The CAROLINA WINDOM® has been used
by 'Big Gun' DX'ers, Little
Pistols, and DX'peditions for 25
years. You get the same sort of
performance in only 69 feet.
* Based on user reports, field
evaluations, and product reviews.
Gain is due primarily to the low
angle radiation pattern. The 20
meter performance is even better
then the standard CAROLINA WINDOM®
in most installations.
** 80 - 10 meters: 1500 watts
CW/SSB duty-cycles.
6 m: 200 watts CW/SSB duty-cycles.
This antenna is not rated for AM,
RTTY and other high duty-cycle
modes.

The performance of the CAROLINA
WINDOM® - half the length.

Imagine the same performance choice
of 'Big Gun' DX'ers and
DX'peditions. Since 1992, you heard
the CAROLINA WINDOM from Navassa
and Albania among many other
DX'peditions.
Why not take advantage of their big
signal secret with the CAROLINA
WINDOM® Compact™?

This antenna can give you an S-unit
or two advantage. You can't buy so
much added performance for so
little money anywhere else!


The CAROLINA WINDOM® was the first
antenna to take advantage of
'VERT™' (Vertically Enhanced
Radiation Technique) and this
feature continues with the CAROLINA
WINDOM® Compact™.

VERT™ (Vertically Enhanced
Radiation Technique) is a radiating
feed line technique that produces a
controlled, low angle vertical
radiation pattern. The effect is
absent from most ordinary antennas.
Field tests, user reports and seven
product reviews confirm that the
CAROLINA WINDOM® will give you a
remarkable performance advantage.
The off-center fed CAROLINA WINDOM®
provides unusually good performance
on all bands covered, including the
WARC bands. It's an ideal antenna
for those of you who do not wish to
use a tower and beam. The CAROLINA
WINDOM® is also ideal for those of
you who want a high performance
antenna to cover the bands not
covered by your beam antenna.

The Secret

The secret is the Vertical
Radiator. Combined with the
Dedicated Matching Unit and special
Line Isolator, the Vertical
Radiator is responsible for the
low-angle vertical radiation
pattern.
