Designed as a multi-band, portable antenna for 40m - 10m, the Buddistick is an excellent performer with any rig up to 250 watts. It works exceptionally well with the FT 817, FT-857/897 Elecraft K2 and KX1, IC 703 and other QRP rigs.
The Buddistick comes packaged in a compartmentalized 1000 denier cordura portfolio bag and includes 2 aluminum arms (blue or black), one stainless steel telescopic whip, one adjustable coil, 2 coil clips, mounting kit, a complete counterpoise system, as well as operating manual.
Included is one 31' radial for use as a counterpoise along with a shorter section which is designed to be attached to the back of one of our telescopic whips as a "tunable counterpoise" option when operating space is restricted (as in a hotel room).
The mounting kit for the Buddistick™is a mounting plate and SO-239 adapter for a coax feed. A "soft touch" rubberized clamping knob is used tosecure the plate to a clamp or tripod (1/4" x 20 threads).
