Unlike Buckmaster OCF antennas (at twice the price, and no WARC band or 15 Meter operation), you can transmit and receive on 12,15 and 17 meters with our OCF - Better engineering and lower price - only from Palomar Engineers!


For best results support center at 30+ feet and ends over 15 feet. Angle of feed each side must be great than 45 degrees or 120 – 180 degrees total between each side preferred. Any length of 50 ohm feed line ok but longer feed lines over 50 feet may show reduced SWR on some bands due to losses in feed line and soil conductivity, nearby objects, etc. Due to local ground conditions, antenna height and feed line length, SWR may vary from samples shown and an antenna tuner may be required or some bands to bring SWR at end of feed line to acceptable levels. Overall length is 95+40 =135 feet.

NI5I: I was using a Buckmaster OCF, was given your 500 watt version second 
hand, then bought your 1500 watt version from HRO last summer. I wanted 
another. I love this antenna!
