The 23CM22EZA is a true product of the computer age. The recently updated element design is stamped out holding spacing and element lengths to .003” tolerance. The original fiberglass boom has been replaced with 1/2” dia. aluminum. The metal boom shortens the elements for peak gain at 1296. Each antenna performs as perfectly as the next and the gain tops any other antenna of comparable boom length. With excellent directivity and a very clean pattern, it is perfect for high gain stacked arrays. Applications are long haul tropo, EME, ATV, Repeater, base station and OSCAR operations. The 'EZ' is handy for ‘hill-topping’ and portable uses because of its modest size, weight, simple construction and rear mounting. Structurally, the 23CM22EZA elements are fabricated in just TWO sets, eliminating ALL measurement and assembly errors. The Broad band folded dipole driven element design is unique, with a balun and matching inside the folded dipole itself. External connections are limited to a single O-ring sealed “N” feed. Internal connections are sealed in a machined and aluminum brazed housing. When other designs are deteriorating from environmental factors, the '23CM22EZA will still be as good as new and performing to 'spec'!
