Keeping things simple (and lightweight), this 3rd-generation of our popular dipole/doublet centre is great for portable operating or even for use at the home QTH.  New larger size with additional holes for strain-relief plus the direct feeder connection allows you to mount it high up a telescopic fishing-pole without the extra weight of connectors.  Their bright-yellow colour makes them easy to find if dropped in long grass.

These are precision laser-cut so for extra strength you could glue 2 together if you really wanted - you can select "Centre-Piece Only" if you don't need the other bits.  The corners have a slight radius to make them easier to handle.

  • Yellow 3mm acrylic centre-piece, 80(w)x100(h)mm
  • Stainless-steel M4 hardware kit - 2 bolts, 4 nuts, 8 washers, 2 solder-tags, 2 solder-spades
  • 3x cable-ties for supporting balanced/coax feeder
  • Includes plastic guy-runners (as end-insulators) plus 2 Velcro Cable-Ties
  • Leaflet with aerial tips - perfect for the Foundation licence
  • Extra M4 hardware fixings are also available here

Just add aerial wires plus coax (eg: RG174, RG58, Mini-8) or balanced feeder for a complete fixed/portable HF aerial solution.

If used as part of a Doublet, you will need to convert the balanced feeder to coax - best practice is to use a current balun and the shortest length of coax possible.  A 1:1 Current Balun (aka: Choke) is preferred in most cases over the typically "QRP" 4:1 voltage balun found in many ATUs.
