denier cordura portfolio bag and includes 2 aluminum arms (blue or black), one standard telescopic whip, one adjustable coil, 2 coil clips, mounting kit, a complete counterpoise system, as well as operating manual.
Included is one 31′ radial on a line winder for use on all bands 10 – 40m.
The mounting kit for the Buddistickis a mounting plate and SO-239 adapter for a straight coax feed. A rubberized clamping knob is used to secure the plate to a clamp or tripod (1/4″ x 20 threads).
Accessories for the Buddistick include an adjustable clamp which allows for a full range of motion and permits the user to operate the Buddistick from a picnic table or a condo railing, for example.
You can also mount your Buddistick on a mini-tripod for use on the ground or on the deck or patio at your home.
