AXE1 40 Meter Extender
We're excited to introduce the AXE1 Extender that allows an Elecraft AX1 whip to be used on 40 and 30 meters. It adds 6 inches (15 cm) of overall length. The AX1 with an AXE1 can be attached directly to a hand-held transceiver or supported by an Elecraft AXB1 whip bipod for table-top use.
An antenna tuner is required to use the AXE1. The AX1+AXE1 is very narrow banded on 40 meters, as is typical of all short or electrically small low-band antennas. (All Elecraft transceivers have optional internal antenna tuners compatible with the AX1+AXE1.)
elecraft will begin shipping the AXE1 during the first week of September.
