Lightning Bolt Antennas

2 and 6 METERS




We offer from 1 element up to 10 element versions of the 2 meter quad.These antennas work equally well for both horizontal and vertical polarization.
The SO-239 connector is standard with antenna.

At the right you see the 10 element 2 meter quad. This is the antenna to have if your working weak signal contacts on SSB or if you happen to live out away from any local 2 meter FM repeater.
