2M HAWKINS VIPER VHF-78 Mk.II

2M Wire Antenna

When you consider taking out Yagi's and colinears up the hills, you gotta think about mounting solutions that are in addition to your HF requirements.

So when I saw the Hawkins Viper VHF78 Mk.II i thought it might offer me a simple solution by affording me the opportunity to run a vertical wire down the length of my Tactical 7000HDS mast which is holding up (normally) a HF Dipole in an inverted-V.

These antennas are "built to order" so it'll take a few days to arrive. When it does, I'll nip up to Winter Hill and run some quick tests. PLEASE NOTE there is a 6M version of this antenna too.
