OCF Dipole 7 band 80-6 meters antenna

  • Image 1
NI4L OCF 80-6
5.00 LBS
$12.50 (Fixed shipping cost)

Product Description

7-Band: 75/80, 40, 20, 17, 12, 10, & 6 meters. 135 feet (45+90) long.

Can be used as a off center fed shortwave antenna to provide continuous coverage from 500 kHz to 60 MHzSWL

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  #14 (168 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.

  1. Well built antenna 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2015

    Well built, only got it up 20 ft on first install but works as advertised on all bands. Will try to get it higher which should lower the swr. I like the cut of the antenna for the phone portion of the band.

  2. Good workmanship 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2015

    The antenna arrived in 3 days from my order. It was well packed and very well constructed. I was only able to install it at 27 feet high and as a flattop antenna. The antenna covers the upper frequencies of most bands so if you are a CW operator, as I am, you will likely need a good tuner. I wish there were an opportunity to specify the Phone or CW end of the band when the antenna was ordered.

  3. Havn't installed yet but blown away with construction quality 5 Star Review

    As a professional electronics systems owner/installer after 32 years I know construction quality when I see it...Well done considering cost.

  4. JT-65 30m QSO to Japan on 2 watts from Los Angeles ... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2015

    1) Hoisted the 7-band OCF dipole up about 30 to 35 ft high between the front yard tree and the backyard tree.

    2) About half of the dipole runs over the single story roof by about 12-15 ft.

    3) Fed with 125 ft of RG-213 coax (from MPD) into IC-7000.

    4) JT-65 QSO on 30m with 1 watt into Japan (JA5XI) who received my signal at -25 and was also QRP at 5 watts on April 1, 2015.

    5) Have used WSPR from Los Angeles at 1 watt on 30m with report from Australia at SNR -26.

    6) Had checked into a few mid-west SSB QSO parties on 20m over the April 4, 2015 weekend using about 75 watts from Los Angeles with RS at 59.

    7) Have recently used 10m (JA2ATE) and 12m (JH1MLV) JT-65 to QSO with Japan, and 17m (VA7HZ) JT-65 to QSO with Canada from Los Angeles. Also recent PSK-31 20m QSO into Cambodia (XU7TZG) on 25 watts from Los Anglees.

    So far a great antenna for digital modes and SSB. Will be trying lower bands 80m and 40m later.

  5. Outstanding performance! The antenna construction is robust, recently taking 50mph gusts from a storm with ease, and the on-air perforance has been nothing short of spectacular. 5 Star Review

    Recommended without reservation for the performance and convience!

  6. VEry satisfied with quality and and construction; hears well 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Dec 2014

    Just strung this up at about 35 feet and luckily it just fit my yard space. Good quality well built and has good "ears" Working 100 watts I worked LU, CE, North Dakota and California. Generally if I hear them I can work them. Use it with a tuner to minimize SWR spikes but I'm happy I purchased it.

  7. OCF FLEX WEAVE DIPOLE. A+++++ 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2014

    I can't say enough good things about this antenna. If your on the wire about going with the flex weave...pull the trigger. Great construction by Chris.

  8. Simply Amazed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2014

    I have had this Antenna for a couple of weeks and finally got it up late yesterday afternoon. Head Phones in place last night and was amazed at the Stations on my Kenwood 2000 I had never heard. My old setup was an 80/40 Fan Dipole. More Bands to work now and listening on 20 meters now. Happy as can be.

    Very good construction. Works as described on web site. My QSO's have greatly improved over the end fed that I was using. Very happy with this antenna.
