Product Description



MFJ-1898 5.3-54 MHz Portable/Collapsible Antenna

            Get 60/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 and 6-Meters in one truly portable HF antenna!!!

            Take MFJ-1898 with you on your next POTA, SOTA or single-man DXPedition trip!  It easily collapses down to two sections, measuring a sleek 1.25x11.5”. MFJ-1898 will easily fit with your radio, antenna tuner and any other accessories into your backpack. Cover almost all of the HF bands plus 6-Meters for true portable field operation. It will also be great for field day and even parked mobile. See MFJ-1898 mounted on a 5" magnet mount base.

            It handles 125 Watts PEP SSB. Fully assembled it measures just 21.75 inches. Fully telescoped it stretches to a whopping 103”. It’s easy to tune, the tapped tuning section base unscrews to reveal a nifty tuning chart (like a ruler).  Learn your settings for your favorite bands, write them down and quickly retune to different bands – not automatic, but lightning fast!

            The antenna has a reasonably low SWR so an antenna tuner may not be necessary on most bands.  The telescoping whip is made of high-quality stainless steel. The bottom section is constructed of highly durable and strong fiber reinforced plastic. A 3/8-24 threaded connector lets you use it as a parked mobile or even as a quick base station antenna. See MFJ-1898 mounted on a ground rod.  Ground rod, magnet not included.
