DX Engineering's patent pending* 17 Meter Add-On Kits add 17 meter band coverage to the Hustler BTV series vertical antennas without giving up any existing band coverage.

These kits will operate across the entire 17 meter band, 18.068 through 18.168 MHz, with an SWR of 1.5:1 or less. No disassembly of the existing antenna is required--simply attach one of these kits to the BTV, make some minimal tuning adjustments, and you're on the air with an additional band! Quality DX Engineering Instructions accompany each kit!

Note: Whenever the DX Engineering "Documentation" tab is available, please look at the associated files for additional product information.

17 meters provides terrific propagation when the band is open. Get on board with DX Engineering 17 Meter BTV Add-On Kits and your existing BTV antenna!

DXE-AOKB-17M 17 meter
Took about 30min to set up and tune swr is 1.1.1 across the 17m band, nice add-on kit.
More than just a piece of wire
I bought this after deliberating for a while, due to what I thought was an expensive piece of wire. It turns out that this is a very well made antenna add-on. There are a lot of parts and it looked really good. I use it for PSK and FT8 and with 25Watts, am easily getting into Russia and all over Europe. Great fun for the money. Recommended!
I was so impressed with the add-on kit, I bought another! Why? Becasue I have a Hustler at my house and another at my girlfriend's. The ground conductivity there is better than my home and the performance is exceptional. You'll need to understand how a Hustler resonates. Don't just bung in the ATU and hope for the best - resonate it HF to LF and with this and the other kit, your 6BTV becomes an 8 band marvel. Especially where space is restricted. I have wire mesh buried under both of mine and they work a treat. Again, not cheap but highly recommended if you're prepared to spend the time to make it work. Mine took about an hour per kit.
Not cheap but well made and was up & running in a couple of hours, mounted, tuned and along with the 12M version. You need to have the knowledge how to resonate a Hustler xBTV. DO NOT rely upon your ATU read the manual and resonate HF to LF. Can't expect it to work as well as even just a resonant dipole but low profile, fit's in a tiny garden and works. 8 bands on a single pole! For these reasons I'll give it five!
