Antenna Wire - lightweight - 100m

***HOT SELLER***

100m of similar antenna wire to that which we use for our Band Hopper. A nice ductile wire for easy handling and winding.

Suitable for power levels up to 150 Watts at 50 Ohms.

Available in three colours

  • yellow for high visibility applications, and
  • military-green (MOST POPULAR)
  • brown for stealth applications.

These wires are made for SOTABEAMS to our own specification

Options

Buy two reels or more to get even lower prices!

Buy in 500m drums (great for radials etc)

    Excellent value for money

    Posted by Tim on 5th Aug 2018

    Also used on my 10m roach pole.

    Now hidden nailed around my perimeter fence as a stealth random end fed. Home made 9:1 and some grounding rods and I have a very effective antenna that tunes all the HF bands. Total expenditure about £16. Cheap as chips!

    Random Wire for QRP/P and FT-817

    Posted by Chris Andrew on 4th Jul 2018

    I was really pleased with the quality of this wire, especially as it's the first wire purchase that I've made. Always good quality from Richard.

    Ideal for where I live

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Apr 2018

    With an exceptionally small back garden, I've managed to make an 80m and 40m linear loaded dipole that's almost invisible!

    60 meter antenna - Great!

    Posted by Tom on 11th Apr 2018

    Use this lightweight, green wire to build a 60m NVIS antenna.
    You can hardly see it in the trees. Durable and easy to throw into
    a tree.

    NVIS "X" Configuaration

    Posted by Gary Kirk on 16th Dec 2017

    I decided to build a cross section two element 1/2 wave dipole "inverted V" with one element being tuned to 40mtr and the other element, at 90 degree from the other, tune for 80mtr. I bought this spool of 100 mtr wire and completed my build. The antenna wire was excellent for what I needed. Strong enough not to stretch or difficult to put on the winders, and light enough to carry in my backpack for portable use. I would highly recommend this for any wire antenna that anyone is thinking of making as it really is top quality stuff.

    Good antenna wire, easy to solder, doesn't seem to stretch

    Posted by Robert M0NVQ on 12th Nov 2017

    This lightweight antenna wire is really useful. I am using it in conjunction with Sotabeam Versatile Top Antenna Insulators at the ends with Sotabeams Hi Viz Antenna Cord for my inverted ‘V’ 40 meter/15 meters dipole. I found the wire easy to solder to the feeder. The antenna wire doesn’t seem to stretch. The Sotabeams HI Viz Antenna Cord is good because my dipole ends are tied to trees in the garden, so I don’t stumble in to them. The Sotabeams Versatile Top Antenna Insulators make good insulators for the dipole ends. I did have this set up as a 40 meters / 20 meters inverted V fan dipole which worked really well. Currently using the single 40 meter (7MHz) dipole I found it resonant on 15 meters (21MHz). With plenty of wire on the reel, I am going to put the 20 meter dipole back on as a 40/20/15 meter fan dipole.

    Antenna wire for stealth

    Posted by Dave on 28th Oct 2017

    Purchased this wire for two projects:
    1. After building an HF vertical antenna that has low visual impact, three 5 mt. radials were required to finish the project. This fitted the bill perfectly.
    2. A wideband lightweight portable antenna that required no
    tuning was the next construction and this wire proved to be more than adequate.
