Discover the BIG SIGNAL 1BS-5B antenna, this single element Quad design covers up to 5 bands in HF from 10 to 20 meters, the best high performance bi-directional antenna option to get started in DX in HF with a simple configuration and not a big investment.
Why choose the BIG SIGNAL 1BS-5B antenna over a Yagi or multi-band Dipole antenna?
· 5 full wavelength bands, achieving maximum performance and efficiency. · Very low noise: Being a closed antenna and horizontally polarized, it will allow you to attenuate the QRN and urban noise, improving the reception quality of weak signals in DX in the band. · Very low radiation angle even when installed at a low height: This allows us to make fewer jumps until we reach the DX, which results in a stronger signal on the other side. For this reason it is known that quad antennas are the first to open and the last to close the propagation. · Incredible bandwidth: SWR below 1.5:1 in the 5 working bands, forget about the use of the tunner. · Only 5 meters in total width, ideal for installations with limited space. · Possibility of adding a Reflector element in the future to convert the antenna into the 2BS-5B model. · Super robust construction for extreme durability. · Easy installation: You can install on a braced mast, it does not require any adjustment once installed.
In times where unfortunately the noise in the cities is getting louder, a closed antenna and horizontal polarization is the definitive solution to improve the reception of DX signals.
Discover the magic of Cubical Quad antennas and live a new experience in HF DX like never before...
