MFJ 1899T Multiband Portable 80 Thru 6M works with Yaesu FT817
This special antenna was designed specifically for the extremely popular Yaesu FT-817 Multimode HF/VHF/UHF Portable Transceiver.
This antenna covers all bands (including WARC bands) from 80 Meters to 6 Meters. Power rating is 25 Watts.
When fully telescoped it is approximately 5 feet 5 inches long and is fitted with a BNC connector. This makes it ideal for the new FT-817 or other QRP portable radio.
Band changing is achieved by plugging the "wander lead" into the appropriate socket on the base coil, and fine tuning adjustments are made using the 10 section telescopic whip.
The whip unscrews from the base matching coil, so collapsed, the antenna measures just 12.6 inches.
