Advancements over other manufacturers:
No changing of switches, jumpers or coils are required for touch
free operations is something no competitor can claim.
Directional; Unique also to only to the Alpha Multiband Antenna
line of systems is a directional antenna system for international
DX communications that also enhances NVIS (Near Vertical Incident
Skywave) for stateside communications.
The Alpha Match; The protective housing of the Alpha Match is made
of 316 Stainless Steel, which outperforms the Black poly Delrin
that is still popular with all other manufacturers. The inductor is
now encased in a metal housing where it is isolated by a
dielectric. This housing then enables the Alpha Match to
capacitively balance the inductor once the elements are installed.
The MilStick Whip; The composite of the .433 inch diameter MilStick
whip is a high strength, high quality, aerospace 7075-T9 alloy and
at 13 feet is longer, has a larger diameter, & is stronger than
any competitors whip. The construction of each element has a
scratch-resistant hard-anodized surface. This surface is fully
removed from each insert and also removed 2.5 inches inside each
element. The inserts are then electrically bonded, where full
contact RF continuity and connectivity is used to ensure maximum
efficiencies are achieved. At the base of the whip an embedded 8740
Steel (chrome moly) cadmium plated stud supports the MilStick on
the Alpha Match.
The Wiring Used; Sheathed 13 AWG memory free wiring is used, which
has a tensile break strength of 500 pounds that is rated for
temperatures from -40°C to +75°C. VS. Wiring that is so light duty
that it can be wrapped around a kite string holder.
The Padded Field Bag; Made from 600D nylon with embroidered logo
and with high quality zippers. This highly customized bag has a
padded front pocket and a padded larger inner compartment, plus a
shoulder strap with padded shoulder pad.
