*** Stainless Steel hardware for long life

*** Halyard Hoist for ease of installation

*** Insulated #14 wire for durability

*** High Strength insulators (may be black, white or gray)

*** 4:1 Voltage Balun and separate line isolator to enhance vertical radiation AND reduce common mode receive noise!

Super convenient and quick – great for contest operation!

Unlike Buckmaster OCF antennas (at a much higher price, and no WARC band or 15 Meter operation), you can transmit and receive on 6, 10, 11, 12, 15, 17, 30, 40 and 80 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 (measured at the radio end of the coax) 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.Use a good quality 52 ohm cable adequate for the power level of your station.The PAL-OCFVR8010-1500 is rated for 1500 watts PEP and a 30% duty cycle for RTTY, AM, or other continuous modes.

Insulators may be black, grey or white depending on stock at hand when order is placed. Wire is stranded, insulated and black color, antenna tuner may be required on some bands

SWR TECH NOTE:The SWR graphs shown are specific to the conditions listed including antenna height, configuration (flat top, inverted V, inverted L, etc.) and direction, feed line length and type, geographic location and soil condition, calibration and accuracy of SWR instruments used. Your SWR measurements will probably be different and manufacturer takes no responsibility or liability for these differences beyond the purchase price of the antenna.

OCF antennas are very convenient as they will allow multiple bands of operation with a simple wire antenna which is fed off center with a 4:1 OCF Current balun with built in feed line choke,
