8-Band: 160, 75/80, 40, 20, 17, 12, 10, & 6 meters. 270 feet (90+180) long.
Can be used as a off center fed shortwave antenna to provide continuous coverage from 500 kHz to 60 MHz. SWL
Quickly switch bands and eliminate a tuner as one more thing to adjust. Eliminate send/receive tuner loss.
Due to the fact that one wire leg of the antenna is shorter than the other, the OCF is more convenient to erect than a regular center fed dipole. Less coax is required.
Check the SWR always BEFORE using with any antenna tuner.
The dipole is constructed using top quality, FLEX-WEAVE TM is a sophisticated hybrid aerial wire. Its new innovation provides rope lay construction strength and high flexibility. It can be tied in knots to insulators and untied for repeated use.
FLEX-WEAVE TM is sometimes referred to as "wire rope" or "jewelers rope". It will not kink or rust out as will copper-clad wire. This flexible wire has also been used for rapid deployment, spool-out, military aerials.
FLEX-WEAVE TM #12 (268 strands of #36 wire). It is excellent for quads, dipoles, long wires, and rapid deployment (spooled-out) antennas. Highly UV resistant PVC jacket.
FLEX-WEAVE TM is the "Cadillac of aerial wire". It has been written about in all amateur radio publications since its introduction in 1989. This revolutionary product has been used by thousands of hams, commercial firms, and government agencies.
The insulation has superior abrasion resistance for running through trees and is UV and weather resistant for use on the seacoast or in other harsh environments. They'll stand up to acid rain, high wind loads, and high snow and ice loads.
The W2AU is the preferred Balun of Amateurs worldwide. W2AU’s operate at a low VSWR from 1.8 to 40 mHz, and handle powers up to 2 KW PEP (at SWRs of less than 3:1). W2AU Baluns are transformer designs with ferrite cores to provide 95% minimum coupling efficiency. Each has a built-in lightning arrestor, hang up hook, and 600 lbs of pull-apart strength in a weatherized, rugged package using only stainless steel hardware and quality materials. Two models are available. The 1:1 matches 50(75) ohms unbalanced coax to 50(75) balanced dipoles. The 4:1 matches 50(75) ohm unbalanced coax to 200(300) ohm folded dipoles.
No trimming - fully assembled, complete and ready to go with end insulators and crimped center and end connections.
Add your 50 Ohm coaxial feed line, suspension rope and go
Can be hung Flat or inverted V configuration. Remember stay away from power lines.

This is a fine piece of equipment and well constructed of durable materials. It will be a welcome addition to my station.
well builted and easy to set up
had it up and working in less than 5 hrs. buy my self
sends and receives great 6-160
Well made easy to install and worked great the first time. Very pleased. Quick service. OCF 8 bands 160-6 HF windom antenna
Very seamless order & shipping was quite fast. Antenna looks to be very well put together from high quality components. I do not have it up yet but plan to soon.
