** Not recommended for use with rotary swaging machines - talk generated by these types of machines on the swage terminal during swaging may result in the terminal breaking the adhesive which binds it to the insulator body.

For peak radio performance the stainless steel end terminals are insulated from the anodised aluminium body with a special Acetal spacer. The external webs of the spacer help to minimise power leakage a problem with conventional insulators particulaly when wet.

  • Used at the top and bottom of the backstay to create an efficient two way radio antenna
  • Grade 316 stainless steel terminals
  • Aluminium body
  • Acetal spacers
