Moonraker:  X1-HF Vertical 1-50MHz Receiving Antenna


Boost Your Short Wave DX

A Powerful Antenna for SWLs

Christ Taylor at Moonraker has been in touch to let us know that the firm has acquired new stocks of the excellent – and very popular – X1-HF Vertical 1-50MHz antenna. This is a discrete passive short wave receiving antenna supplied with 10 m of downlead terminated in SMA to connect to SDR (and other) receivers.

This antenna has internal, loaded, wire traps to function as a great alternative to a long wire. Ideal for those who want to listen to short wave but have limited space - easy to assemble, easy to use. The key features and specifications are as follows:

  • Type: Helical loaded HF vertical
  • Frequency RX: 1-50MHz
  • Length: 200cm
  • Radials: Not required
  • Mast: Up to 37mm (1.5")
  • Connection: SO239
  • Cable: Comes complete with 10m RG58 Pl259 to SMA


[Look out for a brief review of this antenna in the December issue of RadioUser – Ed.].
