15 M (21 MHz)

15 Meter Amateur Ham Radio Band (21.000 – 21.450 MHz)

ZF2AH in the Cayman Islands in SSB DX QSOs with stations in Japan and Alaska during an opening on the 15 Meters Ham Radio band. These DX QSOs were recorded using a Yaesu FT-950 transceiver and a ground mounted Hustler 4BTV vertical antenna at ham radio station WE5I. The distance from WE5I to CX4BW is approximately 1480 miles.

In this video, CU2KI in the Azores makes SSB DX QSOs on the 15 Meters Ham Radio band during a sustained opening on F2 propagation. The radio at WE5I is a Yaesu FT-950 connected to a Hustler 4BTV vertical antenna.

Ready to Hang 15 Meter Half Wave Dipole Antenna with Balun – 15HWDB

  • Made in the USA
  • 15 Meters / 21 MHz
  • Made from #14 7/22 stranded hard-drawn copper wire
  • Will handle up to 1500 Watts with SWR below 2:1
  • Stainless Steel Hardware
  • The Frequency Devices Half Wave Center Fed Dipole antenna with Balun is tuned to 21 MHz (15 Meters). It uses #14 7/22 stranded hard-drawn copper wire to meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code and have the best radiation efficiency. The antenna has been tested to withstand 100 pounds of strain over time without breaking. It can be installed as an inverted V or as a straight dipole. Antenna resonant frequency will vary with how high you hang the antenna and what kinds of buildings or trees are near the antenna. This means that an antenna tested at the factory out in the clear and up in the air may test fine at the factory and not work at your location. Our antennas are built using 18-8 stainless steel hardware, all internal nuts are self-locking, all screw holes are sealed with RTV sealant, and other holes are sealed with Coax-SealTM. These antennas are made in our factory in Ottawa, Illinois and shipped directly to you through the US Post Office. This antenna is about 22 feet long. Bill Franklin, K9EIF
