OCF Masters Testimonials
"I built the Hybrid Balun as described by OCF Masters and in a recent article in CQ magazine. The build was easy, I sourced parts from Mouser and bought the antenna wire in a spool and the gray 5X5 electrical box from Lowes. Stainless hardware was purchased at my local ACE hardware store. Building the balun took a couple of hours using the clear instructions and color photos in CQ. The antenna is now up about 45 feet horizontally. The SWR is great, with numbers so low that I do not need a tuner on the CW portions of all the bands 80 through 10. But the real proof is that this antenna works great - it hears well and gets my QRP signal out well. Thanks!"
Awesome Antenna Choice
"This is an awesome antenna that has exceeded my expectations. After much research I decided that my first long wire antenna would be an OCF Dipole design. The OCF Master design uses a capacitive tuned element that allows for a shorter overall length. The construction is top quality, and because I assembled the antenna myself I was able to set the resonant frequency to meet my preference for FT8 usage. I followed the detailed instructions and built the dual balun feed unit myself with no problems. I don't have large trees in my yard, but I was able to get the antenna installed at a height of about 25'. From the day of installation I have been making DX contacts all over Europe and South America. I have heard (but not completed a QSO yet) stations in AK and HI as well as the Far East and Asia. Please check out this antenna, I highly recommend it as a quality choice."
OCF Antenna Review 80m 1.5 KW
"I purchased this item on a recommendation, it is a big step up from my random wire. Directions clear and helpful, the implementation was resilient to my amateur soldering, craftsmanship and construction. Measuring SWR ca. 2.1 at 7.25 MHz. Placement was uneven terrain over a house with many trees. The greatest compliment one can give to a technology is that it just works. This just works."
OCFmasters 160m 1.5k kit works amazing
"The 160M, 1.5-Kilowatt OCF Antenna Insulator Kit works incredible. I thought i had a good 160m dipole until I installed this kit. I am amazed at how good it works and the RST's I receive... OMG! it works awesome on 160m to 6m. tunes up on all HF bands and 6 meters.
thank you so much OCF Masters
