DX-88 is one of Hygain's Classics.
It offers remarkable DX performance with its extremely low angle of radiation and omni-directional pattern. The DX-77A has low SWR, automatic bandswitching and include a 30 cm heavy duty mast support bracket. Heavy duty, slotted, tapered swaged, aircraft quality aluminum tubing with full circumference compression clamps is used for radiators. Includes all stainless steel hardware. Recessed SO 239 prevents moisture damage.
All bands are easily tuned with the DX-88's exclusive adjustable capacitors. 80 and 40 m. can even be tuned from the grund without having to lower the antenna. Super heavy-duty construction. Any vertical antenna works better with a ground system and the DX-88 is no exception. Surprisingly good performance using just a ground rod can be expected, but Ground and Roof Radial Kits are available for maximum performance. The minimum recommended radial system consists of 16 radials, each 4,3 m long. A resonant radial system will reduce the ground losses and effectively increase the gain of the antenna.
